WATCH: Kilmallock and Patrickswell earn wins as Limerick SHC gets underway

The Credit Union sponsored 2018 Limerick Senior Hurling Championship commenced this weekend with  Kilmallock and Patrickswell opening their season’s with comfortable wins from their Group 1 games.

Kilmallock faced Ballybrown in the first game at the Ennis Road venue and came out victorious on a 1-24 to 0-14 scoreline.

John Brudair’s side led by five points at half time and sealed the game in the final stages when Oisin O’Reilly netted the game’s only goal.

Highlights of the game via eirSport are below

In the second game in Group 1 at the Gaelic Grounds, Patrickswell had a routine victory from their outing, beating Adare 3-24 to 3-10.

Two goals from Seanie O’Brien and one from Aaron Gillane had Gary Kirby’s side in full control of the game and although Declan Hannon (twice) and Willie Griffin raised green flags for Adare, it was as comfortable a victory as the scoreline suggests.

The championship season got underway on Friday night in Caherconlish when Monaleen overcame a three point half deficit to beat Knockainey 0-20 to 0-16 in their Group 2 contest.

On Saturday evening in Group 2, Ahane needed three injury time points from Tom Morrissey to see off east neighbours Cappamore 0-14 to 0-11.

The first round action continues on Sunday with 2017 champions Na Piarsaigh opening their defence of the Daly Cup against Doon at the Gaelic Grounds. The weekend’s games are concluded at 6pm when Murroe-Boher and South Liberties clash in Cappamore.
