So, job done on the double for John Kiely's impressive charges today as they refuse to relinquish either their league or Munster championship crowns.


The prize for the winners is a Munster semi-final meeting with All-Ireland champions Tipperary at Pairc Ui Chaoimh next weekend, while they are also crowned national hurling league winners for the second year running. Clare go into the Qualifiers.


Munster SHC quarter-final full time: Limerick 0-36 Clare 1-23

The sides were level eight times in the first half and it was all-square at the break, but the Treaty County stepped on the gas after the resumption to power to an emphatic ten-point victory. Thirty-six scores is astonishing (the second-most ever in a championsip match) and I believe they had eleven different scorers.
