Limerick Senior Football Championship set to go down to the wire

Both groups in the County Senior Football Championship are wide open following the weekend’s action.

In Group 1, Monaleen failed to retain their 100\% record in the competition as Intermediate Champions Adare snatched a 1-13 a piece draw to keep their hopes of progression alive.

While Father Casey’s moved into second place with a 3-10 to 11 point win over Dromcollogher Broadford.

Na Piarsaigh, meanwhile, secured a vital first championship win of the campaign, the saw off Rathkeale 1-12 to 11 points, and in doing so leapfrogged their opponents into second from bottom.

 

Group 2 is even tighter following an action-packed weekend.

Oola shocked unbeaten Newcastle West in a thrilling game, to record their second win of the campaign on a 3-8 to 1-13 score line to move them within a point of the leaders.

Meanwhile, St Patricks also picked up a somewhat surprising victory over Ballylanders on a score line of 1-14 to 0-11.

While Ballysteen showed that they won’t be going down without a fight as they played out a 1-8 to 11 points draw with St Kieran’s, who would have found themselves top of the pile had they managed to claim victory.
