Thurles made wait as the Tipperary Senior Championship throws-in
Thurles Sarsfields’ game was postponed, as Borris-Ileigh win and Nenagh look the best of the rest.
The Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship kicked-off this weekend, but 2017 champions Thurles Sarsfield were made wait after Carrick Swans failed to field a team.
But elsewhere, there were wins for Borris-Ileigh, Nenagh and a huge win for Upperchurch-Drombane, who defeated a Seamus Callanan-less Drom & Inch.
In the Seamus Ó Riain Cup, Burgess narrowly edged JK Brackens, while Silvermines looked impressive with a comprehensive win against Templederry.
