Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship 2006


Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship 2006

The Tipperary Senior Hurling Club Championship (known for sponsorship reasons as the Cidona Tipperary Senior Hurling Club Championship) is an annual club competition between the top Tipperary clubs. The winners of the Tipperary Championship qualify to represent their county in the Munster Club Championship and in turn, go on to the All-Ireland Senior Club Hurling Championship. The Tipperary County Champions in 2006 are Toomevara who became champions with a win over Nenagh Éire Óg. The Tipperary senior hurling championship is probably the most complicated system in Ireland as it strives to accommodate 25 teams. A knockout divisional system and group backdoor system has been introduced to accommodate these teams. Before the new system, the county championship was run on a divisional basis with the teams in the divisional finals going into the county quarter-finals and proceeding from there. It may not be long before this system is re-introduced because of the complexity of the current championship.
