MORE good news for Limerick hurling this Sunday with a first competitive appearance of the year for William O'Donoghue.
The inter-county star started and played a full game for champions Na Piarsaigh in the Bon Secours Hospital Limerick SHC. The Caherdavin men had a big win over South Liberties in O'Donoghue's comeback game.
O'Donoghue featured in the half back line and midfield for John Kiely's all-conquering heroes last season. He played in five of the eight games enroute to All-Ireland honours - making one start and playing most of the draw with Cork in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
O'Donoghue has missed all 10 competitive fixtures for Limerick in the 2019 season to-date but will now hope to push his way into John Kiely's plan for the Munster championship.
Last October O'Donoghue captained Na Piarsaigh to Limerick championship glory and November's Munster club final loss to Ballygunner was his last competitive appearance but injury.
His four month injury lay-off came to an end this Sunday with his Na Piarsaigh appearance.
His return comes 24-hours after Paul Browne made his first appearance in nine months. Limerick used 34 players already this season but Browne and O'Donoghue will bolster options for the Munster SHC.
