Tipperary comprehensively defeated a lacklustre Cork side in Croke Park yesterday in a game that delighted Tipp fans but disappointed neutrals as it wasn't much of a spectacle.

Tipp dominated the game and goals from Seamus Callanan in either half set the platform for a great victory for the improving Premier County. They will now face Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Final on the first Sunday in September.

But if you are looking for something spectacular about the match, just have a look at these action photos taken by photographer Cathal Noonan, perfectly capturing Paudie O’Sullivan attempting to block down Tipperary defender James Barry.

In the first image we can see O'Sullivan coming into block with his eye firmly on the ball.

Barry's eyes are still following the flight of the ball, even as his opponents hurler is bent around his.

In the aftermath, the hurl is so badly broken it has tangled with the other.
