Despite losing by a point to Dublin in Saturday’s National Hurling League quarter-final at Semple Stadium, Tipperary manager Liam Sheedy, although admitting disappointment, insisted “we are taking shape.”

The Portroe man was pragmatic about the outcome.

We had a poor day,” he began.

We knew what Dublin would bring to the game. They had topped the other division. They were spirited and won good ball in the air. Their tackle count was also impressive but we never got out of the blocks”.

Tipperary never led Dublin and started badly going a goal behind after five minutes. In addition they shot eighteen wides but Liam Sheedy felt they were not in a bad position at half-time, trailing 1-10 to 0-9.

After a slow start we got back to be 0-7 to 1-7 behind coming to half-time. We had some good chances and missed them but I did not feel we were in a really bad position at half-time.”

He added: “We got back level with them a couple of times in the second half but when you shoot eighteen wides, you’re bound to pay the price. Dublin were very spirited and showed a much greater hunger than we did. The result is very disappointing but we can have no complaints.”
