Tipperary did enough on home turf to qualify for the phase one final of the Munster campaign.

When they went three ahead after 40 minutes thanks to a couple of frees from Kyle Shelly and an effort by Liam McCormack, they looked to be cruising but were then pushed hard. Riordan's injury-time free for Limerick made it a draw.
