Muskerry won the Fred Daly Trophy Munster Final in Clonmel today, beating Limerick after a great display of golf.  Playing in their third final in three years, the Cork side put the disappointment of last year behind them with a great win in Clonmel.  The Cork side took an early lead in the match, and Eoghan O’Shaughnessy & Stephen Riordan playing fifth and fourth respectively, put points on the board early for Muskerry.  Muskerry had the upper hand, Fionn Hickey and Jack Egan were leading and Zak Collins was all square as the matches moved through the back nine.  In the end it was Jack Egan who secured the winning point, giving Muskerry their second Munster pennant in three years. 

Earlier in the day Muskerry beat Dungarvan and Limerick beat Killarney in the semi-finals.  Muskerry now go on to the national finals in Castle Dargan in September.
