Tipperary edge Derry in Breffni Park thriller

Tipperary scored three points in injury time to defeat Derry by one point in the All-Ireland SFC Round 4A Qualifier at Breffni Park.

Tipp will meet Galway in the All-Ireland quarter-finals at Croke Park on 31 July after edging a thriller in Cavan by 1-21 to 2-17, thanks to a late Kevin O'Halloran free and two last-gasp points by Conor Sweeney.

Tipp led by 0-7 to 0-3 after 19 minutes, but were outscored by 1-5 to one point over the following 16 minutes, with Mark Lynch netting the goal for the Oak Leaf County with a half volley into the top corner of the net following good build-up play by Daniel Heavron.

But Tipp reduced the half time lead to just one point as Kevin O'Halloran kicked an injury-time free and Michael Quinlivan a point from open play, though manager Liam Kearns will be unhappy that referee Marty Duffy ignored what seemed to be a penalty foul on Philip Austin as he played advantage, before going back to award the free O'Halloran kicked over.

The turning point for Tipp came 13 minutes into the second half, with the scores level at Derry 1-10 to 0-13. There seemed little danger as Derry's Thomas Mallon went to kick the ball clear, but the Loup goalkeeper slipped as he kicked, presenting O’Halloran with an open goal.

And the Premier County seemed well in charge with ten minutes remaining, leading 1-18 to 1-13 following Bill Maher's point.

But Derry roared backed, and led on 66 minutes as substitute Eoghan Brown touched the ball into the Tipp net to give his side a 2-16 to 1-18 lead.

There was to be another twist as, in a frenetic five minutes of injury-time, O'Halloran converted a free, then Sweeney scored two late points to send Tipp into the last eight.
