Division One final – Tipperary and Wexford come face-to-face in the Division One National League final on Saturday, which highlights the re-emergence of these forces. Tipperary were the kingpins of the early 00’s and Wexford brilliantly claimed their first All Ireland senior title in 32 years in 2007. Both teams contested the National League final in 2004 when Tipperary emerged victors.
Both teams are strong on paper, and while Tipperary might the surprise finalists, they proved last Sunday what they are capable of hitting 2-19 against holders Kilkenny.
Wexford had a tame year in ’08, and will too, be anxious for some silverware
Best of Luck to Michelle Hearne, Mag & Kate Kelly on Saturday
