Tommy Murphy Cup – Quarterfinals – Short Report
Leitrim v Tipperary
Sat 29th July, Semple Stadium, Thurles
Leitrim are through to the Tommy Murphy Semis on Aug 12th after a comprehensive win over Tipperary. Leitrim played the better football throughout and were leading 0-8 to 0-3 points just before half time when Tipperary came back and scored a goal to make it 0-8 to 1-3.
In the second half Leitrim maintained their lead and ran out eventual winners with a 5 point advantage. This win is much welcomed by all after the recent heartbreak of losing to Mayo and Sligo by 1 point in each game in the All Ireland Series.
Carlow and London play tomorrow and the winners will play Leitirm on August 12th, the time and venue will be announced at a later date.
Final score: Leitrim 0-14 Tipperary 1-06
