Tipp are aiming to emulate the exploits of Cork and Kilkenny in the coming season by putting back to back All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship titles together, except in 2011 they want to add a provincial crown along the way.
That’s the view of 2010 All Ireland winning captain Eoin Kelly.

A Season of Sundays 2010.
Now in it’s 14th year it was launched in Dublin by GAA President Christy Cooney,
and hosted in George’s Quay by new sponsor, Ulster Bank.
The book has become an institution and embraces the heart and soul of Ireland’s national games as captured by the award winning team of photographers at the Sportsfile photographic agency.
A Season of Sundays is an album of memories and impressions from the 2010 GAA season which takes us back to those weekends throughout the summer which captured the attention of so many GAA fans and communities throughout the country.
The book illustrates all the GAA moments and talking points of the season from Tipperary’s incredible arrival at the summit, Cork’s long ascent, the form of Bernard Brogan and ‘that goal’ from Joe Sheridan in the Leinster Football Final, which the book’s creator, Ray McManus from Sportsfile, so aptly describes: “For all the hundreds of times that Meath’s extra-time goal against Louth has been recycled in slow motion nothing better defines the moment than one still picture. Joe Sheridan on the line; Louth defenders in a diagonal line of despair; Meathmen arriving like the cavalry; one impassive umpire.”
Commenting on the book, Senan Murphy from Ulster Bank said: “As a sponsor of the GAA Football Championship as well as the Ulster Bank Sigerson Cup and Ulster Bank Fitzgibbon Cup, we are very proud of our involvement with the GAA. We are now also delighted to sponsor this wonderful book which helps us all to relive the special memories we have of our national games played throughout the year”.
