Cork 2-19 

Limerick 0-7 

A superb team display saw Cork crowned Munster minor camogie champions as they over powered Limerick in Castle Road recently.

Cork played with huge confidence and were sharper in all sector and they were full value for their eighteen point victory. 

Limerick opened the scoring with an Amy Burke point.

Cork replied with Aimee Morgan and Eimear O’Brien edging them in front before a Ciara Golden goal set the foundations for what was to come over the hour. 

Lizann Boylan had a point back for the visitor but with Meadhbh Ring, Olivia McAllen, Ciara Golden, Orlaith Cahalane, Rose Murphy and Aimee Morgan pointing, Cork took control of the game.

Limerick finished the half strong with three point without reply, Ellie Hession and Laura Frawley on target as Cork led 1-9 to 0-5 at the break.

The second half belonged to Cork as they took control stretching their lead with three quick points from Aimee Morgan, Eimear O’Brien and Rose Murphy before Lizann Boylan converted a Limerick free.
