CLONMEL COMMERCIALS ARE the Munster football champions — and they did it in the most dramatic way possible.

The Tipp men trailed Nemo Rangers by 0-9 to 0-7 into the second minute of stoppage time when Seamus Kennedy pumped a long free towards goal.

Michael Quinlivan took full advantage of a bit of confusion in the Nemo defence and pounced, drilling a low shot across the face of Micheal Martin’s goal and into the far corner.

The TG4 cameramen were fighting a losing battle in Mallow today but here’s their footage of a moment that will live long in Clonmel history:
