Tipp footballers shock Cork in Thurles


Tipperary secured a first senior football championship win over Cork since 1944 with a stunning 3-15 to 2-16 victory at Semple Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Kevin O’Halloran slotted over two late points to set up a Muster final against Kerry on 3 July, after Cork had clawed back a nine-point deficit with eight minutes remaining to go level.

Tipperary went into the break 2-7 to 0-6 up thanks to goals from Conor Sweeney and Michael Quinlivan. Mark Collins pulled one goal back for the Rebels before Brian Fox stuck Tipperary’s third goal with nine minutes remaining.

Collins struck a second goal of the afternoon as Cork roared back, before Portroe forward O’Halloran settled matters in Thurles with his late brace.

Munster champions Kerry netted two goals in the first four minutes to ease past Clare 2-23 to 0-17 in the other semi-final at Fitzgerald Stadium.

Westmeath set up a Leinster SFC semi-final showdown with Kildare with a 0-13 to 0-12 victory over Offaly at Cusack Park.

Kieran Martin, who scored a crucial point for the Lakesiders late in the second half as Offaly recovered after a poor first half, left the pitch covered in blood after receiving a facial injury following the final whistle.

Mickey Newman scored seven points in Meath's 0-20 to 1-13 victory over Louth in front of an capacity crowd of 8,500 at Parnell Park to set up a Leinster semi-final clash with All-Ireland title favourites Dublin.

Earlier, 14-man Donegal held off a determined Fermanagh fightback at Ballbofey to win the Ulster SFC quarter final 2-12 to 0-11.

Odhran MacNiallais found the net either side of the break as Donegal set up an Ulster semi-final date with Monaghan, despite losing Niall McGee to a straight red card right just before half-time.

Roscommon are through to the Connacht final after a 4-16 to 2-13 semi-final win over Sligo at Dr Hyde Park. The Rossies, who came back after going eight points down, will meet champions Mayo or Galway in the final.
