630

Limerick v Clare - GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Semi-FinalLIMERICK were dumped out of the All Ireland championship this afternoon by Clare. A seven point defeat, 1-22 to 0-18, was a flattering scoreline for Limerick as Clare dominated from start to finish. A 12th minute goal from Darach Honan started Clare off on a huge performance in which Limerick did not ever really get going. Clare will now meet Cork on September the 8th in the All Ireland final.
