By John Keogh Limerick Leader Sport
MUNGRET St Paul’s and Feenagh-Kilmeedy are set to face off in the Woodlands House Hotel Limerick Junior A hurling final when they meet in Kilmallock.
Both teams come into today’s decider on unbeaten records from the group stage and in the quarter and semi-finals. Mungret’s second team are aiming for their first stint at intermediate grade, while Feenagh-Kilmeedy are looking to get back up to intermediate for the first time since 2016.
It’s been a great year for Mungret in both hurling and football. Their senior side earned promotion to Senior A for 2024, while their intermediate and junior a footballers are both in county finals next week.
Mungret are led by goalkeeper Declan Browne and have seen Conor Flahive, Mike Mullins and Mark O’Brien in excellent form throughout their campaign. They topped group four on nine points, with their only fumble being a draw with Drom-Broadford in round five.
Feenagh-Kilmeedy had maximum points in group three and had victories over Drom-Broadford in the quarter-final and Kilteely-Dromkeen in their semi-final. They are trained by former Limerick hurler Mark Keane.
Mungret saw off St Patrick’s and Monagea in the knockout stages and have Mike Fitzgerald and Kevin O’Hagan as part of their management team.
The game has a 1pm throw-in at Fitzgerald Park, Kilmallock and will be streamed live by Limerick GAA TV.
