There were big wins today for Clare, Tipperary and Wexford but there was plenty of other action in the Allianz National Hurling League.

Ronan Lynch scored an eye-catching 3-11 as Limerick hammered Kerry 6-21 to 3-08 at the Gaelic Grounds.

The Shannonsiders bounced back from their opening defeat to Davy Fitzgerald's Wexford to claim a 22-point victory over Kerry.

However, Wexford remain in the driving seat for promotion to Division 1A having backed up their victory over Limerick with a brilliant two-point success in Galway on Sunday afternoon.

John Kiely’s Limerick had already beaten Kerry by 4-28 to 0-16 in the Munster senior hurling League so today's wide margin of victory was no great surprise.

In Division 2A, Kildare showed why there have been whispers of a hurling surge in the county when they recorded a 1-16 to 1-14 victory over seasoned Leinster Championship competitors Westmeath.

Both other games in Division 2A ended in draws. Armagh and London scored 1-13 apiece while there was also nothing to separate Carlow and Antrim (0-21 to 2-15).

In Division 3A, Tyrone ran out easy victors over Louth (5-16 to 0-12) while Monaghan squeezed past Donegal by a point in Castleblayney (1-21 to 3-14).

In Division 3B, Longford held off a spirited second-half fightback from Leitrim to record a three-point victory (2-19 to 3-13).
