SÉAMUS CALLANAN’S DROM & Inch have advanced to the quarter-final stage of the Tipperary SHC following a four-point win over JK Brackens on Sunday.

The All-Ireland winning captain featured as his side finished with 14 men after Johnny Ryan was sent off in the first minute of the opening half.

They also conceded a goal later in the half when Lyndon Fairbrother converted a penalty to leave the scoreline reading 1-2 to 0-5.

But it was Drom & Inch who came away as 2-16 to 1-15 winners with goals coming from David Butler and a David Collins penalty.

They join Thurles Sarsfields who booked their place in the quarter-finals after a win over Loughmore/Castleiney on Friday.

Elsewhere in the Tipperary SHC, Kildangan defeated Roscrea by 2-19 to 0-14, Holycross Ballycahill were 0-23 to 1-18 winners over Éire Óg Annacarty/Donohill and Clonoulty Rossmore overcame Nenagh by 1-22 to 1-16.

In Cork, last year’s semi-finalists St Finbarr’s crashed out of the senior hurling championship after losing out to Na Piarsaigh.

Evan Sheehan finished with a tally of 0-9, including seven frees, while Shane Forde pocketed 2-2 to help Na Piarsaigh on their way to a 2-23 to 0-17 win. The result means St Finbarr’s cannot progress to the knockout stages of the competition.
