Limerick win 22nd and hat-trick of Munster titles
Hearty congratulations to the Limerick senior hurlers manager John Kiely and our own Donal O’Grady and the rest of the management on winning their 22nd Munster Senior Hurling Championship and a first three-in-a-row in 85 years, 1933-’36 with a thrilling five point 2-29 to 3-21 victory over Tipperary at sunny Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday. This was certainly a Munster final of two halves with Tipperary leading by 10 points, 2-16 to 0-12 at the interval courtesy of green flags by Jack Morris and John O’Dwyer.
The game was to turn on its head after the interval with the Limerick boys out-scoring Tipperary by 1-1 to 0-1 with the boys in green and white goal. From the hurl of Seamus Flanagan to turn a ten point deficit into a two pint lead 1-22 to 2-17 at the second water break.
On the resumption Limerick’s lead was increased further helped on by the incredible Kyle Hayes’ goal for a 16 point turnaround in 22 minutes. Sub David Reidy from Dromin-Athlacca, Gearóid Hegarty and Peter Carey had white flags for Limerick in the final minutes before Tipperary had an injury time goal courtesy of Mark Kehoe. At the final whistle Limerick were worthy winners by 5 points of their 22nd Munster Senior Hurling Championship title and a first three-in-a-row in 87 years last achieved by Tipperary in 1997/’88/’89. Limerick are now through to the All-Ireland semi-final to be played on Saturday 7th August in Croke Park at 5p.m.
