Offaly v Limerick @ St Rynaghs, Banagher

Limerick 1-12 Offaly 0-13

Limerick began 2019 on a bright note, as they edged Offaly in a closely contested affair at St. Rynagh’s GAA Club in Banagher.

Limerick took an early 0-3 to 0-1 lead, and despite a determined Offaly display, wind assisted Shannonsiders edged a 1-6 to 0-8 interval lead.
Caoimhe Costello was superb from placed balls throughout, as Limerick held out for a two-point win.
