Tipperary Ladies prove too strong for Limerick in Intermediate Championship

Limerick unable to overcome a strong Tipperary side.

The Limerick ladies will have to go into the qualifiers in the All Ireland Intermediate Championship after losing to Limerick in their Munster Semi-final by 8-16 to 1-03.

Both teams had contrasting league seasons with Tipperary getting promoted from division 3 while Limerick went back down to division 4.

In fairness the difference between the two sides was in evidence from early on wth Tipperary taking control of the game in the early stages and not letting up.

For their part, Limerick struggled to stay competitive and will now face the qualifiers.

The Tipperary goals came courtesy of Evrena Everard, Sarah Everard, Mairead Morrissey and Roisin Howard.

Limerick managed to get points through Stephanie Nunan and Kristine Reidy. Aine McGrath scored their only goal on the day.

Despite the loss, some of Limerick’s league performances especially against Meath and Down will certainly give them hope that they can make an impression on the qualifiers.
