Caoimhe Costelloe top scored for Limerick with 2-6, as Pat Ryan’s side led 2-10 to 0-7 at the interval. Costelloe instinctively flicked to the net for her first green flag before dispatching a penalty high to the net for her second.

Limerick had five scorers while debutant Áine Cunningham impressed following her promotion from the junior side. They outscored Clare 2-6 to 0-4 between the 15th minute and half time.

Rebecca Delee was also on target, returning after 15 months to the Limerick side, owing to a cruciate knee injury sustained against Tipperary.
