By Michael Dundon for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Éire Óg, Nenagh 1-15 Drom-Inch 2-11

Éire Óg, Nenagh sensationally defeated championship favourites Drom-Inch in a thrilling SHC quarter-final at Templemore on Saturday. Paddy Murphy’s third minute goal gave Nenagh a dream platform and, with Murphy and Johnny Brennan leading the way, Éire Óg led 1-8 to 0-6 at the interval and were six points clear at the three quarter stage.

Seamus Callanan inspired a Drom-Inch rally with a 48th minute goal and two points to leave them only one behind with 11 minutes to play. In an exciting finish, Mikey Heffernan and Paddy Murphy had points to calm Nenagh nerves and Richie Flannery put them four clear entering injury-time. With almost the last puck of the game, David Butler doubled overhead for a Drom goal, but time ran out on them.

Killenaule fought back with underage star John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer hitting four points. Pat Kerwick’s 47th-minute goal edged them 1-13 to 2-9 ahead, but then came the Loughmore fightback.

Clean Ireland Recycling Tipperary SHC Q-Final – Clonoulty-Rossmore 1-11 Kildangan 0-14 – Match Report

Hammersley saves Clonoulty

By Michael Dundon for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Clonoulty-Rossmore 1-11 Kildangan 0-14

A last minute pointed free by Timmy Hammersley earned 14 man Clonoulty-Rossmore a replay in yesterday’s Tipperary SHC quarter-final against Kildangan at The Ragg. Wind-aided Clonoulty were well on top, but erratic shooting cost them scores. John O’Neill had an 11th minute goal from a 20 metre free as they forged an interval lead of 1-6 to 0-4 but lost wingback James Heffernan to a red card on the stroke of half-time. Kildangan, helped by three Tadgh Gallagher points, drew level with 12 minutes to go. Hammersley restored Clonoulty’s lead but a brace of Ruairi Gleeson points had Kildangan ahead with time running out. As the game headed towards stoppage time, Clonoulty’s Fiachra O’Keeffe was fouled and Hammersley pointed his sixth free of the day to earn Clonoulty a second chance.

CLONOULTY-ROSSMORE: D O Dwyer; Joey O Keeffe, J Devane, K Horan; J Heffernan, J O Keeffe, P Heffernan; P White, C Hammersley(0-2); S Maher, T Butler, A White; T Hammersley(0-6), J O Neill(1-1), F O Keeffe(0-2)

By Michael Dundon for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Borris-Ileigh 2-16 Éire Óg Annacarty 1-11

County man Brendan Maher was the star turn as Borris-Ileigh booked their place in the Tipperary SHC semi-finals with yesterday’s win over Éire Óg, Annacarty, at The Ragg. Maher scored 12 points and looked a class apart as Borris grabbed two first-half goals against the strong wind to trail by 2-3 to 0-10 at the interval. Conor Kenny and Keith Ryan were the marksmen. With Maher deadly accurate, Borris ran into an eight points lead by the three quarter stage (2-12 to 0-10) but a Conor O’Brien goal in the 47th minute, followed immediately by a Paudie O’Dwyer point raised Éire Óg hopes. However, Maher added four further points in the closing minutes for a comfortable win for Borris.
