A draw was the outcome of Limerick and Clare’s Senior Munster Hurling clash over the weekend.
Limerick maintained their unbeaten record in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship after a 1-21 to 0-24 draw with Clare that booked both sides place in the provincial final in three weeks time.
Kyle Hayes, positioned at full forward, netted after a quarter of an hour for Limerick but there was nothing to separate the sides at the break with the teams level at 1-12 to 0-15 in a half where no team led by more than a puck of the ball.
Tony Kelly, hit the last of his 16 points just ten minutes into the second half but the teams were still level when Gearoid Hegarty was controversially sent off with ten to play.
But with a man down, Diarmuid Byrnes came to the teams rescue with his ninth point to draw the sides level for the 14th time in the game with time in the red.
Limerick and Clare will now meet again in the Munster Senior Hurling Final after Cork’s win over Waterford.
