Munster SFC Q-Final – Clare 0-15 Limerick 0-13

Clare defeated Limerick by 0-15 to 0-13 in the Munster Senior Football Championship Quarter-Final on Saturday May 23rd at Cusack Park Ennis.

Munster SFC: Clare hang on to beat Limerick


Clare edged into a Munster Football Championship semi-final meeting with Cork next month after suffering a real scare against neighbours Limerick at Cusack Park.

The hosts looked to be cruising at half-time with a 0-9 to 0-4 lead until Limerick brought a real fight to the contest after the restart spearheaded by Ian Ryan and Peter Nash.

But two late scores from Clare substitute Cathal McInerney proved the difference to send his side into the last four and dispatch Limerick to the qualifiers.

In the opening half Clare started brightest with skipper Gary Brennan embarking on a solo run and fisting over inside the opening 20 seconds.

Robert Browne got Limerick off the mark at the other end before Clare’s best goal chance of the half arrived when Shane Brennan’s low drive was well saved by Brian Scanlan.

Ian Ryan then gave Limerick the lead as Clare’s Eoin Cleary, Pádraic Collins and Shane Brennan were all guilty of kicking wides; but they got away with it as the Banner still managed five scores on the trot.

Eoin Cleary fisted over before Shane and Gary Brennan stretched Clare’s lead, with Limerick starting to give the ball away very cheaply.
Cathal O’Connor’s pointed 45 was followed by Pádraic Collins’ first point of the evening which received a huge roar from the Clare faithful inside Cusack Park.

Limerick finally ended a 20-minute scoring drought when goalkeeper Scanlon dispatched a free but Clare responded with three more unanswered points through Cleary and a double from skipper Brennan to bring his personal tally to 0-4.
Scanlan fired over a 45 for John Brudair’s charges in stoppage time at the end of the half to make it 0-9 to 0-4, with the hosts in firm control of the contest.

But Limerick greatly improved after the restart and despite falling six behind when Jamie Malone scored early on, they would manage to get within a point of their neighbours.

Peter Nash, Stephen Cahill, Ian Ryan and Iain Corbett and Cian Sheehan all contributed to Limerick’s fine revival as Clare were suddenly on the ropes and badly needed a score.

That score eventually came from Rory Donnelly before Ryan kept Limerick just a point behind once more, and David McInerney and Scanlan swapped scores from placed balls to set up a tense finish.

As Limerick fought bravely for a leveller, McInerney popped up again at the death to dispel any chances of a replay by firing over and dragging his side over the line and end a cracking second half of football.

Scorers for Clare: Gary Brennan 0-4, Eoin Cleary, Rory Donnelly and Cathal McInerney (0-1f) 0-2 each, Jamie Malone, Paraic Collins, Cathal O’Connor (0-1 45), Shane Brennan and Sean Collins 0-1 each.

Scorers for Limerick: Ian Ryan 0-4 (0-2f), Brian Scanlan 0-3 (0-1f, 0-2 45), Peter Nash 0-2, Iain Corbett, Robert Browne, Stephen Cahill and Cian Sheehan 0-1 each.

It was level at 1-5 each early in the second half before Limerick took control to run out eight-point winners.
