The opening game to the new-look Munster senior hurling championship finished with a 1-23 to 2-14 victory for John Kiely’s men in front of 20,423.

The sides were level on 15 occasions before Limerick finished strongly with six of the last seven scores – including a 67th minute goal from sub Barry Murphy.

Limerick had nine different scorers in the victory with Aaron Gillane chipping in with eight (six from frees). Both Graeme Mulcahy and Tom Morrissey hit three points each from play.
