Jack Ben Harnett of St Kierans

ST Kierans maintained their winning start to the Limerick SFC this Sunday evening.

Monaleen were also victorious, as round two of the championship was completed ahead of a break until July.

St Kierans were 1-10 to 0-8 winners over St Patricks in Askeaton.

After beating Ballysteen in round one, St Kierans were 1-3 to 0-4 ahead of St Patricks at half time.

John Doyle had the St Kierans goal, while St Patricks relied heavily on frees from John Mullane.

St Patricks lost to Newcastle West in round one and couldn’t find a way back in the second half with Sean McSweeney points keeping St Kierans on the road to another win.

Monaleen had a 1-9 to 0-7 win over St Senans.

72 hours after their draw with Na Piarsaigh, Monaleen were 0-6 to 0-2 ahead at half time.

Brian Carson had their goal nine minutes into the second half to leave it 1-8 to 0-2.

Back came St Senans with Richard Hayes kicking 0-6 (4frees) but with Carson and Luke Kavanagh among the scores, Monaleen held on for the win.

Earlier on Sunday, Glenroe were crowned Limerick U-21 13-a-side champions with a 1-13 to 1-6 win over Knockainey in Kilfinane.

It was 0-10 to 0-2 by half time.

Michael O’Grady had a Knockainey goal inside the first minute of the second half to try kick-start their title bid but a Darren McCarthy goal from a penalty had Glenroe 1-10 to 1-3 with 25-minutes to play.
