Cork were dumped out of the u21 Munster Hurling Championship this evening in Páirc Uí Rinn, and despite a late rally, they were well beaten.
The last time the Rebels won an underage title was the Minor All-Ireland in 2001, and the hurling community on Lee-side is growing impatient, while some were optimistic after some promising spells during the match.
FT Limerick 3-19 Cork 2-15 , the wait goes on, some green shoots though !!!

Cork good or Limerick applying the brakes? An 11 point game became a 4 point game and finished at 7pts. Limerick win 3-19 to 2-15 #BGEU21

The Rebels do not have much time for a post mortem, as the seniors are out on Saturday evening in the same venue against Dublin.
After their heavy defeat to Tipperary in the first round of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship, Kieran Kingston’s charges must regroup as Ger Cunningham and Co. come to town.
