Another good week for Limerick on the playing field with more success as the Munster Championship continues at pace

The week of further success, got underway on Saturday evening 23rd April with the visit of Allianz Hurling League Champions Waterford to TUS Gaelic Grounds to play Limerick in Round 2, Munster Senior Hurling Championship, the home side emerged with a victory on a score-line of 0.30 to 2.21. The following Tuesday evening it was the turn of the Minor Hurlers of Limerick and Waterford to clash in the Minor Championship and the visitors scored a 2.12 to 0.10 victory to reach the Provincial Semi Final. The same Counties met for the third time in a Munster Hurling Championship fixture when on Wednesday evening 27th. April, Waterford were again the visitors, this time to TUS Gaelic Grounds for Semi Final of the Munster Under 20 Hurling Championship where the home side emerged winners 0.27 to 2.21 to qualify for the final.
On Thursday evening The Minor Footballers made the journey to Leamybrien to play Waterford in the Munster Minor Football Championship where they recorded a 1.16 to 0.09 win to reach the Phase 1 Final. It was back on the road again on Saturday evening 30th April, a trip to Ennis for the opening Round of the Munster Senior Football Championship, the sides finished level after a very close encounter Clare 1.14 Limerick 1.14, extra time was played, once again the sides were level Clare 1.19 Limerick 2.16, it was now down to penalties and it was the visitors who were the victors on 4.00 to 1.00 score-line and qualify for the Provincial Championship Semi Final. to complete what was a great week with 4 victories from 5 outings in Munster Championship games
It was ironic that was the first Munster Football Championship game to be decided on penalties was a Clare and Limerick fixture, as the same two Counties were involved in a similar situation in an Allianz League Hurling Quarter Final game in the Gaelic Grounds on 19th. March 2018, that finished level after seventy minutes play and the sides were still level after extra time was played, the game was decided on sudden death free taking and it was Limerick that broke the deadlock to win by a point margin after two and a half hours entertainment on a cold Bank Holiday Monday.

While the following evening, the same Counties meet in Mallow in the Minor Football Championship at 7pm.
