Tipperary breaking camogie's top-three 'glass ceiling' is huge positive

Former Cork goalkeeper Aoife Murray says Tipperary reaching the Very Camogie League final and really mixing it with the entrenched top three is a "massive positive" for the sport.

Tipp ended a 15-year wait to book a place in a national senior final at the weekend and they will come up against one of the top trio, Galway, in the Division 1A decider at Croke Park on 14 April.

Galway, Kilkenny and Cork have dominated the national stage in recent years. Clare were the last team outside that trio to reach a league final back in 2014 and at All-Ireland level it was 2023 runners-up Waterford who last year broke the top three stranglehold on final appearances which had dated all the way back to Wexford's 2012 triumph.

But with Tipperary putting themselves in the conversation having been on the fringes of the top three teams in recent years, nine-time All-Ireland winner Murray told RTÉ 2fm's Game On that their feat would be a boost for the camogie scene as a whole.

"We've had these conversations for I don't know how many years now in regard to the top three and wishing and willing somebody to go and break into the top three," she said.

"Certainly we've been chatting about Tipperary a good bit over the last couple of years and that semi-final glass ceiling that they just can't seem to break with regards to the championship.

"They've certainly broken it now in the league which can only be a positive for looking to the championship.
