Ardscoil easily shrugged aside the challenge of the Cork lads with some tremendous points and a wonderful first-half goal from corner-forward Lucas O'Brien. The speedy winger cut through the Chriost Ri defence and smashed the ball past 'keeper Barry O'Neill.

Trailing by 1-7 to 0-5 at the break Chriost Ri needed a quick start after the break, but it was the Limerick team who again took the initiative and pulled away.
