LOUGHMORE-CASTLEINEY LOST their grip on the Clean Ireland Recycling Tipperary senior football championship title today.

Noel McGrath’s club lost by 1-7 to 2-12 against a slick Clonmel Commercials outfit, with county U21 and senior star Ian Fahey bagging the first goal before Eoin Fitzgerald added another.

Despite losing 2011 All-Ireland minor medallist and senior ace Michael Quinlivan to a black card, Commercials still managed to build up a 0-9 to 0-4 half-time lead in Cashel.

Two goals in as many minutes put the end result beyond any doubt as Fahey struck first, followed by Fitzgerald’s killer second.

Elsewhere, David McGrath bagged a brace of goals and Tipperary dual minor star star Stephen Quirke also raised a green flag as Moyle Rovers walloped Galtee Rovers by 4-15 to 0-3 in the quarter-finals.

On Saturday, Arravale Rovers ran out 0-17 to 0-9 winners over Killenaule to book their place in the last four and the remaining semi-finalist will be revealed on Wednesday evening when Éire Og Annacarty take on Aherlow Gaels.
