David Clifford produced more magic at Croke Park this afternoon as Kerry crushed Tyrone with a 2-18 to 0-12 victory to move into the All-Ireland SFC semi-finals.

Sean O’Shea’s goal in the 58th minute (see it below) sealed the deal for the All-Ireland champions and came off the back of a sensational kick pass from David Clifford to find Tony Brosnan who set-up the Kenmare sharpshooter in front of goal.

Jack O’Connor’s men had led by 0-9 to 0-6 at the halfway stage, shooting over the last three scores of the first-half after this classy effort from Ruairi Canavan had brought the Red Hands level on 0-6 apiece.

The Kingdom bossed their Ulster counterparts after the turnaround, firing 1-5 unanswered during the third quarter that included a calmly taken goal from ‘Man of the Match’ Diarmuid O’Connor on 52 minutes.

O’Shea's close range strike helped round off the Munster champions’ best performance of their season some six minutes later, as they showed Tyrone the exit door and made their way into tomorrow evening’s semi-final draw.
