An inspiring performance from Joe Canning helped Galway ease past Offaly 0-33 to 1-11 in the SHC Leinster semi-final at O’Moore Park in Portlaoise.
Seven points from the 28-year-old proved instrumental for the reigning league champions, who led 0-16 to 1-06 at the interval, despite an early strike from Oisin Kelly.
Canning registered five points in the first-half, leaving team-mate Conor Whelan to fire home seven points after the break to complete a free-flowing performance from the Tribesmen.
Galway, who have captured just one Leinster title in 2012, will face a tough test when they meet Davy Fitzgerald's Wexford at Croke Park in the final.
While Cork built on their surprise win over Tipperary with a 0-23 to 1-15 victory over Waterford at the Semple Stadium to book their spot in the SHC Munster final.
Cork were reduced to 14 in the 62nd minute when Colm Spillane received a second yellow, although the result at the time never looked in question as the Rebels ran out winners by five points, with Patrick Horgan bagging 10 scores.
Tipp, who could have been beaten by larger tally only for some impressive saves from Stephen O’Keeffe, struggled at times throughout, with Hurler of the Year Austin Gleeson failing to have a real impact.
Tipp drop back into the qualifiers, while Cork set up a mouth-watering clash with Clare on July 9 in Croke Park.
