A DAY OF Gaelic football shocks and landmark victories has ended with the 2020 All-Ireland senior football semi-final line-up quite incredibly replicating that of the 1920 championship.

Last night the GAA staged their emotional and fitting Bloody Sunday commemorations at Croke Park while today it was an afternoon of celebrations on the pitch as Tipperary and Cavan won the Munster and Ulster finals respectively.

Tipperary defeated Cork by 0-17 to 0-13 for a first Munster crown since 1935 while Cavan ended their Ulster wait for glory that had stretched back to 1997 when they defeated Donegal by 1-13 to 0-12.

That sets up semi-final ties with Cavan taking on Dublin and Tipperary will play Mayo on the weekend of 5-6 December.

Here’s the fixture details.
