Earlier this week we asked the Limerick public to tell us what their favourite Limerick games of the past 20 years were.
From the list of games we were told we compiled a list of the Top 16 which will battle it out to be crowned the counties favourite game this century.
Our Top 16 Bracket was released on Saturday and can be seen here.
Our fifth Last-16 pairing is live now and can be voted on on our Twitter and Instagram pages!
This pits Limerick’s 2013 Munster Final win over Cork against the 2012 All-Ireland Qualifier win against Clare.
Limerick’s Munster Final win over Cork brought joyous scenes around the county as the Treaty celebrated a first Munster title win since 1996.
On a scorching hot day in the Gaelic Grounds the sides played out a a tense first half with the teams heading into the break deadlocked at 0-10 apiece.
However, a red card to Patrick Horgan in the final seconds of the first half proved the catalyst for a comprehensive Limerick win as the county erupted to celebrate a first trophy in seventeen years.
Prior to the 2013, Limerick were on a barren run of form. The decade ranging from 2002-2011 saw Limerick pick up just two championship wins against tier one sides with both those coming in the 2007 season.
The start to 2012 was innocuous as Limerick squandered a five-point lead against Tipp in Munster to face into the qualifiers.
Here they overcame Laois and Antrim easily before taking on Davy Fitz’s Clare in Semple Stadium.
Limerick’s ruthlessness in front of goal would prove the difference as Wayne McNamara, Seanie Tobin and Declan Hannon finding the net in a pulsating game that would set up a tie with All-Ireland champions Kilkenny in the All-Ireland quarter-final.
