WATCH | Limerick Masters outlast Armagh to secure Spirit Cup Title after extra-time

Goals from John Doyle and Michael O’Donoghue helped deliver a first title for the Limerick Masters over the weekend.

In their first year in existence the Limerick Masters side have earned All-Ireland honours, defeating Armagh in the Spirit Cup final over the weekend.

Extra-time was needed in St Brigids on Saturday evening as Limerick eventually sealed the title with a 2-14 to 1-13 win.

Captain Maurice O’Connor lifted the Spirit Cup to bring to an end a perfect maiden season for the side.

Limerick got off to a brilliant start with John Doyle netting in the tenth minute after a stunning pass from Trevor Cosgrave.

That margin remained until the half with Limerick leading 1-5 to 0-5.

However the third quarter belonged to Armagh who took the lead and then moved four clear after hitting the net with fifteen to play.

They wouldn’t score again in normal time as Limerick battled back to salvage a draw, Ronan Magee with the equaliser in the final minute.

Anthony McCarthy’s side controlled the extra period and finally secured the victory with Cosgrave again supplying the assist before Michael O’Donoghue dispatched to an empty net.
