This represented a significant improvement on our group stage encounter, and the improvement against a top senior side bodes well for the season ahead.

Limerick Senior Footballers
Hard luck to Billy Lee and the Limerick senior footballers on their 2.18 to 1.16 defeat to Cork in the final round of qualifiers in Pairc Ui Caoimh. This brought to and end what has been a hugely positive season for Limerick, having qualified for D2 of the National League and qualified for the first Munster final since 2010. As a club we are very proud of the efforts of Billy, Iain, Cian, Diarmuid, Shane, Jimmy, Austin, Liam and James.
