Limerick did the double in Tramore today as they added the AIG Senior Cup title to the AIG Barton Shield win they had yesterday.  Solid play again proved to be the winning formula with all five of the players winning in either the semi-final or final.  This afternoon it was they anchorman Justin Kehoe who set the pace, bringing in the first point on the 12th green.  The four remaining matches were a lot closer though,  Limerick brought in a second point when Owen O’Brien won on the 19th, and soon after Ciaran Vaughan holed out a six footer on the 18th to win his match and give Limerick their second Munster Pennant in two days.

In the morning semi-finals Limerick beat Thurles while Bandon came through a bruising battle with Tralee, winning on the 20th.  Limerick now send two teams to Wesport for the AIG Cups & Shields national finals in September.  Tramore (AIG Junior Cup), Nenagh (AIG Jimmy Bruen Shield) and Charleville (AIG Pierce Purcell Shield) are the other clubs going forward as Munster Champions.
