Tipperary’s senior camogie side have made their way into the National League semi-finals with an impressive victory over Offaly.
Cáit Devane and Grace O’Brien goals in the first half helped Tipp into a commanding 2-8 to 0-7 lead at half time.
Despite a sending off for Roisin Howard for two yellow cards, Tipp continued to perform strongly and another Devane goal from a penalty and a second for Grace O’Brien helped them on their way to a 4-17 to 0-13 win.
Tipperary have been drawn to face All-Ireland Champions Kilkenny in the semi-finals of the National Camogie League next Sunday at 1pm, in the first game of a double header at Nowlan Park.
Cork will take on Galway in the other semi-final in Kilkenny that day, throwing in at 5pm.
