Tipperary All-Ireland Minor Football Champions 2011
Tipperary won their first All-Ireland Minor Football Championship title since 1934 with a sensational 3-09 to 1-14 comeback win over Dublin at Croke Park.
Dublin led by six points at one stage, and appeared to be headed for a comfortable victory.
But Tipperary, managed by 28-year-old David Power, displayed remarkable courage and character to produce a stunning second-half display.
Substitutes Philip Quirke and Colman Kennedy were the heroes, coming off the bench to hit a combined total of 1-05 as the Munster champions turned a memorable minor decider on its head.
Kennedy’s winning goal three minutes from the end was the best of four magnificent strikes which illuminated a wonderful contest that produced a fairytale ending for the hurling stronghold of Tipperary.
