Waterford 2-18 Dublin 0-19

Report from thescore.ie

CAPTAIN SHANE RYAN fired home two goals to help Waterford defeat Dublin in today’s Electric Ireland All-Ireland minor hurling quarter-final in Thurles. Waterford bounced back from last Tuesday’s Munster final replay loss to Limerick with De La Salle club man Ryan crucially raising a green flag in each half. Patrick Curran, Shane Bennett, Peter Hogan and Cormac Curran all impressed in the scoring stakes as well for the Deise youngsters as they set up an All-Ireland semi-final meeting with Kilkenny on August 10th.

Dublin saw their season draw to a close. After defeat in the Leinster final, they had good performances today from Shane Barrett, Rian McBride, Con O’Callaghan and Chris Bennett but their failure to hit the net cost them in the end. Waterford were in front by 1-8 to 0-8 at the interval with Ryan’s finish to the net in the 14th minute propelling them into the lead. That score helped them go 1-4 to 0-2 in front although the accuracy of Bennett kept Dublin in touch as they cut the gap by the interval.

There was a burst of scores from both sides after the break and Dublin trimmed the deficit to two points on a couple of occasions. But the crucial score arrived when Ryan broke through for his second goal of the match in the 42nd minute after being set up by Colm Roche. That pushed Waterford into a 2-12 to 0-13 lead but Dublin admirably fought back. Substitute Sean Gray made a decent impression and they were only 2-16 to 0-19 adrift in the closing stages. But Waterford finished strongly to secure the spoils thanks to points from Hogan and Bennett.

Scorers for Waterford: Shane Ryan 2-1, Patrick Curran (3f) & Shane Bennett (1 sl) 0-4 each, Cormac Curran & Peter Hogan 0-3 each, Darragh Lyons 0-2, Colm Roche 0-1.

Scorers for Dublin: Chris Bennett 0-8 (6f), Con O’Callaghan, Tom Fox, Eoin O’Conghaile & Sean Gray (1 65), 0-2 each, Rian McBride, Eoghan McHugh & Sean Ryan 0-1 each.

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final – Tipperary 2-23 Dublin 0-16

Tipperary defeated Dublin by 2-23 to 0-16 in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final on Sunday July 27th at Semple Stadium Thurles.


SHC Quarter-Final: Tipperary too good for Dublin

GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Quarter-Final: Tipperary 2-23 Dublin 0-16

Report from GAA.ie

Tipperary advanced to an All-Ireland semi-final meeting with arch rivals Cork after seeing off the disappointing challenge from Dublin at Semple Stadium in Thurles to ease their way to a 2-23 to 0-16 victory. It turned out to be a one-sided encounter with Tipperary opening up an interval lead of 0-15 to 0-8 and they wrapped it up in the second-half with John O’Dwyer firing home two goals for Eamon O’Shea’s men.

Dublin only led once in the game and that was when Danny Sutcliffe hit the opening score in the first minute. Lar Corbett got Tipperary moving with two sublime points in the opening five minutes with his only two scores of the game, but by the interval all Tipperary’s forwards had found their range and the game was slipping away from Dublin.

Seamus Callanan, who produced another superb display, put Tipp ahead by two goals when he pointed a ’65’ after 22 minutes to make it 0-10 to 0-4 before Dublin rallied with points from Alan McCrabbe and Johnny McCaffrey. But Tipperary finished the half with a flourish with John O’Dwyer, Noel McGrath and Gearóid Ryan finding their range to leave them seven points up at the break.

Dublin, now with the wind, needed a strong start to the second-half but it was Tipp who got it when Ryan pointed. McCrabbe pulled back a free for Dublin and after a brace from Callanan which left Tipp nine to the good, Anthony Daly’s men hit their best spell with a couple of points from Paul Ryan. But he had a penalty saved by Brendan Maher, and while Conal Keaney pointed the rebound to reduce the margin to six after 50 minutes, the game ended as a contest when James Woodlock and Callanan combined to set up O’Dwyer for his first goal.

Both sides emptied their benches at that stage but Tipp kept pulling further ahead and O’Dywer got his second goal after 64 minutes when an effort from Patrick Maher was saved by Alan Nolan but the rebound fell kindly for him and he sealed a facile win which has left Daly pondering his Dublin future.

“I’m a good while there now. I don’t know. We would have to give it long, hard thought. I suppose everyone involved in that dressing-room will be thinking about that,” said the Dublin manager afterwards. “We won’t make decisions like that now. We’ll take a few weeks now to clear the head and think about things and evaluate the situation.”

Scorers for Tipperary: S Callanan 0-11 (7f, 2 ‘65), J O’Dywer 2-2 (0-1f), G Ryan 0-3, L Corbett 0-2, S McGrath 0-1, Patrick Maher 0-1, J Woodlock 0-1, N McGrath 0-1, S Bourke 0-1.

SHC Quarter-Final: Limerick destroy Wexford

GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Quarter-Final: Limerick 4-26 Wexford 1-11

Report by Jackie Cahill for GAA.ie

TJ Ryan’s Limerick hammered Wexford by 24 points in this afternoon’s All-Ireland senior hurling championship quarter-final at Semple Stadium.
The Shannonsiders ran riot against a fatigued Wexford team playing for the fourth successive weekend in the championship. Limerick forward Shane Dowling, one of the plus points to emerge from the recent Munster final defeat to Cork, helped himself to a personal haul of 2-8, including 2-3 from play.

Limerick’s massive win sends them through to a second successive All-Ireland semi-final and in a fortnight’s time, when the Treaty men will lock horns with Leinster champions Kilkenny. Having taken out All-Ireland champions Clare and Waterford in their previous outings, Wexford travelled to Thurles with high hopes and in big numbers. But their dreams were dashed by a clinical Limerick, who could even afford the luxury of shooting 16 wides.

Wexford were simply blown away and their afternoon ended on a sour note when full-back Matthew O’Hanlon was sent off in stoppage time for a challenge on Dowling. By half-time, this tie was effectively over as a contest as Limerick had opened up a 3-15 to 0-8 lead.

David Breen, excellent for Limerick, scored Limerick’s first goal in the 28th minute before Dowling netted twice in first half stoppage time. Dowling’s brace sucked any remaining life out of Wexford and the second half was a procession as the game petered out to an inevitable conclusion. Limerick continued to pile on the misery as midfielder Paul Browne charged through the heart of the Wexford defence to blast home a 37th minute goal.
