Kilmallock stay perfect while Mungret St Pauls and Ballybrown move clear in group two | SHC Round Up

There were some big results in the Senior Hurling Championship, with all 12 teams in action.

Thursday evening’s action saw wins for Patrickswell and Mungret St Paul’s in the Senior Hurling Championship, with a number of intercounty stars on show.

The Well edged Ahane by three points for a finish, with goals from Jordan Higgins and Aaron Gillane proving vital. Gillane’s goal in particular was truly special, a team move that passed through the hands of Cian Lynch, finished by the Hurler of the Year elect.

Despite the best efforts of Tom Morrissey, who scored a goal and kept his side in the game with frees, Ahane are facing a very tough test to get out of the group.

In group two, Mungret St Paul’s picked up a crucial win over Adare, to cement their place at the top of the pile.

Niall Mulcahy’s goal sent Mungret on their way, while Sam Hickey and the returning Declan Hannon found the net for Adare. A strong finish from the city club helped them to move onto five points from three games.

Friday evening saw KilmallockMonaleen and Ballybrown all pick up wins in the Senior Hurling Championship, with South Liberties and Garryspillane shipping heavy defeats.

Kyle Hayes’ Kildimo Pallaskenry ended up losing out to Kilmallock by seven points, the Balbec proving too strong for a finish in Newcastle West.

An early Shane O’Brien goal meant that Kilmallock were in control for majority of the game, although KP showed tremendous heart to remain in the game until the latter stages.

Na Piarsaigh proved much too strong for Doon when they met in the Senior Hurling Championship on Saturday, running out 19-point winners in front of the Limerick GAA TV cameras.

The defending champions fired four first-half goals, courtesy of Adrian Breen, Conor Boylan and Ronan Lynch.

The goal spree meant they held a 13-point lead at the interval, which they would build on in the second-half.

Boylan and Breen added some more fine scores after the break, as Na Piarsaigh eased their way to their third victory of the year.

Doon on the other hand are struggling, with just one win so far this year, and will be disappointed with their return.
