GAA: Memory match.

Munster final 1993 Tipp 3-27 Clare 2-12

A DISASTER for Clare, who having beaten Cork in the semi-final, were swept aside by a rampant Tipp side. Pat Fox and Nicky English (left) combine to dismantle Clare.

But there was revenge for Clare a year later when they beat Tipp 2-11 to 0-13 in the Munster quarter-final.

All-Ireland final 1997 Clare 0-20 Tipp 2-13

A GREAT day for Clare who beat a Tipperary team which had reached the All-Ireland final, via the back door, after losing 1-18 to 0-18 Ger Loughnane's side in the Munster final.

Incredibly John Leahy, who missed a late goal chance in that Munster final is presented with another last gasp chance in the All-Ireland but Davy Fitzgerald produces a great save.

It marks Clare's second All-Ireland win in two years.

Munster semi 1999 Clare 2-12 Tipp 0-18

A LATE goal from a penalty by Davy Fitzgerald (left) earned Clare a replay when it looked as if Tipperary would end the Banner's reign as Munster champions.

In the replay it was all very easy for Clare who led by 1-12 to 0-8 at half-time en route to a comfortable 1-21 to 1-11 win.

Munster semi 2000 Tipp 2-19 Clare 1-14

THIS was Tipperary's first win over Clare since 1993 and the significance of the result was there for all to see as Ger Loughnane quit as Clare manager a few weeks later.

Things didn't get much better for the Banner as Tipperary edged home 0-15 to 0-14 in another Munster semi-final a year later in a thrilling contest.

But there was some bad news for Tipp as they lost All-Star forward John Leahy with a serious knee injury.

EOIN KELLY scored 1-8 for Tipperary in last year's Munster quarter-final success.

David Forde countered with 2-0 for Clare but it wasn't enough to stop from recording their third successive championship win over the Banner.
