BY SHANE STAPLETON
Limerick regained their All-Ireland title with an 11-point win over Waterford at Croke Park.

Performances for the ages from wing-forwards Tom Morrissey (0-5) and Gearoid Hegarty (0-7) gave the Deise too steep a hill to climb.

It was a complete performance from John Kiely’s side, as nine different players popped up with scores from play, while Waterford could must just 0-9 from play overall.

The scoreline was somewhat complimentary of the returning champions as Liam Cahill’s men pushed for goals in the latter stages, but there was little doubting the superiority of Limerick.
