Limerick and Clare face off with Munster Minor Hurling Final spot on offer

The winners will go on to face Cork in the final which is scheduled for next Tuesday evening in a venue to be confirmed.

The Limerick minor hurlers will look to get one over Clare for the second time this season as they meet in the Munster championship semi-final in Ennis.

Throw in at Cusack Park is at 6pm and is live on Sport TG4’s YouTube Channel.

The winners will go on to face Cork in the final which is scheduled for next Tuesday evening in a venue to be confirmed.

This will be the second meeting of the sides in this year’s championship with Limerick edging the round two clash in the TUS Gaelic Grounds. Goals from Sean Duff and Robert O’Farrell proved the difference in the 2-20 to 0-22 victory.

That game was in the midst of a three-in-a-row of wins for the young Shannonsiders after beating Waterford in their opener and following up with victory over Tipperary. However, Evan Loftus’ side were pipped by Cork in the final round which saw the Rebels leapfrog them into top spot and direct qualification to the final.

The previous meeting was Clare’s only thus far as they booked their place in the semi-finals with a win over Cork in their final game. They had a bye in the last round.

Loftus has named his side for the clash with the Banner as Micheal Leo comes in at full forward in the only change from the defeat to Cork. Patrick Kearney drops to the bench.

Clare will have a familiar look with no fewer than 18 Ardscoil Rís students between the squads. Mark O’Brien was the top scorer for Clare when the sides met last time out, hitting 0-9 while his schoolmate Michael Collins had three points from play for the Banner.

It is an intriguing tie and is made all the more interesting by Clare’s win over Limerick in the SHC on Saturday evening where the visitors ended the Treaty’s four year unbeaten Championship record.

For Limerick, they are aiming to get back to the final for the first time since 2020, their most recent success while Clare are seeking to return to the final where they were beaten in penalties last year.
