WATCH: Mike Sherry, Garryowen FC coach, on their Munster Senior Cup semi-final win

GARRYOWEN became the first side to reach this season's Munster Senior Cup final when edging past Cashel RFC 33-21 at Dooradoyle on Friday night.

Garryowen had trailed 19-21 inside the final quarter as former Light Blue Steve McMahon landed his third penalty goal of the evening for the Tipperary side.

However, a strong finish from All-Ireland League Division 1A leaders Garryowen, including tries from winger Colm Quilligan and out-half Jamie Heuston, helped ease Garryowen to victory.
