Tipperary club championships continue to progress through the knockout phases.
Senior Club Hurling Championship
The talking point of the quarter-finals was the defeat of Borris-Ileigh. Surprisingly, the 2019 winners fell to Drom and Inch. They were outscored by 4-19 to 1-28 on Sunday. This sends Drom and Inch through to a semi-final with Kiladangan. Kiladangan overcame Toomevara on Saturday. This semi-final goes ahead on Sunday the 6th at 5.30pm.
Loughmore-Castleiney and Nenagh Éire Óg face off in the other semi-final. Loughmore-Castleiney earned their semi-final spot by beating Clonoulty-Rossmore. A seven-point win in Thurles will have them full of confidence.
Yet, their opponents ran riot against Thurles Sarsfields to lay down a marker. Winning 3-12 to 1-08, they have proven themselves a force to be reckoned with. The teams return to Semple Stadium at 5.30 on Saturday.
Contrastingly, the relegation final is Burgess and Éire Óg Annacarty/Donohill. They have another week to prepare before their 12th of September game.
