TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship semi-finals

Sligo v Tipperary

Meath v Roscommon

 

Last year’s beaten finalists Meath are back in the semi-finals of the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship with Roscommon waiting in the last four.

 

Tipperary had a narrow win over Clare and they will take on Sligo in the second semi-final, with both games taking place at Nowlan Park on 17 August.

 

Roscommon clashed with Kildare in the first of the quarter-finals on Sunday and having topped Group 4 the Connacht outfit continued their bright form in Kinnegad with a 2-18 to 2-10 success.

 

Kildare had the wind but the sides were level 2-5 to 1-8 at half-time. Aimee O’Connor scored Roscommon’s goal and although Orlaith Sullivan and Neasa Dooley hit back, Roscommon scored the final four points of the half.

 

Molly Price scored first for Kildare after the resumption but Roscommon took a two-point advantage before the turning point in the 53rd minute when Jenny Higgins scored the winning goal.

 

And in the second of the double-header at Kinnegad, Sligo moved into the semi-finals but it was much closer than the 13-point difference earlier in the league.

 

Ciara Gorman scored the Sligo goal in the first half but that was cancelled out by Marie Byrne and Grainne Egan, with Lauren Boles’ strike decisive in the four-point win for the Yeats county.
