Meanwhile, Galway manager Anthony Cunningham says yesterday’s match was a big step up from their opening League game against Clare, when the Tribesmen ran out narrow one point winners. The full time score in Semple Stadium was Tipperary 2-18 Galway 0-20 points.Tipp now head into a two week break before they must travel to Cusack Park to take on Clare who lost both their opening League games. The Premier County got their first win of this year’s campaign yesterday after they ran out four point winners over Galway in their Round 2 Division 1A game at Semple Stadium. Two second half goals for Tipp by John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer and Seamie Callanan saw O’Shea’s side get past a dogged Galway team in Thurles. Speaking after yesterday’s win the Kilruane-MacDonaghs native said he’s just glad of the two points as the competitiveness of the division means the results could go eitherway.
