THE ALL-IRELAND hurling champions Tipperary were welcomed back to Semple Stadium last night with the Liam MacCarthy Cup in front of an estimated 30,000 supporters.

The Premier County defeated old rivals Kilkenny in Sunday’s final to lift their third title this decade, making it their most successful spell since the 1960s.
