Tipperary V Limerick: Previous Championship Meetings

Tipperary and Limerick have met on 63 previous occasions in the Senior Hurling
Championship. All but two of those meetings – the 2009 All Ireland Semi final at Croke Park
and the 2004 Qualifier at the Gaelic Grounds – were Munster Championship fixtures.

Tipperary leads the way on 32 wins to Limerick’s 21, with 10 games drawn. Tipperary also
received a walk over in the Munster semi final of 1899 and Limerick had a similar experience
in 1902.

Tipp won 9 of their 32 successes by a goal or less while Limerick won 7 of their 21 by a goal
or less.

The 2007 saga is one of the highlight’s of Tipp v Limerick history – Limerick eventually won
by three points, 0-22 to 2-13, after three games and two periods of extra time. It was the first
time since 1926 that a Munster Senior Hurling championship game had taken three games to
produce a winner
