CAOIMHE McGrath of Fr. Casey’s (Abbeyfeale) landed a brilliant six points as Limerick overcame a one point interval deficit to stun Fermanagh in the semi-final of the TG4 All-Ireland Junior Football Championship at Pearse Park, Longford.

Graham Shine-managed Limerick trailed 1-2 to 0-1 at half-timel and looked a beaten docket but were simply awesome on the restart and squeezed home by the narrowest of margins.

It was in sharp contrast to the semi-final outcome between the pair only last Summer, when Fermanagh breezed to victory.

Substitute McGrath of Fr. Casey’s (Abbeyfeale) landed six points.

Limerick last won this championship under the captaincy of Cathy Mee (Ballylanders) back in 2018. She knocked over two points in the weekend victory.
