WATERFORD STAR MAURICE Shanahan scored 1-9 as Lismore claimed the Munster Club IHC title at Mallow on Saturday afternoon.

With the sides level at half-time 0-7 each, the Waterford champions asserted themselves on the resumption, with Shanahan sending over a free for his fifth point before a long clearance found its way through to Peter O’Keeffe, who cleverly flicked the ball home.

That gave the Tony Browne-coached side a cushion they were never likely to relinquish but in the 40th minute Shanahan found the net, with a beautiful dink over Kilmoyley goalkeeper Aiden McCabe.

Shortly before the second goal, the Kerry senior champions’ captain McCabe had saved brilliantly to deny Jordan Shanahan a goal and in the first half he also produced a great stop from Dan Shanahan.

From the 65 that resulted, Shanahan’s brother Maurice pushed Lismore 0-4 to 0-2 in front but two points from Kilmoyley’s main man Daniel Collins had them level again. Collins would end up scoring all of Kilmoyley’s output, but crucially goal chances remained at a premium for them.

They battled hard in the first half though and though an excellent Maurice Shanahan free put Lismore 0-7 to 0-5 in front with half-time approaching, Collins had them level by half-time, their supporters giving them a standing ovation as they went in.

Lismore roared out of the blocks on the resumption though and always looked the likelier winners.

Scorers for Lismore: Maurice Shanahan 1-9 (0-6 frees, 0-1 65), Peter O’Keeffe 1-0, John Prendergast, Brendan Landers, Jack Prendergast, Dan Shanahan 0-1 each.

Scorer for Kilmoyley: Daniel Collins 0-13 (0-8 frees).
