HIGHLIGHTS | Nothing to separate Limerick and Tipperary in Thurles thriller

John McGrath had the composure to level with the final puck of the game from a free to ensure parity and send the Munster championship to a final round shoot out.

The fate of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship is going down to the wire as Tipperary and Limerick played out a draw in the third round in Thurles yesterday.

The 0-25 apiece draw moves Tipp onto four points and leaves them in pole position to join Clare in the Munster final while Limerick are on three and need to beat Cork to ensure their season goes into the All-Ireland series.

The Shannonsiders were reduced to 14-men late on with Barry Nash getting his second yellow but scores from Graeme Mulcahy and Tom Morrissey had Limerick in front deep into injury time.

But John McGrath had the composure to level with the final puck of the game from a free to ensure parity.

Tipp started the brighter in Thurles and were full value for their 0-15 to 0-12 lead at the interval with Jake Morris and Mark Kehoe combining for 0-7 from play.

However, Limerick thundered into the contest after the interval, hitting the first four scores with Cathal O’Neill taking his own tally to five. But Tipp hit back and no team moved more than two clear in the final half hour hour with the draw a fair result in the end.
