An early goal from Kilkenny’s Eoin Cody just 10 minutes into the first half saw Kilkenny take the lead with 1-02 to 0-02, despite the scare, Limerick kept their nerve going toe-to-toe with the 36-time champions with scores from Aaron Gillane, Diarmaid Byrnes, Cian Lynch, and a late score from Tom Morrisey bringing the first half to a close with Kilkenny leading 1-09 to 0-9.

At halftime, Limerick regrouped and emerged with renewed determination despite another early Kilkenny goal coming just minutes after throw in, the defending champions unleashed a dominant display of power and precision.

Players like Gearóid Hegarty and Cathal O’Neill contributed significantly to Limerick’s extraordinary comeback, combining for multiple scores, including an incredible Cian Lynch performance which saw the Patrickswell man lift the Liam MacCarthy cup alongside the injured team captain, Adare’s Declan Hannon, after the 70 minutes of amazing hurling.
