Note: Scores in GAA given in Goals-Points, a Goal being worth 3 Points. Thus Limerick 2-26 Tipperary 2-14 works out as 32 points to 20 in Limerick’s favour.


Tipperary were GAA All-Ireland Hurling Champions in 2019, taking the Liam McCarthy Cup back to the Premier County by defeating Kilkenny by 14 points (3-25 to 0-20). They had earlier won the League Stage of the Munster Hurling Championship by winning all four games before losing to Limerick in the Munster Final, thus leaving them in the All-Ireland Quarter-Finals, where they defeated Laois by 10 points (2-25 to 1-18) and then Wexford by 2 points in the All-Ireland Semi-Finals (1-28 to 3-20).

Kilkenny had come through an extremely competitive Leinster Championship with Dublin’s shock win over Galway on the last day of the League stage leaving four counties on five points each. Having to be separated by Points Difference Dublin as the third placed county went into the All-Ireland Preliminary Quarter-Finals with the Munster 3rd Place county and the Joe McDonagh Cup winners and Runners-Up. Kilkenny won the league stage of the Leinster Championship but were defeated by Wexford in the Leinster Championship final, thus leaving them a difficult match against Cork, who had to qualify via the Joe McDonagh Cup (All-Ireland Division 2 Championship). Having knocked out Cork, Kilkenny then triumphed by four points over Limerick in the All-Ireland Semi-Finals.
