Munster Senior Hurling Final – Limerick 0-24 Cork 0-15

Limerick defeated Cork by 0-24 to 0-15 in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship Final on Sunday July 14th at Gaelic Grounds Limerick.

Day of joy sends tremor through Treaty

Limerick 0-24 Cork 0-15

By Diarmuid O’Flynn for the Irish Examiner newspaper

When Limerick captain Donal O’Grady lifted the Munster SHC Cup at the Gaelic Grounds yesterday, such was the almighty deep-throated roar with which it was greeted that those of us still in the overhead gantry could feel a tremor run through the Mackey Stand. A roar of celebration, yes, but also a roar of relief, an end to 17 years of crushing frustration in Munster. Ciarán Carey was the last Limerick captain to lift the same trophy, back in 1996, the year of his famous point against Clare in the semi-final. This one has been a long time coming and despite the fact Cork played the entire second half with just 14 men, boy was it convincing! A tremor surely ran through hurling also because — whisper it — the winds of change are starting to blow. Kilkenny, Tipperary, Galway and Cork have been forced to take the low road as Limerick and Dublin, both of whom operating in Division 1B this year, are the new provincial champions. Who would have forecast that at the start of this electric hurling season?

It was another epic Munster final occasion with 42,730 fans crammed into one of the great hurling venues on another sweltering afternoon. Unfortunately it wasn’t an epic contest, nor yet epic hurling. An incident in the final seconds of the first half saw to the former. Cork free-taker and star inside-forward Patrick Horgan red-carded for a careless swing that made contact — albeit light — with the helmet of Paudie O’Brien. Unfortunately for Patrick the dropping ball made simultaneous contact with Paudie’s face leaving the Kilmallock-man prone on the deck. Referee James McGrath initially looked like he was going to do nothing about the incident but then went straight for red. Technically correct but oh-so-harsh. With the game tied at 0-10 each at the break and now facing into the wind, it left Cork with a mountain to climb in the second half.

Mind you that needn’t have been the case and wouldn’t have been the case had the Rebels capitalised on all the opportunities they created in a dominant opening period. It wasn’t just the strong breeze at their backs, though that was a factor, Cork were hurling with far more authority than a nervous-looking home side in that period but hit 10 wides and spurned two good goal-scoring chances. Team captain Pa Cronin led the way for the visitors, as he did all game with two excellent points; Horgan had four (three frees) and was looking very sharp in the left corner while Seamus Harnedy was having another strong outing with two valuable points from the edge of the square.

Limerick meanwhile were relying on free-taker Declan Hannon (five points, four frees) to do most of their scoring though flying corner-forwards Graeme Mulcahy and Seanie Tobin chipped in with a point apiece, powerhouse centre-forward James Ryan, a popular choice as man of the match, with another. Oh but the wides for Cork. All six forwards off target at one stage or another with missed opportunities they would come to rue. Even in the absence of Horgan, for 25 minutes of the second half Cork still managed to almost keep pace with Limerick. It was a time for heroic defence and up stepped Stephen McDonnell, Shane O’Neill and Conor O’Sullivan in the full-back line with wing-backs Tom Kenny and William Egan also doing well.

None was more prominent for Cork in this period though than captain Cronin. Through sheer force of will he dragged Cork back into the game, only two points behind in the 59th minute (0-17 to 0-15). On this day, however, Limerick were not going to be denied. Half-back trio Paudie O’Brien, Wayne McNamara and Gavin O’Mahony threw up the first wall of defence; Stephen Walsh, Richie McCarthy, outstanding again, and Tom Condon closed up shop behind with keeper Nickie Quaid organising everything. Midfielders Paul Browne and captain Donal O’Grady took command and the Limerick points began to flow. Seven in a row they notched to close out a glorious win, subs Shane Dowling (three), Kevin Downes (two) and their former teacher at Árdscoil Rís Niall Moran (one) to the fore. It leaves manager John Allen with a selection dilemma for the All-Ireland semi-final but what a delicious dilemma to have!

