REIGNING CHAMPIONS THURLES Sarsfields are through to this year’s Tipperary senior hurling semi-finals after the weekend’s action and they will be joined by Killenaule, Clonoulty-Rossmore and Kiladangan in the last four.

Pa Bourke and Richie Ruth both hit the net as Thurles Sarsfields claimed a 15-point win yesterday over Borris-Ileigh, who had Tipperary All-Ireland winning captain Brendan Maher in their ranks.

John O’Dwyer’s Killenaule secured a three-point win over Kilruane McDonaghs while today at Semple Stadium there were wins for West champions Clonoulty-Rossmore and North champions Kiladangan, the latter knocking out 2011 title holders Drom-Inch.

In Galway, the senior hurling final will be contested by 2013 All-Ireland club winners St Thomas and the 2014 Galway champions Gort after today’s semi-finals.

St Thomas saw off Loughrea by five points while Gort defeated last year’s finalists Craughwell by two points.

In Offaly, it will be a first meeting of Birr and St Rynagh’s in the senior hurling showpiece since 2001 while Leinster club kingpins Oulart-the-Ballagh will take on Cloughbawn in the Wexford decider.
