SFC round-up: Tipp and Clare through

Premier and Banner into Munster semis

Tipperary and Clare progressed to the last four of the Munster Senior Football Championship, while there were victories elsewhere for Mayo and Cavan.

Tipperary recorded a 1-15 to 1-7 triumph over Waterford at Fraher Field

The visitors had led by just two points at the break but pulled away in the second period, finding the net a little over 20 minutes from time, with Michael Quinlivan claiming the goal.

Paul Whyte hit back with a Waterford goal but it proved to be no more than a consolation effort.

The Premier troops' reward for defeating the Deise is a Munster semi-final meeting with Cork.

Earlier in the day, Clare secured a 0-16 to 0-13 victory over Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds.

The Banner struggled for much of the turgid affair, although they had nine different scorers on the day, with Jamie Malone (0-3) at the top of the pile.

Clare's victory sets up a provincial semi-final clash with Kerry in Killarney next month.

In Ulster, Cavan defeated Armagh by 2-16 to 0-14 at Breffni Park.

Dara McVeety netted at the end of a fine move from the hosts during the first period, before Martin Reilly's successful second-half penalty kick helped Cavan to secure a dominant position.

Armagh had a penalty of their own but Stefan Campbell's strike was saved by Raymond Galligan, allowing Cavan to see out the game without much further difficulty.

Cavan go on to face Tyrone at St Tiernach's Park on 19 June to battle over a place in the Ulster final.

In the Connacht Championship, Mayo made relatively light work of their trip to London, beating the hosts at Ruislip by 2-16 to 0-9.

First-half goals from Conor Loftus and Jason Doherty did much of the damage, as the provincial champions avoided a potential banana skin in the United Kingdom's capital.

Mayo will meet Galway at McHale Park in the Connacht semi-finals.
