There was some late drama in the Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-final between Limerick IT and NUIG on Thursday.

HE GAA videographer Jerome Quinn was there to capture the skill, passion and commitment in Moylish.

He said: "The players running through the crowd to get onto the pitch for the start of the game is classic Fitzgibbon.

"This is the great game of hurling at its purest, on a Thursday afternoon on a college pitch, with amazing scores, high catches and serious drama right at the end."
