AIB Munster GAA Hurling Intermediate Club Championship Quarter Final – Effin (Limerick) 0-13 Dunhill (Waterford) 1-4

Laboured Dunhill fall at first provincial hurdle

By Thomas Keane for the Munster Express newspaper

Effin (Limerick) 0-13; Dunhill 1-4

Waterford clubs’ poor run of results in the Munster Club Intermediate Hurling Championship continued at Walsh Park on Sunday last when Dunhill were well-beaten by Effin. Effin’s full-forward proved to be the main difference between the sides in this game. Thomas Quaid throughout the day was impeccable with his striking of frees. Over the course of the hour he hit nine in total, a tally which in no small part in securing victory for his side.

Next Round – the winners play Aherlow (Tipperary) in the Munster Club Semi-Final on Sunday November 6th at 2:00pm in Kilmallock.
