Watch: Thurles Parish Priest To Lineout For Borris-Ileigh Against Sarsfields In Tipp SHC Final
By PJ Browne

The Tipperary county final takes place today at Semple Stadium in Thurles (it's live on TG4) with Thurles Sarsfields taking on Borris-Ileigh.

Sarsfields are aiming to with their fourth title in a row while Borris are in their first county final since 1988. It's the first Tipp senior final meeting between the two neighbouring clubs since 1955.

Among the Borris panel is a man usually involved in a very different activity of a Sunday. Fr. Vincent Stapleton happens to be the parish priest in the Bohernanave Church which is just across the road from Semple Stadium and the Sarsfields clubhouse.

Saturday evening's RTÉ news profiled the hurling priest, who is the cousin of Tipperary All-Ireland winner, Paddy Stapleton, and All-Ireland club winner with Cuala, Shane Stapleton.

"If we win there won't be a cow milked or a mass said for a couple of days - I won't say a fortnight!" Stapleton told Marty Morrissey.
