Limerick SHC Round 4 Preview

The Limerick SHC returned last weekend with a full round of fixtures in both Group 1 and 2.

In Group 1 Patrickswell cemented their place on the top of the table with their third consecutive win with a 3-17 to 0-12 victory over South Liberties. Kevin O’Brien got a brace of goals with John Flynn notching the other. That was Liberties third loss of the campaign leaving them pointless still. The ‘Well are not mathematically qualified yet but are all but assured of their place in the knockout stages.

On Saturday Doon picked up their first win of the competition with a 1-14 to 0-14 win over Adare to move above the West side. Darragh O’Donovan would prove the match winner with his first half penalty while fellow county man Pat Ryan was in flying form.

However, the result of the weekend came on Thursday night when Na Piarsaigh blitzed Kilmallock, 6-15 to 2-11 in the Gaelic Grounds with Micheal Ryan’s side in imperious form. Peter Casey finished with 2-5 while Will Henn, Conor Boylan, Shane Dowling and Kevin Ryan also found the net. Kilmallock had goals from Oisin O’Reilly and Paudie O’Brien in the sixteen-point defeat.

This weekend South Liberties and Doon kick-off proceedings on Friday night when they meet in Caherconlish. Another loss for Liberties will see them relegated while pushing Doon into second place in the table for a couple of hours at the least.

Elsewhere on Friday evening, Kilmallock meet Patrickswell in the Gaelic Grounds, a game that will be exclusively live on Limerick GAA TV. A win for the ‘Well will see them straight into the semi-finals but a Kilmallock victory would move them into second a point behind Ciaran Carey’s men.

Na Piarsaigh and Adare round off the games on Saturday when they meet in Mungret. A loss for Adare could potentially see them out of the championship should other results go against them. However, a win would see them move above the Caherdavin side with so much up for grabs in the championship still.

All is left to play for in Group 2 where the teams are more congested.

Last weekend Monaleen picked up a valuable 0-22 to 2-15 win over Knockainey as they moved to the top of the table on five points. Knockainey remain on a single point at the bottom of the table.

Ahane were victorious over Garryspillane 3-9 to 1-13 on Sunday as they moved into second in the table.

Murroe-Boher and Ballybrown played out a 2-18 to 1-21 draw on Sunday with both sides also on three points from three games.

This weekend Ballybrown face Garryspillane on Friday evening with the Bouncers still looking for a first win since their promotion. There is a brace of games on Sunday with Monaleen facing Murroe- Boher in Cappamore and Knockainey meeting Ahane in Caherconlish.
