Limerick 2-9 Tipperary 1-9
Report from the Irish Examiner newspaper
Limerick just edged past Tipperary in this Munster MFC quarter-final.
Limerick led from the 14th minute to the final whistle to book their place in the semi-final away to Clare on July 30.
A goal in either half from Marc Nolan and Ruairi Cronin were vital to the home side in the LIT Gaelic Grounds.
Tipperary were ahead on five minutes when Diarmuid O’Riordan had the ball in the net but points from Darragh Murray and Conall O’Duinn had Limerick in front, 0-4 to 1-0 close to the mid-point of the opening half.
By half-time it was a 1-6 to 1-3 lead with a late Jack Somers point ensuring a goal was between the teams at the break.
Tipperary points from Darragh McVicker and substitute Fionn Fitzgerald reduced the deficit but just on the second half water break Cronin had the second Limerick goal to increase the lead out to five points.
McVicker, Craddock and Smith had points in a late Tipperary rally but Limerick held on.
