Munster Club SFC: Clonmel come from behind to book final ticket

November 17, 2019

Clonmel Commercials' Ross Peters and Michael Murphy celebrate

Clonmel Commercials have qualified for their second Munster Club SFC decider in five years.

The Tipperary champions scraped over the challenge of hosts St Joseph’s Miltown today on a scoreline of 0-9 to 0-7.

Backed by the wind in the second-half, a string of points from the Kennedy’s, Jack (2), Conal and Seamus, were key to Charlie McGeever’s side's success.

The winners had trailed by 0-3 to 0-6 at the change of ends.

Commercials will be hoping that history repeats itself when they take on Nemo Rangers in the provincial decider on December 1.

They defeated the Rebel County kingpins by 1-7 to 0-9 in the 2015 final.
