Tipperary senior hurling championship saw wins for Toomevara and Kilruane MacDonagh at Templemore

Perfect conditions at Templemore saw some fine hurling in both games

It was a good day for the teams from North Tipperary at todays double header in Templemore in the Tipperary Water county senior hurling championship, with Toomevara and Kilruane MacDonagh coming out on top against Moycarkey Borris and Killenaule respectively.

On a glorious afternoon for hurling, and with the pitch in top order, there was some fine fare in the matches which drew a sizeable attendance.

In the first game, 0-10 from Tipperary panelist Mark McCarthy helped Toomevara to a 2-19 to 1-17 win over Moycarkey Borris who had 0-11 from their talisman Kieran Morris.  The Toome' lads led by 2-8 to 0-9 at the interval - their goals coming from Paul Ryan in the 12th minute, and then Joey McLoughney in the 33rd minute.

McLoughney finished with 1-4 to his name, but it was the first half goals which were to prove the difference right the way through. Moycarkey Borris put together some good sequences of play, but they just could not get back on terms, even allowing for the addition of a  Max Hackett goal four minutes into the second half.  Toomevara were just able to keep the scoreboard ticking over and each time Moycarkey Borris came back at them, they tagged on more. 

The loss of Anthony McKelvey through injury for the last quarter didn't help the mid men's cause and they had to give best to a Toome' side which showed great endeavour throughout. Final score Toomevara 2-19 Moycarkey Borris 1-17.
