Clonmel Commercials hopes of adding a Munster title to their Tipp Senior Football Championship are over.
They fell to defending provincial and All Ireland champions Dr Crokes of Kerry yesterday.
Despite starting well and leading by 7 points to 5 at half time Commercials fell to a strong Crokes performance in the second half.
Crokes finished the game with 14 men after Alan O’Sullivan was red-carded in the second half.
It finished 14 points to 8 in favour of Dr Crokes in front of a crowd of over 1,800 at Clonmel Sportsfield.
Commercials manager Charlie McGeever admitted they were left rueing a missed opportunity.
