The 2018 All-Ireland champions claimed all two points following their assignment in Nowlan Park on Sunday.

The teams headed to the dressing room at half-time with the score standing at 2-10 to 0-7 in Limericks favour. The second half proved to be tough test for the home side with the visitors failing to give much away. Both teams recorded eight points in the second half, the game ended on a scoreline of 2-18 to 0-15.
