Share this article


All Ireland and League hurling champions Limerick have been beaten.  On their first appearance of the championship, the Shannonsiders went down by 1-26 to 1-19 to Cork in their Munster senior championship round robin game at the Gaelic Grounds.

A fantastic defensive performance and a vital second half goal by Patrick Horgan made the difference for Cork.

Limerick led by 2 points at half time, but they couldn't live with the marvellous work rate and pace on show from the visitors, who could afford 8 wides.

So the Leesiders have recovered from their opening day defeat to Tipperary and Limerick now need to beat Waterford.

Talking of Tipperary, Liam Sheedy's men made it 2 wins from 2.

The Premier county beat Waterford by 2-30 to 18 points at Semple Stadium.

Conor Gleeson was sent off in the first half for Waterford and Tipperary took full advantage of the extra man.

Jason Forde and Seamus Callanan found the net for the Premier county in the second half.

 

In Leinster, Sean Moran's free in stoppage time earned Dublin a draw against Wexford in their round robin encounter at Parnell Park.

It ended Dublin 1-22 Wexford 2-19.  Dublin were 5 points up in the second half, but goals by Liam Og McGovern and Rory O'Connor nearly grabbed the win for Davy Fitzgerald's men on their first excursion.

The Dubs have 1 point on the board after two games.

Kilkenny defeated Carlow by 3-22 to 1-14 at Netwatch Cullen Park to maintain their 100 percent record.

Colin Fennelly, Ger Aylward and TJ Reid rattled the net for the Cats.

 

Galway are into the Connacht senior football championship final.

The Tribesmen defeated Sligo by 3-11 to 7 points at Markievicz Park.

Liam Silke, Johnny Heaney and Martin Farragher scored second half goals for the Tribesmen, who will now face Mayo or Roscommon.

 

Armagh edged Down by 2-17 to 3-13 after extra time in their Ulster senior football championship quarter final in Newry.

Andrew Murnin made all the difference in the additional period by hitting 1-1 for the Orchard county.

Cavan will be their next opponents in the last four.
