FRIDAY QUIZ: Can you name the Limerick players that featured in the 2006 National League Final?

Fifteen years ago this month, Limerick reached a first League final in nine years as they matched up with Kilkenny in Semple Stadium.

In the end Kilkenny claimed a fourth title in five years as Limerick’s wait continued.

Henry Shefllin was in inspired form for the Cats as they won out 3-11 to 0-14 in the decider.
