Declan Hannon kept his nerve by registering four frees and one ’65 to help Mary Immaculate College eke past Limerick IT and into the Independent.ie Fitzgibbon Cup final.
The narrow win means Mary I will face UL in tomorrow’s final, but LIT made them fight tooth and nail in grim conditions for a shot at the champions. Mary I are now on the cusp of a first ever Fitzgibbon title.
Eamonn Cregan’s men were four points to the good at the break but required four points from the dead ball from Hannon to overcome Davy Fitzgerald’s tenacious charges.

Limerick IT scorers: Diarmaid Byrnes 0-4 (0-2f, 0-1 ’65), Peter Duggan 0-2, Oisin O’Brien, Paul Killeen, Alan Dempsey 0-1 each.
