Final four in Limerick PIHC confirmed as Cappamore fall to relegation

Newcastle West were the big losers of the weekend, missing out on the top four after their round two loss to Blackrock with the Rockies edging through on Head to Head.

The group stages of the Limerick Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship came to a conclusion on Sunday afternoon with the remaining semi-finalists confirmed.

The semi-finals will consist of Effin, Dromin Athlacca, Bruff and Blackrock while Cappamore were relegated after losing their seventh successive game.

Newcastle West were the big losers of the weekend, missing out on the top four after their round two loss to Blackrock by a single point, the Rockies edging through on Head to Head.

Effin, who were the only team assured of progress heading into the final round, secured top spot with a five point win over Cappamore.

Dromin Athlacca and Bruff both did what they have to do with wins over Na Piarsaigh and Newcastle West respectively guaranteeing their semi-final berth.

Blackrock knew a win would be enough to progress but fell to Glenroe 2-15 to 0-17. However the result between Bruff and Newcastle West kept Blackrock in contention.

In the semi-finals, Effin will take on Blackrock while Dromin Athlacca will meet last year’s finalists Bruff.
