Tipp waited 'six long years' to win this All-Ireland said Brendan Maher in his captain's speech after lifting Liam McCarthy.
Victory meant the release of pent-up emotion for many of the Tipperary players.
In his post match interview on RTÉ, Bubbles O'Dwyer declared Tipp 'Champions of Fucking Ireland'.
Like his captain Brendan, Paudie Maher also won his second All-Ireland medal. The Thurles Sarsfields player was clearly emotional after the final whistle.
Sportsfile captured some superb images of his post-match emotional state.
