His goal came thirteen minutes from the end of a Munster derby that provided plenty of goal chances, but both goalkeepers brought off splendid saves.
Mark McNulty got down to prevent Rory Gaffney putting Limerick in front after 32 minutes but the half ended without a goal.
Dennehy should have scored after 53 minutes when he was alone with alone Ryan to beat but he shot straight at the keeper.
Substitute Darragh Rainsford almost salvaged something for Limerick after 86 minutes after good build-up by Stephen Folan and Gaffney, but McNulty made a brilliant save to allow Cork keep the pressure on Dundalk.
