John 'Bubbles' O'Dwyer and Michael Quinlivan to meet in Tipperary football final

It’s Killenaule versus Clonmel Commercials in the Tipperary SFC decider.

2015 MUNSTER CHAMPIONS Clonmel Commercials dethroned reigning champions Loughmore-Castleiney in the Tipperary SFC semi-finals at Leahy Park today.

Michael Quinlivan and Commercials edged a close-fought game against Loughmore-Castleiney, who had the McGrath brothers Noel and John in their side.

Clonmel ran out narrow 1-9 to 1-6 winners to seal their first county final in two years.

Clonmel will meet John O’Dwyer’s Killenaule in the final after the latter enjoyed a 2-16 to 1-18 extra-time win over Moyle Rovers in the other last four clash.

Killenaule led by 2-8 to 1-7 after a rip-roaring opening half, but the sides finished level on 2-11 to 1-14 after the regulation 60 minutes. That sent the tie to extra-time, where O’Dwyer’s side did just about enough to seal the win.

Killenaule will now compete in the club’s first ever county senior football final later this month.
