The Caherdavin side are now three wins from three in the Senior Hurling Championship.
Na Piarsaigh have already secured their spot in the knockout stages of the 2022 SHC after beating Patrickswell by 14-points in round three on Saturday.
It was the most-anticipated game of the weekend with two heavyweights doing battle on the grand stage but Na Piarsaigh were in cruise control throughout and proved to everyone why they’re favourites for the title.
Although the 2020 winners were dominant throughout, captain William O’Donoghue believes neither side would’ve been particularly satisfied with their performances in the game.
“Conditions were quite tough, scores were hard to come by, probably wasn’t as good a game. I’d say both teams would’ve probably underperformed, there’s a lot more in Patrickswell. We’ll hope there’s a bit more in us, so it was night with lots of learnings for both teams.”
The Caherdavin side have been the team to beat in the championship and are dealing with everything that has been thrown at them in style, with defending champions Kilmallock coming closest to the City men in round two.
However, O’Donoghue still believes that there’s much more to the side and they’re building from each game and learning along the way.
“There’s always things to work on, if you’re hitting full-flight tonight you’d probably be a bit worried. As long as we can just get a bit better than we were against Kilmallock and the next night against Adare if we can be a bit better than we were tonight that’s all we’re looking for.”
Na Piarsaigh face Adare this Saturday at 6pm in Ballybrown in the fourth round of the Bon Secours Limerick Senior Hurling Championship.
