Thurles Sarsfields will take on Borrisoleigh in the Tipperary County Senior Hurling Final.

The defending champions were 9 point winners over Eire Óg Annacarty Donohill in yesterday’s semi-final.

27 points to 18 the final score at Semple Stadium last evening.

Sars are going for their 4th county title in a row – however captain Paudie Maher says they will have to up their game.

Borrisoleigh have reached the County Final for the first time since 1988 thanks to a 1-16 to 1-12 win over near neighbours Drom & Inch.

A Dan McCormack goal in added time eased the pressure for Borris as Drom & Inch fought back strongly towards the end.

Captain Paddy Stapleton says they’ll have to convert more of their scoring opportunities.
