Micheál Donoghue’s Dublin will be looking to bounce back from defeat on the opening weekend at home to Tipperary in our second Allianz Hurling League fixture away to Antrim in Belfast this Sunday (1.45pm). 

Despite Brian Hayes opening the scoring, it was the only time Dublin had the lead, as Tipperary took control of the game soon after Dublin’s bright start.

Cian O’Sullivan and Conor Burke helped stem the Tipperary tide that swept across Parnell Park; however, we would ultimately go into the break eight points down. 

Dublin looked revitalised after the break as O’Sullivan and Diarmaid Ó Dúlaing closed the gap between us and Tipperary. 

Tipp would then disrupt the Dublin resurgence when Sean Ryan found the net for the visitors.

Fergal Whitely responded for the Dubs as O’Sullivan pointed a handful of frees before Jake Morris got Tipperary’s second goal of the afternoon, which put the game out of Dublin’s reach.
