Limerick 2-6 (1-4) Cork 3-13 (2-6)

Munster U16 A Camogie Semi-Final

Sunday 8th March at 2.30 pm in Mahon, Cork

Limerick’s U16s fell short against a strong Cork side in Mahon on Sunday in the Munster U16 A semi-final.

In the first half Limerick team performed well while playing against a strong wind, with a strong defence restricting the Cork attack, while the forwards converted a limited supply of possession to ensure that they went in at half-time only 5 points behind.

The wind was less of a factor in the second half and Limerick fought back to leave the score with 10 min to play Limerick 2-5 Cork 2-7.

Limerick had a few goal chances at this stage, which unfortunately weren't converted. While Cork finished strongly scoring 1-6 in the last 10 minutes to run out comfortable winners by 3-13 to 2-6.

Limerick will look to build on what was, despite the loss, a very positive performance as they prepare for a meeting with Tipperary in the final of the A Shield in two weeks time. On the same day Limerick’s B team will face Cork B in the U16 B final.
