The Ahane native had Limerick’s final point of the day that looked like the winner only for John McGrath to level with the last puck of the game.
Limerick duo Tom Morrissey and Cathal O’Neill have been selected on the GAA.ie Hurling Team of the Week following the penultimate round of the Munster SHC.
Both were named from the start as Limerick and Tipperary played out a 0-25 apiece draw to take the championship standings to the final round of games next week.
Morrissey was in scintillating form as he continued an incredible start to the 2023 championship with 0-4 from play whilst also coming up big with a number of plays. The Ahane native had Limerick’s final point of the day that looked like the winner only for John McGrath to level with the last puck of the game.
O’Neill, who was a late replacement for Peter Casey, had a coming of age game with five points from play including a pair right after the resumption when Limerick took the lead for only the second time.
Limerick’s opponents Tipperary have four players selected to the team of the week with Jake Morris nominated for the Player of the Week award. He will be up against Diarmaid Ryan, who was the match winner for Clare against Cork in Ennis and Niall Mitchell of Westmeath who bagged a brace in their incredible win over Wexford.
Elsewhere, Galway and Cork are also represented in the team.
