Tipperary minor footballers joined the senior hurlers in the All Ireland final with a semi-final win over Roscommon at Croke Park on Sunday.

Despite earlier victories over Kerry, Cork and Meath, Tipp went into the semi-final as underdogs but turned in a superb performance to win by two points, 1-11 to 0-12.

The crucial score was a goal from full forward Michael Quinlivan forty seconds into the second half.

They now meet either Dublin or Galway in the final.
