Kerry claim McGrath Cup with easy win over Tipp

Tipperary were always playing second fiddle to Kerry in Tipperary Town

Kerry claimed the McGrath Cup in Munster with a facile 1-12 to 1-05 win over Tipperary at Seán Treacy Park.

Darran O'Sullivan struck home early as the men from the Kingdom managed a first-half tally of 1-07.

Tipperary, playing against a stiff breeze, managed just two points in reply.

There was to be no comeback for the home side, as Eamonn Fitzmaurice's side claimed the early-season silverware, although they goaled late to give the scoreboard a respectable look.
