Brave Limerick Minors come up short in All-Ireland.
Despite a brave display there was no joy for the Limerick minor hurlers in Sunday’s (4th Sept 2016) All Ireland MHC Final in Croke Park. Tipperary ended up 1-21 to 0-17 winners to maintain a Limerick wait for an Irish Press Cup victory that stretches back to 1984. This 2016 final defeats adds to those of 2005 and 2014.
When these sides met in the Munster final, Tipperary were 17-point winners but this time round Limerick went toe-to-toe with their neighbours. An early second half goal powered Tipperary to the victory.
Tipperary also won the Senior title with an impressive 2-29 to 2-20 win over Kilkenny.
