The Deise men scored their second goal with fifteen minutes remaining on the clock to take the lead 2.07 to 1.09 and added two further points to lead by a goal 2.09 to 1.09 with ten minutes remaining.
Limerick didn’t give up the fight and were rewarded when Seamus O’Carroll scored a late goal followed by a pointed free by Sean McSweeney ensured a first win of the campaign for the Treaty County on a 2-10 to 2-9 scoreline.
