The draws for the 2020 provincial championships took place this morning and in Munster, Tipperary have been paired with Clare.

New manager David Power was handed a tough draw this morning in the 2020 Munster championship as his charges have been paired with the Banner county. The sides met in the final game of this year’s Allianz national football league with Clare emerging as winners, 3-15 to 1-19, a result that condemned the Premier to division 3 football for next year. Indeed, in 2018 the sides drew in Ennis in the league, 0-11 apiece, and this ultimately cost Tipperary promotion to division 1 for the first time in their history. The competitive nature of these games provide ample evidence that Tipperary will have to be at their best if they are going to proceed to the next round.

The full draw is as follows:

Quarter final 1 – Waterford v Limerick

Quarter final 2 – Clare v Tipperary

Semi-finals – Winner of quarter final 1 v Winner of quarter-final 2

                           Cork v Kerry
