Limerick Intermediate and Junior Football Championships First Round Recap

Outside of the top tier, there was action in the Intermediate and Junior Championships with 26 teams kicking off their seasons.

There was plenty of action in the first round of the Limerick Football Championships that kicked off last week with the clash of Gerald Griffins and Pallasgreen in the Intermediate Football Championship.]

In total there were 19 games in the top four tiers, with the first round of the senior football championship recapped here.

Below we look at the other 13 games starting with the intermediate championship where last year’s finalists were beaten.


In Group One Mungret St Pauls started their campaign in style with a comfortable win over last year’s runners up Drom Broadford. Elsewhere, recent finalists Rathkeale (2021) and Gerald Griffins (2019 & ’20) picked up facile victories to begin their championship journeys.

In Group Two, there was just one game with the other pair postponed due to players still involved with the Limerick Senior hurlers. In that game, Galbally laid out their intentions following relegation last year with a six point win over St Senans.
