1. #GAA Cork’s Pat Horgan scored a late equalising point against Tipp in a thriller at Semple Stadium yesterday. The sides will now meet again in a play-off.

Elsewhere, Kilkenny had too much for a young Galway side at Nowlan Park while Waterford secured their status. Here’s how the rest of the day’s action unfolded.

2. #PREMIER LEAGUE Liverpool’s season took another dramatic turn for the worse yesterday as Newcastle heaped more misery on an under-pressure Kenny Dalglish. Cisse scored twice in a 2-0 win as Andy Carroll misfired on his first return to his hometown club. He later reacted angrily to being substituted before goalkeeper Jose Reina was sent off for a ‘headbutt’.

3. #PREMIER LEAGUE Later yesterday, Spurs got back to winning ways with a 3-1 victory against Swansea at White Hart Lane.

4. #TENNIS World number one Novak Djokovic won the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami with a 6-1 7-6 (7-4) victory over Andy Murray on Sunday.

5. #GOLF It’s Masters week, ladies and gentlemen. Start it the right way with this look back at seven magic Augusta moments.
