PREVIEW | Limerick JAFC winners Castlemahon begin Munster journey against Waterford’s Shamrocks

Castlemahon defeated neighbours Feenagh-Kilmeedy 3-10 to 0-7 last weekend to win the Limerick JAFC title.

For the first time since 2013, Castlemahon have a provincial championship journey to look forward to as they host Shamrocks in the Munster Championship quarter-final this Saturday.

It was a comprehensive final win to say the least for Castlemahon who were seven points to the good by half-time. They added a further two goals in the second half to put the game to bed and bring the Limerick JAFC title back for the first time since 2013.

Their Munster quarter-final opponents were victorious in their Waterford JFC final bout with St. Molleran’s a fortnight ago, with the score ending 3-11 to 1-6. It was an incredible fifth consecutive junior final for Shamrock’s who had fallen short on each occasion until their victory this year.
