All roads led to the Gaelic Grounds yesterday as our under 21 hurlers bid to win the Limerick Under 21 Hurling championship.
We got off to a good start with a James Daly point inside 60 seconds. However this was quickly cancelled out and 2 goals in a short five minute spell really rocked us back on our heels.
This was compounded by the loss of our full back Mark O Connor with a shoulder injury. The water break brought some respite and in the second quarter we rallied superbly to rattle off 5 unanswered points. By the break it was Doon who led 2-6 to 0-7
We again started brightly in the third quarter with three points in a row however we again left ourselves exposed and conceded a third goal.
Credit to this young team who fought to the bitter end but it was Doon who prevailed in the end on a 3-19 to 1-14 score-line with Dylan Lynch scoring our goal.
A big shout out to Paul Condon and Emmet Beston who did a great jobs with the lads who will no doubt learn hugely from this campaign.
