Tipperary book semi-final berth after Dublin win


Tipperary booked an Allianz Hurling League semi-final clash with Limerick after a comfortable 2-25 0-20 win against Pat Gilroy's Dublin at Croke Park.

The contest had been rescheduled after last weekend's poor weather and the switch of venue from Parnell Park to HQ.

It was a scoreline that bore no resemblance to the way the Dubs came out the blocks, scoring five points in the opening five minutes as they unexpectedly opened up a 0-10 0-2 lead.

But by half-time strong favourites Premier had not only woken up, but had edged ahead themselves 1-15 0-14 with John McGrath giving them the lead pouncing on a breaking ball to fire past Alan Nolan.

Despite Ronan Maher receiving a second yellow just before the break, 14-man Tipp dominated and Michael Breen ensured there would be no Dubs comeback finding the net to extend the lead to ten points.

Padraic Maher told Sport TG4 that losing brother Ronan to a second yellow card proved a turning point: "We're delighted particularly after a very poor start. They went eight scores up but we showed good fight to come back into it.

"To be fair, after the start we got we realised ourselves in the field that we had to get the finger out, but Ronan being sent-off helped focus our minds and we showed great battle and heart in second half."

Dublin, who were without their Cuala contingent, can now focus on their Leinster championship opener against Kilkenny on 13 May.
