Cork hurling legend Tomás Mulcahy has hit out at fans for booing Limerick star Cian Lynch during Saturday’s National Hurling League meeting between the sides at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

The two-time Hurler of the Year was making his first appearance for the Treaty since last summer’s All-Ireland semi-final win over Galway.

Upon his introduction as a second-half substitute in Limerick’s defeat to the Rebels on Saturday night, some sections of the crowd appeared to boo the Patrickswell club-man.

Former All-Ireland winning captain with the Lee-siders, Mulcahy, took to Twitter to criticise the behaviour.

“Not good enough – Cork hurling people should never bow that low – what a player and ambassador he has been for our game and it was great to see him take the field again,” Mulcahy posted.

After an opening win under Pat Ryan, Cork now prepare for next weekend’s trip to Pearse Stadium to take on Galway as the Rebels bid to win the League for the first time since 1998.

Meanwhile, Limerick will host Clare in a repeat of last year’s Munster final.
