JUST a week after their heroics against Tipperary in the Munster SHC, members of the Limerick senior hurling team were back on form over the weekend in the Limerick SHC and IHC.

Twenty three were involved with senior clubs, while another five played in the intermediate grade.

Crucially it appears all of the players who featured against Tipperary will return to inter-county training unscathed.

However, there will be concern over substitute Adrian Breen. The attacker was forced off injured in the early stages of Na Piarsiagh’s defeat to Doon with a shoulder injury.

Seanie Tobin

Hit 1-11 of Murroe-Boher’s 1-15 in their three-point win over Knockainey. The inter-county corner forward scored 1-4 from play

Seamus Hickey

He lined out in midfield in Murroe-Boher’s 1-15 to 0-15 win over Knockainey. Played the full hour but didn’t score

Declan Hannon

The U-21 player hit 2-8 in Adare’s 3-22 to 0-11 win over Bruree - 2-4 of his total came from play

Wayne McNamara

The inter-county centre back played in midfield as Adare steam rolled Bruree in the opening half and ran out easy 20-point winners

Paudie O’Brien

Started midfield for Kilmallock against Ballybrown and got a brilliant goal in the opening minute of their three-point win

Graeme Mulcahy

Scored a brilliant second half goal for Kilmallock but was very tightly marked by Mikey Kiely of Ballybrown.

Gavin O’Mahony

Kilmallock had Limerick wing back Gavin O’Mahony in the unusual role of centre forward. He scored a point and created a goal but didn’t look fully comfortable at centre-forward

Kevin Downes

The Limerick sub scored 2-1 from play in Na Piarsaigh’s loss to Doon. He cracked home the goals brilliantly but was quiet over the course of the hour

Shane Dowling

Notched 1-5 for Na Piarsaigh but just two points came from play from his wing forward role. Crashed home an excellent goal from a 21-metre free early in the second half

David Breen

Lined out centre forward and scored an early point but wasn’t prominent throughout the contest, which Doon bossed for long periods

Cathal King

King came on as a sub for Limerick and was midfield for Na Piarsaigh but couldn’t stem the tide against a hugely motivated Doon side

Alan Dempsey

The Limerick sub was wing back and one of the better players for the 2011 champions Na Piarsaigh

Adrian Breen

Was forced off injured at the end of the opening half and had failed to score in his 29 minutes on the field

Nickie Quaid

The Limerick goalkeeper lined out at centre back for his club Effin and dominated as they eased to a 2-16 to 1-3 win over Hospitel-Herbertstown

Thomas Quaid

The Limerick sub scored 0-7 (six frees and a ‘65) from full forward for Effin

Niall Moran

The Limerick sub lined out in midfield for Ahane and scored from play as they beat Garryspillane 1-15 to 1-12

James Ryan

The Limerick centre forward was in midfield for Garryspillane in their loss to Ahane. He is one of those that will be involved in Limerick SFC this weekend

Thomas Ryan

The Limerick sub sparkled at wing back for South Liberties in their slender win over Croom on Sunday evening

Shane O’Neill

Limerick substitute corner back was centre back for South Liberties in their 0-11 to 0-10 win over Croom and helped restrict Croom to just four scores from play

Mark Carmody

Started in midfield for Patrickswell and was among their scorers in their blitz of Granagh-Ballingarry.

Donal O’Grady

The Limerick captain started in midfield for his club Granagh-Ballingarry but was powerless to stop Patrickswell cruising to a 3-16 to 0-8 win

Aaron Murphy

The Limerick sub goalie was between the posts for Hospital-Herbertstown and not at fault for the goals that passed him in a 2-16 to 1-3 defeat to Effin

Conor Allis

The Limerick sub scored 0-8 for Croom. Six of his scores came from frees but it wasn’t enough to stop Croom falling to a 0-11 to 0-10 loss to South Liberties

Stephen Walsh

The Limerick corner back was centre back for Glenroe as they remained unbeaten in the IHC thanks to a 1-12 to 0-9 win over Mungret

Tom Condon

The Limerick corner back was centre back as Knockaderry got their first win in the IHC with a 1-14 to 0-11 win over Pallasgreen

Richie McCarthy

The Limerick full back was centre back as his club side Blackrock were 2-15 to 0-9 winners over Monaleen in the IHC

Paul Browne

The Limerick midfielder was midfield for his club as Bruff side were 3-13 to 3-9 winners over Dromin-Athlacca in the IHC. Browne scored a point from play

David Reidy

The Limerick sub started centre forward as Dromin-Athlacca were beaten 3-13 to 3-9 by Bruff in the IHC. Reidy scored two goals from 21-metre frees but wasn’t largely involved.
