1997 All-Ireland Hurling Final: Clare v Tipperary


This is the inaugural year of the new championship format that allows beaten provincial finalists re-enter the All-Ireland championship. And already it has delivered a historic final between two counties from the same province. Clare beat Tipp in the Munster final and added Kilkenny’s scalp in the All-Ireland semi-final. Ger Loughnane’s team are favourites but Tipperary put out champions Wexford in their semi-final and have tradition on their side. However Clare are hoping to establish a tradition of their own. Clare 0-20 Tipperary 2-13
