Liam Sheedy Proud To Overcome Doubters, Questionable Decisions And Challenges

The top two rivals will go at it again. Tipperary are back in the All-Ireland final once more. Kilkenny await.

For manager Liam Sheedy, it's a remarkable feat in his first year back at the helm. The Tipperary boss cut an elated figure in his post-match interview.

Liam Sheedy

Huge character from my lads. Over the course of the last month, it has been questioned a bit about what these boys can bring. To see what they brought there today, a few decisions that did not go our way. We had the ball in the back of the net and it didn't count.

The way we came back from five points down, the way we used the ball, the way we put our bodies on the line. I've a very small job to do in all of this, it's those players. They way they went about their business with their backs to the wall was monumental and I'm so proud for them.

On the referee's performance, Sheedy was equitable: "I know Sean very well. He is a very competent referee. The game was moving at such a pace, it is certainly not an easy job. My job is much easier. From our point of view, there was a few times you thought you might get the break."

So it's Brian Cody and Kilkenny next. A date in Croke Park in August. Fireworks assured.
