Mulcahy the heroine as Limerick overcome Waterford

Limerick edged Waterford in a titanic tussle at Dr Cullen Park to return to the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland intermediate final.

Last year’s beaten finalists had to dig deep to dispense with the challenge of a team that had proved a bogey side in recent seasons.

Niamh Mulcahy played a big role in the victory. The 24-year-old contributed seven points in the 0-9 to 0-8 win, with the long-serving Aoife Sheehan and minor star Caoimhe Costelloe completing the tally.

It was a devastating loss for Waterford, who contributed so much to a stirring encounter.

Limerick will play Kilkenny in the final on September 14 after the Cats beat Kildare 1-16 to 0-7. The Noresiders held the upper hand throughout and went in at the break leading by 0-9 to 0-4. Perhaps the key moment arrived two minutes after the resumption, when Melissa Lyons’ penalty was saved by Catherine Foley. The winners put the game to bed with a flurry that produced a goal and six points.

Mary O’Connell provided the exclamation mark on a professional display by finding the Kildare net on the hour.
