Fulltime in Athy Senior Hurling Challenge game: Tipperary 3-20, Dublin 0-26.
Dublin came back from being behind by 7 points (1-13 to 0-09) at halftime to being one point behind after 55 minutes (2-15 to 0-20), and kept in the game but the goals put Tipp over the line. Good to see the Dubs registering 26 points on the board, and lots of lads got the legs stretched. Looks like some work still to be done in the back lines to firm us up after our recent spate of injuries.
