Limerick IT powered their way to a home quarter-final with a devastating victory over Trinity in Moylish.

Peter Duggan and Peter Casey starred for LIT in the comprehensive victory, with Duggan landing 1-8 and Casey 1-1.

Trinity had no answer to LIT's forward power as goals from Duggan, Casey and Oisin Kelly finished the game as a contest in the first half.

Kelly got the first goal on 12 minutes after taking a superb pass from Casey. The Limerick corner-forward then got in the act himself with a low finish past Eoin Skelly.

Duggan scrambled home LIT's third goal in the 26th minute and that helped them to a 3-10 to 0-4 lead at half-time.

LIT continued to dominate in the second half with Jason McCarthy and Rian Doody getting a couple of scores each in the 23-point victory.

Jordon Conway also came off the bench for LIT and sent over three points in an impressive cameo.
