Limerick 0-30 Waterford 2-21

Limerick 3-21 Tipperary 0-23

Clare 0-24 Limerick 1-21

Munster final

Clare 0-29 Limerick 1-29 (a.e.t.)

All-Ireland semi-final

Limerick 0-27 Galway 1-24

Wins over Cork, Waterford and Tipperary plus a draw with Clare in Ennis saw the reigning All-Ireland champions into the Munster final against the only side they didn’t beat in the round-robin. Gearóid Hegarty’s goal proved to be the difference in the final against Clare as Limerick progressed thanks to a 1-29 0-29 win after extra-time.

In the semi-final, Henry Shefflin’s Galway were put away by three points, Aaron Gillane top scoring with 0-8.

Kilkenny

Leinster round robin

Westmeath 1-19 Kilkenny 5-23

Kilkenny 2-34 Laois 1-14

Galway 1-24 Kilkenny 3-17

Dublin 0-17 Kilkenny 3-25

Kilkenny 1-18 Wexford 1-22

Leinster final

Galway 0-17 Kilkenny 0-22

All-Ireland semi-final

Kilkenny 2-26 Clare 0-20

The Cats had more of an up-and-down run to the final, losing twice in the Leinster round-robin to Galway and Wexford but thumping wins over Dublin, Laois and Westmeath were enough to put them in the final. That’s where they met Galway again, avenging their earlier defeat with a five-point win at Croke Park.

Their All-Ireland semi-final was a straightforward affair, as goals from Cian Kenny and Martin Keoghan plus 0-10 from TJ Reid propelled them to a 12-point win over Clare.

What are the bookies saying?

Limerick are the clear favourites at 4/9. Kilkenny are at 9/4.
