Final knockout places in the Intermediate and Junior A Hurling Championships filled

The remaining pair of knockout berths in both the IHC and JAHC were filled over the weekend following a weather disrupted final round.

Almost all of the outstanding fixtures in the Limerick Intermediate and Junior A championships were played over the weekend. But while some fell foul to the weather again, the knockout places in both championships were filled.


Granagh Ballingarry made it five wins from five as they saw off Murroe Boher who also booked their quarter final spot despite defeat. Knockainey’s win over St Kierans ensured their safe passage while last year’s junior champions missed out on head to head with Murroe Boher.

Second placed Knockainey will face Hospital Herbertstown this Sunday with Bruree facing Murroe Boher the previous afternoon. Granagh Ballingarry and Croagh Kilfinny are in the semi-finals.

Junior A

Kilteely Dromkeen received a walkover against Staker Wallace to guarantee their place atop the group one table while Monagea join them in the quarters following their victory against Patrickswell on Saturday afternoon.

In group three, Killeedy saw off Ahane to leave them in the relegation play-offs while the group four clash of Doon and Bruff was postponed with both sides already eliminated but neither in relegation danger.
