Limerick will play Kerry in the Munster U-20 Football Championship semi final after they beat Tipperary at Mick Neville Park last night.
Barry Coleman was the match winner for Jerry O’Sullivan’s side as his point three minutes into added time proved to be the winning one.
O’Sullivan’s charges will now play his native Kerry in the last four clash next week at a Limerick venue.
Tipperary made a bright start to the game with the first two points, but James Cummins soon had Limerick on the board.
Mark O’Meara restored Tipperary’s two point advantage with a sensational point from the right wing.
However, Limerick went in at the break down by one point after Eoin O’Mahony scored the first of two marks.
Limerick made a brilliant start to the second half as points from Brian Foley, Rory O’Brien, O’Mahony and John Hayes saw them lead 0-6 to 0-3 going into the final 10 minutes.
Tipperary fought back to level going into added time, but Coleman booked Limerick’s spot in the last four with his late, late show.
