Monaleen overcome Na Piarsaigh in top tier while Pallasgreen, Galbally and NCW also pick up the win

Na Piarsaigh did reduce the gap to four in the second period but Cusack’s goal gave Monaleen a cushion as they ran out comfortable winners in the end.

The Limerick Football championships kicked back into gear on Thursday evening with four games across the top three tiers.

In the Senior Championship, Monaleen were 2-12 to 0-10 winners over Na Piarsaigh in Claughaun. It puts the City men level on points with Adare atop the table, although the West men have a game in hand having won the round one encounter between them.

On Thursday evening, Daniel Daly and Shane Cusack had goals in either half as they led from pillar to post. Despite a straight red for Paul O’Shea early in the first half, Monaleen held a commanding 1-8 to 0-2 lead at the break.

Na Piarsaigh did reduce the gap to four in the second period but Cusack’s goal gave them a cushion as they ran out comfortable winners in the end.

Elsewhere, Pallasgreen got their first win of the campaign with a 1-15 to 1-7 victory over Glin in group one of the Intermediate Championship while Galbally maintained their perfect start with a comfortable 4-13 to 2-4 result against Crecora Manister.

In the Premier Junior Championship Newcastle West were 2-8 to 0-5 victors over Cappamore.
