Tipperary All-Ireland Minor Hurling Champions 2006
The boys from the Premier County had upset most pre-match predictions recording a convincing 2-18 to 2-07 win over Galway in the 2006 All-Ireland Minor Hurling Final. Tipperary were quickly into their stride and seemed to be able to score at will. Corner forwards Patrick Bourke and Timmy Dalton were the pick of the crop as they weighed in with a combined 2-10, with some exquisite scores.
There was no doubting the merit of the Tipperary win, after captain Joey McLoughney lifted the cup. ESB Chief Executive Padraig McManus presented the “Man-of-the-Match” award to Patrick Bourke.
