Limerick’s Matthew Fitzgerald chosen on Minor Hurling Team of the Year

The Monaleen native is selected at midfield and is Limerick’s sole representative on the team.

Limerick’s Matthew Fitzgerald has been named on the Electric Ireland Minor Hurling team of the year following a string of fine displays in the provincial championships this year.

The Monaleen native is selected at midfield and is Limerick’s sole representative on the team after they were beaten in the semi-finals by the eventual All-Ireland champions Clare.

He is the only player that didn’t reach the All-Ireland semi-finals to be named on the team. Fitzgerald started each of Limerick’s five games between midfield and wing forward, scoring a brace of points in the Thurles win over Tipperary.
