Dromin Athlacca managed to score a late winner despite surrendering a ten-point lead to a dogged Blackrock side.
Dromin Athlacca were crowned Limerick Premier Intermediate Hurling champions over the weekend, as they defeated Blackrock by the minimum in the TUS Gaelic Grounds.
Blackrock trailed by ten points at one stage, but late goals fired the runners up back level in the dying stages.
Dromin Athlacca were able to force over one final score to swing the tie in their favour, and secure Senior hurling for 2024.
In the Intermediate championship, Granagh Ballingarry picked up a two-point win over Croagh Kilfinny to land the 2023 crown.
A spirited display saw them put up 18-points to earn promotion to next year’s Premier Intermediate championship.
The best of the drama was saved for the Junior A final, which Mungret St Paul’s won, with the tie going all the way to penalties.
Luke Ryan stepped up with a crucial point for Feenagh Kilmeedy to send the game to extra-time and the sides remained level following the added period, meaning penalties ensued.
Mungret won the shootout 4-1, adding more glory to what has been a successful year for the club at all grades.
