Four Limerick sides record All Ireland League victories

It was a positive weekend for Limerick’s All Ireland League sides on Saturday afternoon following the festive break, with four out of the six clubs in action coming away with victories.

Garryowen continued to push for Division 1A top spot after a dominant 40-14 bonus-point win over UCD at home in Dooradoyle.

The ‘Light Blues’ cemented their second-place position in the League to move five points clear of their Dublin rival.

Meanwhile, Young Munster were on the wrong side of an 18-3 scoreline to defending champions Cork Constitution in Temple Hill. The defeat sees Gearoid Prendergast’s side remain in seventh place in the top flight on 21 points.

In Division 1B, Shannon impressed with a 31-13 bonus point victory over league leaders Highfield in Thomond Park. ‘The Parish’ move to sixth position, just a single point off playoff territory.

Old Crescent continued their push for top spot of Division 2A after edging past Buccaneers 12-10 at Dubarry Park. The tightly contested win on the road sees Crescent narrow the gap to 13 points from league leaders MU Barnhall.

UL Bohemian secured a bonus-point win over Cashel at UL’s 4G pitch.

The ‘Red Robins’ 28-24 victory over the Tipperary club sees Tom Hayes side avoid the relegation zone to sit in eighth position with 14 points.

In Division 2C, Bruff suffered a ten-point defeat to Tullamore in Spollanstown. The Limerick side’s 13-3 loss means they drop to ninth in the table.
