Here's the wrap on all your Tipperary hurling

Thurles Sarsfields will meet Borris-Ileigh in Tipp final for first time since 1955.

Borris-Ileigh 1-16 - Drom-Inch 1-12

Tipp forward Dan McCormack scored an injury-time goal for Borris-Ileigh, as they held off a late rally by Seamus Callanan’s Drom-Inch to progress to their first final in 29 years, 1-16 to 1-12.

With Tipp’s Brendan Maher outstanding and former county star Paddy Stapleton marshalling Callanan well, Borris looked well clear when they led by seven points with eight minutes left.

But a string of Drom-Inch points cut the gap to one in injury-time before McCormack sealed it.

Joey Maher had Drom’s early goal.

All-Ireland champions in 1987, the win ends Borris-Ileigh’s long wait for another Tipp final.
