Jimmy Lee’s men won by the minimum in the TUS Gaelic Grounds, with Mungret St Paul’s getting past Dromcollogher Broadford to gain promotion.
Newcastle West retained their Limerick Senior Football title for the third year in a row, as they once again defeated Adare in the showpiece event.
Jimmy Lee’s men won by the minimum in the TUS Gaelic Grounds, scoring three goals in a spirited display, having fell behind early on.
Adare’s impressive start was not enough to see them over the line, as the west side began to turn the goalscoring screw on the verge of half-time.
Two goals in quick succession saw Lee’s side lead by a point at the break, and they fired their third just minutes into the second-half.
It means that Newcastle West have their third SFC title in a row, and their fifth in the last nine years.
Elsewhere, in the Intermediate championship, Mungret St Paul’s defeated Dromcollogher Broadford in Askeaton to be crowned 2023 Limerick IFC champions.
Kevin O’Hagan’s side were never under much pressure in the tie, and their second-half goal put them firmly in control.
Five points the difference between the sides in the end, and Mungret will be playing Senior football in 2024.
It has been a successful year for the club at a number of grades, and that was highlighted as they also ran out winners in the Junior A championship over the weekend, easing past Camogue Rovers in the final.
They put 2-16 on the board to pick up a comfortable 15-point victory.
