Tipperary are through to the All Ireland quarter-finals after a determined performance in their final group game against Offaly last evening.
The Premier started the day propping up Group 2 with no points from their three previous games.
But they emerged from St Brendan’s Park in Birr with a 3-13 to 2-13 victory over Offaly and in the process leapfrogged over the Faithful women by virtue of a one-point better score difference.
Tipp will now face Galway in the quarter-finals on August 5th.
Manager Brian Boyle admits going into yesterday’s game that didn’t look likely.
The other quarter-final pits Dublin against Wexford.
