The senior team overcame a distinct wobble against Waterford to book their place in the semi-finals of the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship on Saturday evening.
The Déise trailed 0-11 to 1-4 in the interval, but rallied well in the second half. Indeed, when referee Owen Elliott signaled his intention to play three minutes of injury time there was just three points between the sides. However, when Cáit Devane’s long-range free dropped into the net in the 62nd minute there was no way back for Waterford at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork.
Orla O’Dwyer was named as the player of the match while Ciardha Maher and Mary Ryan were also outstanding on a Tipperary team who will simply have to improve to a significant degree in order to compete in the last four of the competition.
Manager Bill Mullaney is joined on the management team by selectors Niamh Lillis, Cian Treacy, Carmel Bradshaw and Aaron Whelahan while the maor foirne for the team is John Lillis.
Meanwhile the Tipperary intermediate team enjoyed a very comfortable victory on Sunday over Kildare (7-26 to 2-4) and duly topped their group.
