LIMERICK AND TIPPERARY are set for a pre-Christmas Munster hurling final showdown after the county’s minor teams won today’s semi-final clashes.

Limerick saw off Cork by 2-19 to 0-13 in Semple Stadium while Tipperary overcame Waterford by 2-13 to 0-12 in Páirc Uí Rinn.

The final will take place on Sunday 20 December at 1pm at a neutral venue which has still to be confirmed.

The Diarmuid Mullins-managed Limerick side were helped by a double goal blast by Adam English before the interval as they defeated Cork. The green flags raised by English helped Limerick go ahead 2-9 to 0-10 at the break and they took over in the second half. 

It was 2-15 to 0-11 in favour of Limerick at the three-quarter mark before they eventually ran out twelve-point victors. English hit 2-3 while Liam Lynch struck 0-7 for Limerick and Patrick O’Donovan grabbed 0-4. Ben Cunningham was top scorer for Cork with 0-8.

A late Kenny Lee goal helped Tipperary see off Waterford in their semi-final tie. That strike was the final score of the game and pushed them seven clear.
