Limerick’s second All Ireland Title 100 Years Ago Today
Just a reminder that on this date, Saturday January 26th, 100 years to the day on from Limerick winning the 1918 All-Ireland hurling final, captained by Willie Hough (Monagea). It was played in January 1919 as it had been cancelled due to the outbreak of Spanish Flu in Ireland, in the Autumn of 1918. It was the first time a Limerick team were selected on an All-county basis instead of being represented by the club champions. They beat Wexford represented by Shelmaliers on a scoreline of 9-5 to 1-3.
