Barrett, McGrath and Lynch were the nominees.

TIPPERARY DUG DEEP to secure a place in a second successive Munster senior hurling final yesterday.

Despite being reduced to 14 men in the first-half, Michael Ryan’s side still coped and managed to see off Limerick in Semple Stadium.

It was a testament to their brilliant defensive effort and central to their success was the contribution of corner-back Cathal Barrett.

The Holycross-Ballycahill player stood out and got the nod from RTÉ’s Sunday Game pundits Seanie McGrath and Cyril Farrell last night to claim the man-of-the-match award.

The other nominees were Barrett’s teammate Noel McGrath and Limerick forward Cian Lynch.
