Limerick produce champagne hurling with team goal against Clare

The flick. The run. The pass. The finish. What a goal from Limerick!

Limerick Clare

Limerick are up-and-running in the 2023 Allianz Hurling League, with a dominant 1-27 to 2-18 victory over Clare at the TUS Gaelic Grounds. It was their first League win over Liam MacCarthy Cup opposition since 2021.

The six-point margin at the end ultimately flattered the Banner County, with John Kiely’s charges in cruise control from a long way out.

Micheal Houlihan was the story of the game, with the Kilmallock man seizing his chance in the starting team, scoring 0-12 for the Treaty.

The All-Ireland champions wrapped up the two points on offer with a sublime team goal in the 66th minute of the match. Houlihan performed a delightful reverse flick-pass into the path of substitute Adam English, who collected possession on his own 65. The Doon man stormed right into the red zone, and selflessly picked out teammate Donnacha Ó Dálaigh, who rifled it into the net.

The victory has kick-started Limerick in the League, it would appear, and they looked far sharper on Saturday night than they have done in the springtime competition for quite some time.

Next up is a trip to Salthill next weekend, as they face Henry Shefflin’s Galway charges. Clare meanwhile must regroup for their visit to Chadwicks Wexford Park.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Waterford had too much for Laois despite playing the majority of the contest with 14 men. The Déise prevailed 2-31 to 2-19.

Further down the divisions, there were wins for Monaghan over Armagh, Cavan against Warwickshire and Leitrim vs Lancashire.
