Tipperary got a taste of the work they still need to do to catch All Ireland champions Cork as the rebels pulled away in the second half to record a ten point win in the Munster Senior Camogie Championship final on Saturday.

Adding to the defeat to Cork in the intermediate final the week previous, it is a set-back for Tipperary who had been building momentum so far this year and manager Bill Mullaney and his backroom team must immediately set about rebuilding the players confidence as they face into the All Ireland series in a few weeks time.

Cork don’t carry the favourites tag for no reason, bringing intensity and will to retain their Munster crown (62nd time in all) with a great display of skill workrate and style that was a treat to watch from these worthy winners.

Tipperary's cause wasn't helped by being forced to line out without star forward Cait Devane through injury, however, Cork weren't at full strength either without their usual net minder Aoife Murray, midfielder Ashling Thompson and corner forward Hannah Looney.
