Tipperary will face Kerry in the Munster Minor Football Championship final once again after both sides won through their respective semi-finals tonight.

The game will be a repeat of last year’s decider which Tipp edged by a goal. It will take place on 7 July at 12pm before the senior decider.

Tipperary battled past past Cork by three points in Semple Stadium in the last four.

They held a 0-05 to 0-01 lead at the half-time and when they knocked over the first three points of the second period, the writing was on the wall for the Rebels.

Cork rallied but the Premier men secured a 0-11 to 0-08 victory.

Kerry had a easier passage against Waterford, all the Deise did fight back late on to give the Kingdom a scare.

David Foran goal helped Kerry to a 1-09 to 0-04 advantage at the halfway point.

Despite Tomás Cooney’s dismissal, Waterford scored two late goals but it was Kerry that came away with a 1-15 to 2-06 success.
