Gary Morahan's charges enjoyed the better of the first-half exchanges and took a 0-10 to 0-7 lead into the break.

A 43rd minute Cathal O'Neill goal brought Limerick back into contention and the sides were level (0-13 to 1-10) with 10 minutes to go.

A James Power point edged Waterford ahead with two minutes of stoppage time played before Byrne and Corbett put the end result beyond any doubt.

Meanwhile, in Semple Stadium, Tipperary inflicted a 2-14 to 1-12 defeat on Clare in today's other round 4 fixture.

James Devaney top scored for the Premier County with a return of 0-7 all from placed balls while Cian O'Farrell and Sean Hayes netted their goals.