Scorers for Limerick: D Hannon (0-8, 5 frees, 1 s/l), J Ryan, S Dowling (0-3 each), G Mulcahy, S Tobin, K Downes (0-2 each), P O’Brien, P Browne, S Hickey, N Moran (0-1 each).

Limerick end 17-year wait for Munster title

Report from the GAA.ie web site

Munster GAA Hurling Senior Championship Final: Limerick 0-24 Cork 0-15

Limerick claimed their 19th Munster title and their first since 1996 with a comprehensive defeat of Cork at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick on Sunday. Limerick’s win simply added to the sense that the 2013 championship has been a transformative one, as they joined Leinster champions Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-finals. “It’s been 17 years and today is the day that it finally comes home,” Limerick captain Donal O’Grady said after accepting the Munster Cup. “The hunger that was there today, I knew and we knew that we would not be beaten.”

After an even first half, the sides were locked at 0-10 apiece at the break, but crucially Cork had Pa Horgan sent off in added time and they played the second half a man down and against the breeze. Limerick started very well and were 0-4 to 0-1 ahead early on. They even missed a goal chance through David Breen, who flashed a shot wide of Anthony Nash’s goal. But Cork hit back to move 0-5 to 0-4 ahead and they dominated the second quarter, hitting nine wides and squandering two excellent goal chances in the process. Declan Hannon levelled matters with his fifth score of the afternoon in first half added time to punish Cork’s profligacy, before the Rebels were dealt a huge blow when Horgan was shown a straight red card.

The opening stages of the second half were even enough, but Cork were really struggling when Shane Dowling came off the bench to set up Hannon for a super point, before Dowling himself and then James Ryan added further scores to move the home side 0-17 to 0-12 ahead. Credit to Cork, though, they hit back, with Séamus Harnedy landing his third from play and then Cathal Naughton and Pa Cronin chipped in with scores to reduce the gap to two, 0-17 to 0-15, with 10 minutes remaining. However, Limerick were revitalised by the introduction of Dowling and Kevin Downes off the bench, and they hit seven points in a row in the final 10 minutes to seal a comfortable win. Séamus Hickey started that purple patch, Hannon landed a glorious sideline cut and Dowling and Downes knocked over two points each. Niall Moran, another sub, completed the scoring at the death.

Cork Scorers: D Kearney 0-1, P Horgan 0-4 (0-2f), S Harnedy 0-3, L O’Farrell 0-1, P Cronin 0-3, J Coughlan 0-2 (0-2f), C Naughton 0-1.

Limerick Scorers: P O’Brien 0-1, D Hannon 0-8 (0-5f, 0-1 SL), J Ryan 0-3, G Mulcahy 0-1, P Browne 0-1, S Tobin 0-2, G Mulcahy 0-2, S Hickey 0-1, K Downes 0-2, S Dowling 0-2, N Moran 0-1.

Useful Information

The 2013 Munster Senior Hurling Final will be the third occasion that Cork and Limerick have met in a Munster Final hosted at a Limerick venue. Cork have won the previous finals in Limerick soil in 1919 and 1975.

Limerick have won just one of their last ten Munster Finals versus Cork dating back to 1944. That sole victory came in the 1980 Final with Limerick winning by 2-14 to 2-10 in Semple Stadium Thurles. Limerick subsequently lost the All-Ireland Final to Galway.

Limerick’s last victory over Cork in a Munster Championship game was on May 27th 2001 in a Quarter-Final played at Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Limerick 1-16 Cork 1-15.

Limerick have won 18 Munster titles with 5 of those victories against Cork. Limerick’s other Munster Senior Hurling titles have come at the expense of Tipperary (6), Clare (5), Waterford (2).

The last time neither Tipperary nor Waterford appeared in the Munster senior hurling final was 1999, when Cork beat Clare by 1-15 to 0-14.

Cork will concede home advantage to their opponents in both Munster Senior Finals. The last occasion this happened was in 2006 when Cork defeated Tipperary in the Hurling Final by 2-14 to 1-14 in Thurles while their Footballers drew with Kerry (0-10 to 0-10) in Fitzgerald Stadium Killarney before winning the replay at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
