Hurling

National Hurling League

The National League would be Limerick’s worst of the decade as they managed to pick up only two wins, with those coming against Antrim and Kerry leaving them sixth in the table of seven.

Munster Hurling Championship

In the Munster quarter-final, Limerick were paired with 1998 All-Ireland semi-finalists Waterford in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

On the day, Paul Flynn would prove to be the difference as his tally of 1-8 helped Waterford to a 1-16 to 1-15 victory and ending Limerick’s campaign without a win for the second consecutive year.


Football

National Football League

Limerick were pitted in Group A of Division 2 for the 1998/1999 League campaign.

From their eight games, Limerick picked up a meagre brace of victories as they finished second from bottom.

Munster Football Championship

Limerick received a bye into the Munster semi-finals where they faced Cork in Pairc Ui Rinn.

The eventual Munster champions would prove far too strong for the Treaty side and ran away with a 4-13 to 1-6 win.


Club Championships

Hurling

Ahane regained their crown with a replay victory over Kilmallock in an ill-tempered affair at the Gaelic Grounds.

A late rally from Kilmallock secured the replay after Ahane looked set for two-in-a-row.

The Ollie Moran side made no mistake the second time around as they won out 0-14 to 2-5.

Murroe Boher earned promotion to the senior ranks with a win in the IHC.

Patrickswell’s second side picked up Junior A honours while Cappamore were crowned Junior B Champions.

Football

In the Limerick SFC, Ballylanders bridged an 82 year gap to their previous triumph as the defeated Hospital Herbertstown 1-15 to 0-9 in the Gaelic Grounds.

Noel Frewen notched the games only goal after three minutes with ‘Lander leading at half-time 1-10 to 0-4.

The victory came just 12 months after they had been crowned Intermediate Champions.

Their successors in the IFC were West side Dromcollogher Broadford as they also won a second successive promotion.

Croom were crowned Junior champions with Knockaderry winning out the Junior B competition.
