Adare produced an highly impressive 3-9 to 0-8 victory over Dromcollogher-Broadford in their football semi-final clash on Sunday to book their final place.

Two first half goals from Mark Connolly and Mikey Lyons paved the way for their side, while a late Robbie Bourke finish put the game beyond all doubt.

Despite only being promoted to senior ranks last year, they have now carried that winning momentum right through to a county final clash, which will see them take on Newcastle West on October 22. Throw-in is scheduled for 4pm, with Mungret and Monaleen competing for the minor title earlier in the day.

While in the hurling, Kilmallock knocked out reigning champions and Limerick’s most decorated side, Patrickswell, in a comprehensive eight point victory, on a scoreline of 1-18 to 0-13.

Kilmallock started the brighter of the sides and raised their green flag within the opening two minutes courtesy of Micheal Houlihan.

The goal would prove the difference between the sides going in at the half-time interval and in the second half Kilmallock pushed on, in particularly from sharpshooter Eoin Ryan who landed 11 points for his side.

Na Piarsaigh now await Kilmallock in the final which is penciled in for two weeks time on October 15 in a repeat of the 2014 final.

While Ahane captured the senior hurling County Cup, with U-21 Limerick captain leading the way hitting 1-12 for the winners.

They overcame South Liberties in a hard fought contest by 1-24 to 1-17 to take the crown.
