Limerick progress in U25 Championship

The Limerick U25 squad defeated Clare in the inaugural Munster U25 Competition to set up a Munster final clash against Waterford. Limerick progressed to the final with a 4-17 to 0-16 win in the curtain raiser for the Munster Championship Senior Semi Final.

Limerick’s panel consisted of the current extended U21 panel minus the nine U21 players that are part of the senior squad. Na Piarsaigh’s Ronan Lynch, who is a part of Kiely’s squad was a late introduction to the side. Clare on the other hand had six players not eligible for U21 and also 4 members of the senior panel.

After 10 minutes, Clare held a 0-4 to 0-2 lead with Robbie Hanley and Kyle Dillon getting on the scoresheet for the Treaty men. That was to be as good as it got for the Clare side as Thomas Grimes levelled the scores in the 18th minute, 0-5 a piece.

A minute later, Paudie Ahern would get his first goal of the game with an impressive finish. Limerick took a 1-10 to 0-8 lead into the break with them.

Limerick took control in the opening minutes of the second period and Ahern’s second goal had them ahead 2-14 to 0-9 with 20 minutes remaining.

Ahern seaed his hat trick minutes later, before Mike Mackey got on the score sheet to leave Limerick cruising to the win 4-14 to 0-10 with quarter of an hour remaining.
