Dunne seals Tipp win

All-Ireland hurling champions Tipperary scored a 3-22 to 0-23 win over Cork in a thrilling Munster SHC quarter-final at Thurles.

Tipp led by 2-11 to 0-10 at half-time, their goals coming from Eoin Kelly and Lar Corbett.

Cork fought their way back, with Pat Horgan bringing his tally to 13 points, but a late goal from substitute Benny Dunne sealed it for Tipperary.

Dublin scored a 2-21 to 1-20 win over Offaly to make a positive start to their Leinster SHC campaign.

Paul Ryan blasted a penalty to the net after just three minutes to give Dublin a dream start, and they pushed on with points from Conal Keaney, Ryan and Ryan O'Dwyer.

But Shane Dooley converted a string of frees, and fired in a goal on the stroke of half-time to leave just a point between the sides, the Dubs ahead by 1-9 to 1-8 at the break.

Ryan and Keaney continued to hit the target as Dublin pulled away, and while Dooley and Joe Bergin scored on the counter-attack, they faded after Derek Molloy was sent off for a second booking.
