Limerick 1-20, Tipperary 2-14 (after extra-time)

Limerick are U21 Munster hurling champions for an unprecedented third consecutive time after an epic win over Tipperary in the Munster hurling final replay that went to extra-time at Thurles.

The sides were level at the break after Eoin Kelly put over a point to tie the teams at 0-07 apiece.

However, second-half goals from MacDara Butler and John O'Brien gave Tipp the advantage as the clock wound down and Limerick trailed 0-13 to 2-11.

However - as they did a fortnight ago - Limerick again pulled a last-gasp goal out of the hat as Andrew O'Shaughnessy kicked to the net in the dying seconds and Kevin Tobin converted a point to bring the sides to extra-time.

Limerick led at the switch of sides after points from Eoin Foley, Kevin Tobin and Conor Fitzgerald and they extended their lead in the second-half to seal their narrowest championship win to date.
