Kilmallock goal scorer Oisin O'Reilly
CHAMPIONS Na Piarsaigh and last year's finalists Kilmallock both sparkled in round four of the Credit Union Limerick SHC.
The duo, who have won seven of the last eight titles, were both 10-points winners in Saturday's Gaelic Grounds double-header.
The victories ensure both will advance to the knockout stages and could yet move directly to the semi finals in the final round games later this month.
Na Piarsaigh had a 2-19 to 0-15 win over Adare. Adrian Breen led the way with 1-5, while All Ireland winners Shane Dowling, Kevin Downes, Peter Casey and David Dempsey were also among the scores in the big win over an Adare side captained by Declan Hannon.
