There was more than one mismatch in the GAA football provincial series today!

Tipperary underlined their potential as a serious team when they demolished the challenge of Waterford in Thurles' Semple Stadium.

Even though they failed to win promotion from Division 3, Peter Creedon's Tipperary charges hit a commendable 1-24 against the hapless visitors who could only manage five points.

All-Ireland champions Kerry will be the next visitors to Thurles for the Munster semi-final next month and they won't relish the prospects of taking on a superbly confident Tipp side.

Meanwhile, after last year's scoring feast between Fermanagh and Antrim it was back to more a traditional Ulster championship tie in Enniskillen when they clashed again.

Favourites Fermanagh prevailed though an injury time penalty from Sean Quigley put a gloss on their victory which they scarcely deserved.

Pete McGrath's side struggled for long periods against the battling visitors but in the end pulled away to win 1-13 to 0-8.

Fermanagh now meet Monaghan in the Ulster semi-final.
