Robbie Hanley was a key figure throughout Saturday’s success for Limerick.
The promising and energetic Kilmallock midfielder repeatedly drove Limerick forward during their win over Kilkenny.
Hanley was immense for Pat Donnelly’s Limerick outfit, who were deserving winners at Semple Stadium.
Shane Conway was highly impressive in a lively Kerry attack against Wicklow in the Under 21 B decider.
Jack Goulding and Maurice O’Connor also clipped fine scores, but Conway’s accuracy from frees was critical.
Conway also pounced for an opportunistic goal which ensured he finished the afternoon with a 1-6 haul.
Patrickswell clubman Aaron Gillane is part of an exciting crop of Limerick hurlers.
Gillane struck seven points for Limerick against Kilkenny including five from play.
It has been an encouraging year for Gillane, who also registered 1-5 in the Independent.ie Fitzgibbon Cup Final for Mary Immaculate College in February.
