LIAM Sheedy’s Munster eased into the M. Donnelly GAA Hurling Interprovincial Championship final after a comfortable 12 point victory over Ulster at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh.

Munster did the damage in the opening period when playing with a strong wind but were outscored by 0-10 to 0-8 in the second half as Ulster restored some pride in a 3-20 to 1-14 defeat.

 

Playing with the aid of a strong breeze Munster made a slow start and two Neil McManus frees for the northerners kept the scoreline to 0-4 to 0-3 in favour Munster early on.

 

Limerick’s Graeme Mulcahy then took control with goals either side of Paudie O’Sullivan three-pointer to put Liam Sheedy’s men in complete command.

 

Neil McManus did score a goal in response for Ulster who were already playing for damage limitation.

 

They led 3-12 to 1-4 at the break largely thanks to Mulcahy’s 2-2 from play and the free-taking exploits of Pat Cronin.

 

The beginning of the second half was much more even with Ulster now playing with the breeze at their backs.

 

McManus and Shane Dowling of Limerick were treating the crowd at the Athletic Grounds to some fine scores and after 50 minutes Munster led by 3-19 to 1-9 after 60 minutes.

 

McManus, McCarry and Shiels hit three points in a row for Ulster as they looked to finish with a flourish and McManus added another to bring his personal tally to 1-7 to make it 3-19 to 1-13.

 

Shane Dowling and Alan Grant swapped points late on as Munster ran out 3-20 to 1-14 winners but manager Sheehy will be a little concerned after only managing two points from play in the second half.
