Clare hit back with three unanswered frees to start the second half but Costello was on hand to stem the tide.

Aisling Scanlon had Limerick’s eleventh score shortly after but that was to be the Treaty sides final score of the half as the Banner grabbed five unanswered, the final two in injury time to steal the victory.
