Dr McKenna Cup
Monaghan 0-16 Fermanagh 0-11
Monaghan manager Seamus McEnaney saw his experimental side put in a solid display as they took victory against Fermanagh, with some of the more experienced players showing their class.
Newcomer Shane Woods was a tower of strength at full-back and Jack McCarron was prominent throughout as the Farney men led by five points at the interval.
Aaron Mulligan picked off three points from play and the men in white had 11 different scorers, including goalkeeper Rory Beggan.
While Fermanagh's five second-half points came from five different players, they were always kept at arm’s length by the hosts.
Limerick 0-14 Tipperary 1-12
Tipperary finished strongly to edge past Limerick in Rathkeale by the bare minimum.
The Premier men found scores hard to come by in the opening half, with Sean O'Connor getting all of their points from frees before he struck for what proved to be the decisive score in the game with a 30th-minute goal at Mick Neville Park.
It was all square at the break, 1-05 to 0-08, and Conor Ryan nudged Tipp ahead with the first score of the half.
Limerick however hit something of a purple patch, with Hugh Bourke kicking things off as the men in green assumed the lead.
The visitors did come good down the stretch, O’Connor keeping the umpires occupied from play and another free, with Jack Kennedy claiming a brace of points.
David Power’s men will now face Kerry on Wednesday night in what is essentially a winner-takes-all contest.
