GAELIC GAMES: Armagh battle back to beat Tipperary

Determined Tipperary stay the course in key clash away to Laois

Determined Tipperary stay the course in key clash away to Laois

Armagh have made quiet progress in the qualifiers since losing to Down in Newry in the Ulster quarter-final.

Armagh's journey in the qualifiers continues after they secured a two-point victory in a close-fought encounter with Tipperary in Thurles.

An eight-point haul from man of the match Niall Grimley and a goal from Jamie Clarke in the 70th minute were the key scores as the visitors avenged the defeat they endured against Tipp in the last round of the league - a loss which cost them promotion.

Tipp had put themselves in a good position at the break, leading by 0-10 to 0-8 after playing with the breeze.

Tipp All-Star Michael Quinlivan had crashed home a stunning goal in the 38th minute, taking a pass from Conor Sweeney before sending a rising drive past Blaine Hughes, but it would be another 20 minutes before they again they again raised a flag.

Luis Silva gave RSL an early 1-0 lead with a goal in the 23rd minute sending the sold out crowd into a frenzy. Silva still had work to do but brushed off Jones and poked his finish past Joel Pereira.

Tipperary fans felt most aggrieved in the second-half, but he horsed Armagh in the first-half by disallowing a goal by Gavin McParland, instead calling the game back for an Armagh free, supposedly for a foul on McParland.

A Conor Sweeney free levelled matters and Stefan Campbell restored Tipp's lead, but McGeeney's charges refused to lie down.

A swift breakaway saw Brendan Donaghy feed Gavin McParland, and McParland off-loaded to Clarke and he slotted home for the decisive goal.

Armagh wrapped up their place in the next round when they caught Tipp on the counter attack in the 70th minute.

The big talking point after the game wasn't Armagh's win, as Tipp manager Liam Kearns lashed referee Paddy Neilan.

Prince Harry's friend says engagement with Meghan Markle is on
From the moment it was announced that Prince Harry was seeing Canadian actress Meghan Markle , the public's interest was ignited. Another day, another tiny little morsel about the maybe future marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"We did okay in the Fermanagh game but last week there's no doubt that if Westmeath had taken their chances then Armagh were gone". And I didn't see that and he did obviously. Fair play to Armagh. I think they were probably the better team. This time Armagh left no room for any romance. Armagh were much the better team.

"In fairness, that was payback for Armagh". So they've done the same to us now.

Armagh: B Hughes; B Donaghy, J Morgan, C Vernon; G McCabe (0-1), P Hughes, A Forker (0-1); S Sheridan (0-1), N Grimley (0-8, 0-5f, 0-1 45); C O'Hanlon, M Shields, R Grugan (0-2, 0-1f); A Murnin, J Clarke (1-1), G McParland (0-2).

Tipperary scorers: J Keane 0-4 (2f), M Quinlivan 1-0, C Sweeney 0-3f, L Casey, K O'Halloran (1f) & J Kennedy (2f) 0-2 each, B Fox & P Austin 0-1 each.

The Roscommon whistler needed a Garda escort off the pitch at full time and he denied Armagh a perfectly good goal in the first half, failing to play advantage as Gavin McParland stuck the ball in the net.

R. Kelly "alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him"
In 2008, Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges after he was accused of having sex with an underage girl and filming it. If they broke the "rules", they said, the women could be punished physically and verbally by the singer, according to the report.
