HIGHLIGHTS | Cork see off Limerick to seal Munster MHC final spot with the Shannonsiders into the semis

Limerick will now face a trip to Clare in the semi-finals next Tuesday after suffering their first defeat of the campaign.

Limerick missed out on a chance to qualify directly for the Munster Minor Hurling Championship following a 1-14 to 0-20 defeat to Cork in the TUS Gaelic Grounds on Tuesday evening.

Evan Loftus’ side had the games only goal four minutes into the second half but couldn’t build on that advantage as Cork pointed their way back into the contest and ultimately, the final.

Limerick will now face a trip to Clare in the semi-finals next Tuesday after suffering their first defeat of the campaign.

Limerick got off to a flying start with Darren Collopy, Robert O’Farrell and Tadhg Boddy putting them three clear early on. Cork were level by the quarter hour mark with the sides exchanging scores until the half with Limerick leading by the minimum.

Cork started the second half the better with a pair but Limerick replied in kind with Ferland’s green flag. But the next three scores came from the Rebels. They went score for score until Cork pulled clear at 1-13 to 0-18 and while Collopy had Limerick within one late on, a pair of Barry Walsh scores secured the result for the Rebels.

Scorers for Limerick: Darren Collopy (0-6, 0-5 frees), Dara Ferland (1-1), Robert O’Farrell and Tadhg Boddy (0-3 each), Patrick Kearney (0-1).

LIMERICK: Joe Fitzgerald; J O’Keeffe, Conor Bickford, Sean Morrissey; Jack Cosgrove, Sean Casey, Shane Gleeson; Diarmuid Lyons, Matthew Fitzgerald; Robert O’Farrell, Dara Ferland, Tadhg Boddy; Hugh Flanagan, Patrick Kearney, Darren Collopy.

Subs Used: Cathal Hayes for Kearney (50), Michael Leo for Lyons (56), Cian Barrett for Ferland (59), Oisin Holmes for Boddy (60).
