THURLES CBS BOOKED their place in the Dr Harty Cup semi-finals with a one-point win against Gaelcholáiste Mhuire of Cork.
Playing with a strong wind in the first half in Kilmallock, Gaelcholáiste Mhuire led by 0-5 before the Tipp school hit back with goals from Jack Butler and Billy McCarthy.
Thurles led by 2-4 to 0-7 at the break and were nearly made to pay for some wasteful shooting which saw them score only four points in the second half, but they held on for a 2-8 to 1-10 win.
In Leinster, colleges football champions Coláiste Eoin were knocked out by St Mary’s Edenderry after an extra-time thriller.
