Munsters, Shannon and Garryowen back in league action

AFTER a well deserved Christmas break, the Energia All-Ireland League makes a welcome return next Saturday.

Of Limerick’s three top-flight teams, Young Munster currently fare best with six wins from nine starts to sit around mid-table in Division 1A.

Prior to the break, The Cookies enjoyed their most significant victory of the season at the expense of previously unbeaten Terenure College at Tom Clifford Park.

That win was secured with terrific second-half tries from Shay McCarthy, Dan Walsh, and an in-form Paulo Leleisiuao. 

At the weekend, Gearoid Prendergast’s side are at Lakelands to face leaders Terenure College, while seventh place Shannon have Lansdowne as visitors to Coonagh with a 2.30pm kick-off and Garryowen have a tough assignment against Clontarf in Dooradoyle at 2pm.
