Mayo have beaten Tipperary 5-20 to 3-13 to book their place in the All-Ireland final against Dublin in two weeks.

Mayo forward Cillian O'Connor managed to score 4-6 overall, and set up another goal for his brother Diarmuid O'Connor near the end of the first half.

Tipperary could have been well ahead early on as Michael Quinlivan was one on one with the Mayo keeper, and he managed to save it.

Conor Sweeney also had a goal chance but once again it was David Clarke who came to the rescue for Mayo.

Tipp were made to rue their missed chances as Mayo went on a scoring spree. They kept turning over the team in blue and gold on halfway and converting it into points.

The premier county did manage to score two goals in the second half, but it just was not enough as Mayo won by 13 points in the end.

Elsewhere in GAA action, Cork beat Galway on a scoreline of 2-17 to 13 points at Croke Park earlier this afternoon in the TG4 All-Ireand Ladies Football Championship semi-final.
