Tipperary manager Liam Sheedy says his side “fought like champions” in their All-Ireland SHC quarter-final defeat to Galway earlier today.

The Tribesmen edged a 3-23 to 2-24 win at the LIT Gaelic Grounds to book a date against Limerick next weekend.

Speaking to GAA afterwards, Sheedy said he couldn’t have asked for more from his players.

“Just came up a bit short. Tight margins. Fought like champions, went out like champions and really that’s all I can ask,” said the two-time All-Ireland winning boss.

“When you’re against a quality side like Galway, it’s always going to be nip and tuck. It’s proven over the years it’s a one-score match every time we meet.

“Unfortunately, we had to play a man down for over 20 minutes and that was always going to be a tall ask but we stayed it in to the finish.

“Galway shaded it on the day but I’d be so proud of how my lads went about their business. They gave me everything and that’s really all you can ask for but we are really disappointed. We were mad keen to progress in this championship.”
