Tipperary have won Allianz Football League Division 3 after a high scoring encounter against Louth at Croke Park. 

The 2016 All Ireland championship surprise package had reached the third tier decider in dramatic fashion thanks to a Michael Quinlivan late goal to cap a hat-trick.

And one week on, the Munster county can celebrate league silverware after a 3-19 to 0-19 win over Louth.

The first Tipp goal was scored by Liam Casey four minutes before half time, before Conor Sweeney added another on 48 minutes.

Sweeney added a third goal deep into injury time for the Premier County. 

Both Tipp and Louth can now look forward to playing Division 2 football in 2018.
