Football

National Football League

Limerick were pitted in Division D for the 1998 National Football League. In Paddy Mulvihills first year in charge, the league was once again riddled in losses as they picked up a solitary win in their 8 games as they were resigned for the restructured Division 2 for 1999.

Munster Football Championship

Tipperary and Limerick were pitted against one another in the Gaelic Grounds for the second consecutive year.

Once more there was little to seperate the sides but the Premier County would come away with the victory with Declan Browne’s 1-6 proving the difference between the sides.

In the end Tipp ran out 1-13 to 1-12 winners on the Ennis Road.


Hurling

National Hurling League

Reigning champions Limeric were in imperious form in the group stage of the league winning each of their five games.

During that course they accounted for Offaly, Clare, Galway, Antrim and Dublin.

Those wins saw them into a semi-final where Waterford proved too strong winning out 2-17 to 2-11.

Munster Hurling Championship

Limerick were drawn to face League champions Cork in the quarter-finals of Munster in the Gaelic Grounds.

Despite outscoring their opponents three goals to one, Cork came away with a 3-11 to 1-20 win to end Limerick’s season.

It was the first time since 1993 that the hurlers had failed to pick up a championship win.
