There are two different types of irrigation usually considered in a tunnel
Feeds the plants from dripper lines lying on the ground next to the plants. Positive effects of the dripper lines is your water management and wastage is held to the minimum. Negative effect is that the line needs to be removed during the off season soil preparation, usually requires additional labor.
This method entails sprinklers being hung above your crop and irrigate the plants using a sprinkler system. This is normally used for low growing crops like lettuce and spinach. Positive effects of this method is that the system is installed once and does not need to be removed at all during soil preparation. The negative effects is the fact that you do not use all of your water for the tunnel to the max, as there will be over spray in areas the plant roots can’t reach. The overhead sprinkler system also doesn’t work effectively on produce that has a wine and needs creep to the top of the tunnel to produce tomatoes as an example.
