The joyous reaction to Clare's first championship win over Tipperary in Thurles in 90 years

Clare overcame an eight-point deficit to come back and claim their first championship win over Tipperary at Thurles in 90 years on Sunday.

Clare were trailing by one point heading into the final few minutes before Podge Collins scored to tie the game up with Peter Duggan then tagging on two more scores to seal the historic win.

Clare players were immediately mobbed by backroom team members and supporters as they celebrated their first win over Tipperary in nearly a century.

After the game Duggan praised his side's heart to claw their way back into the contest and he also thanked the travelling Clare for their support at the match.

"It took us a while to get going but during a good few stages in the game Tipp were well on top of us," Duggan told RTE Sport after the match.

"It shows the heart that's in this team that we still came back. We dug deep. Every time they got a score we dug deep and we came back.

"It's brilliant to get a result. It's the first time in a long time we've got a result down below in Tipp and you can just see here the amount of people.

"Clare haven't travelled greatly over the last couple of weeks and the last few years since 2013 [Clare All-Ireland SHC win] and it showed with the crowd that came out here today. It really helped us.

"To hear the Banner roar for the first time in a long time really helped us drive on in this game."
