Watch: The Sublime Jamie Clarke Goal That Sunk Tipperary

Watch: The Sublime Jamie Clarke Goal That Sunk Tipperary
By David Kent

Armagh won through to their first Round four qualifier in four years after a magnificent battle with Tipperary in Semple Stadium.

After Tipp were looking comfortable following Michael Quinlivan's goal, Niall Grimley dragged the Orchard back into the game. He kicked eight points to set up a dramatic finale.

But it was Jamie Clarke's magnificent goal which would kill off the Premier once and for all.

With Tipp goalkeeper Ciaran Kenrick advancing on him, Clarke threw a terrific dummy, tipping the ball off his left foot to the ground. In what is known in some GAA parts as 'soccer style' he calmly fired the ball to the net to give Armagh a four point lead.

It was a brilliant counter attack from Armagh. Steven Sheridan's ball through the Tipp defence after a lung-busting run was the key.

Social media was swooning over the finish:

Armagh now advance to take on the losers of Kildare/Dublin or Tyrone. Kieran McGeeney's side cannot face Down in Round 4. Should Down lose tomorrow, it'll be the loser of the Leinster final for Armagh.
