CAPPAMORE are back on the search of Munster junior club glory this Sunday (2.00) when they travel to Borrisokane to play the Tipperary side in the Munster club JAFC quarter-final.

Last year they lost the provincial JAHC final to Charleville but this time round they are on football duty in the Munster club JAFC quarter-final.

Cappamore are led by player-manager Diarmuid Sheehy.

The former inter-county full back will be joined in the east Limerick line-up by his brothers Sean and Brian.

They are likely to include six players that were also regulars in last season’s hurling team; John Ryan; Declan Deere; Bill Creamer, Andy Murphy, Conor Sheehan and Tommy O’Donoghue.

The men in green and gold are captained by full back Paul Leahy, who has his brothers Brian and Niall also involved.

Borrisokane will be backboned by players that have contested the last two Tipperary SFC finals with amalgamation team Thomas McDonaghs. Their stand-out player will be inter-county man Philip Austin.

If Cappamore win on Sunday they would secure a November 25 ‘home’ semi-final against Clare’s, Clarecastle.

Included in the Clarecastle team would be Ciaran O’Dywer, formerly of Kilmallock.

Last year Limerick junior champions St Marys Sean Finns also faced north Tipperary opposition but they lost to Kildangan by two points.

Prior to that both Bruree (2010) and Mountcollins (2009) both reached Munster finals - losing to Kerry opposition.
