Eight teams remain in contention for All-Ireland glory after last weekend’s busy schedule. The main event was the 120th playing of the Munster Hurling Final. Considering the importance of Thurles to the GAA, it was probably fitting that the home county Tipperary landed the spoils.
Shortly after the GAA was founded 125 years ago, the universities started putting out hurling and Gaelic football teams and competing against each other. These intervarsity competitions were put on a formal basis with the presentation of the Sigerson Cup for football in 1911, the Fitzgibbon Cup for hurling in 1912, and the Ashbourne Cup for camogie in 1915. Involvement in the GAA in third level institutions was a help to many students in adapting to a new life away from their homes and local clubs. It gave them a common interest with fellow students and helped the process of integration into a more diverse community.
