Race for All Ireland tickets begins as Galway book September date with Kilkenny

The race for All Ireland Final tickets begins after Galway booked their place in Croke Park in September with a win over Tipperary in a cracking Semi final yesterday.

Shane Maloney scored a late winning point for the Tribesmen in the 0-26 to 3-16 win despite Seamus Callinans tally of 3-9, 3-5 from play.

Tipps Noel McGrath made a return to hurling four months after undergoing testicular cancer surgery and edged Tipperary ahead with a 70th minute point, but Jason Flynn and Shane Moloney got the crucial points for Galway.

Its a repeat of the 2012 All Ireland Final which was decided after a replay.
