7 pictures that show how happy the Limerick hurlers and fans are this evening

John Allen’s side defeated Tipperary in today’s Munster semi-final by three points.

FOR THE FIRST time since 2007, the Limerick hurlers will contest a Munster senior hurling final next month.

And they achieved that with a famous victory – their first in the province in six years – this afternoon over Tipperary in their semi-final clash.

John Allen’s Limerick team triumphed by 1-18 to 1-15 in the Gaelic Grounds and they were pretty happy with that victory after the game.
