There were easy victories for Galway and Tipperary hurlers in the league semi-finals. Galway beat Limerick by 10pts and Tipp beat Wexford by 11pts.
Galway always lead by Limerick and were never in danger, and will play their first league final since 2010.
Tipperary were only 2pts up with 20min to play and then hit 2-04 without reply to go 12pts up. John McGrath hit 2-02
The final will be in the Gaelic grounds next Sunday in what should be a cracker between Galway and Tipperary who met in the All-Ireland semi-final last year.
