Tipp crush Waterford in Munster final

John McGrath and Seamus Callanan were superb as Tipperary crushed Waterford by 5-19 to 0-13 in the Munster SHC final at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick.

The Premier pair bagged a stunning 4-13 between them as they helped Tipp annihilate a desperately disappointing Deise.

While Tipperary were favourites before the game, the contest was expected to be a close one but instead Waterford were hammered by the same margin as they lost the 2011 provincial decider to the same opponents.

This was Waterford's fifth Munster loss to Tipp on-the-spin and this is one which they sill struggle to recover as they face Wexford in the quarter-finals on July 24th.

Tipperary however, will not care as they delivered a real statement of intent with the most clinical display of the summer and they advance to the All-Ireland semi-final on 14th August.

McGrath was outstanding throughout and grabbed the first treble in a Munster final since 2011, his goals coming in the ninth, 41st and 48th minutes.

McGrath also added two points as he produced a magnificent individual performance.

Tipp only led by 1-07 to 0-08 at the break but they demolished Derek McGrath's side in the second period, outscoring them by a whopping 4-12 to 0-05.

Just three players got onto the scoreboard for Waterford and they will struggle to shake off the affects of this pummeling by an imperious Tipp side who will be confident of bringing the Liam McCarthy home in September.

Antrim are Ulster champions after they saw off the brave challenge of Armagh in a thrilling encounter by a score of 6-21 to 4-14.

The victory means Antrim retained the provincial crown for the 14th time on-the-spin.

However, the game remained in the balance until the latter stages when Antrim surged to victory, outscoring their opponents by 2-05 to 0-02 in the final quarter of an hour.

The title gave Antrim an uplifting end to their season after missing out on promotion as well as losing the Christy Ring Cup final replay to Meath.
