Limerick capture 2017 Minor Cup

Limerick captured the Minor Cup after defeating Tipperary County by 4 wickets in an exciting final in Adare on Saturday. Man of the Match was 14 year old Carl Neinaber who took 3-26 off 8 overs. This was Limerick's 33rd Munster Title and this win will bring joy to the dedicated players and officers on Shannon side following their Senior Cup defeat to Cork County two weekends ago.

Much credit must go to the Limerick Club for hosting the final in Adare which was in great condition. The Minor Cup was presented by MCU President, Michael Hickey to Limerick captain, Kevin Hennessy.
