GAA Hurling All Ireland Senior Championship
Semi- Final Result:
Tipperary 6-19 2-7 Limerick
Tipperary will face Kilkenny in this year’s All Ireland Final after destroying a poor Limerick side in the semi-final at Croke Park on Sunday.
Tipperary had three goals scored before patrons could get comfortable in their seats, and utterly dominated their neighbors in a very one-sided game.
Lar Corbett was in goal scoring form for the men in blue and gold, and bagged three goals and one point.
In the end Limerick lost by 24 points, and the Shannosiders will have a long winter ahead of them after this painful defeat.
For Tipperary, it is a date in the final against the three-time defending All Ireland champions on Sunday September 6.
