Man of the match

Gary Brennan (Clare)

Made 27 plays overall. Was quiet after the break but was carrying a hamstring strain and his first-half contribution was ultimately decisive.

Talking point

The number of All-Ireland senior hurling medallists Clare had on the pitch. Seán and Podge Collins, Cathal McInerney and Davy O'Halloran featured while Alan O'Neill was on the bench.

Magic moment

Cathal McInerney's insurance score. Clare were just hanging on when they kept their heads and cleverly engineered the chance for McInerney, who clinically took it.

Ref watch

Derek O'Mahoney had a consistent game overall, even though Clare had some gripes with the free count, and some of the frees that were awarded to Limerick.
