Clonmel Commercials 1-16

Loughmore Castleiney 1-15

Jack Kennedy is the toast of Clonmel tonight after his last-gasp point secured Commericials back-to-back Tipperary SFC successes.

Heading into injury-time, Kennedy held his nerve to split the posts from distance and clinch a hard-fought victory over Loughmore-Castleiney at Semple Stadium. 

It was another devastating defeat for Loughmore, who lost the county SHC final to Kiladangan in similar circumstances at the same venue last weekend.

Conor McGrath's goal had helped Loughmore come from 0-13 to 0-7 down at half-time to get on level terms. Michael Quinlivan then found the back of the net for Commericials before Kennedy snatched the winner.
