A round-up of Sunday’s National Hurling League action, as Clare and Limerick picked up wins.

Division 1

Group A

Limerick continued their perfect start to 2020, after a deserved eight-point win over Galway in the LIT Gaelic Grounds. The reigning league champions pulled clear after the break thanks to a David Dempsey goal, as they ran out 1-19 to 0-15 victors.

Shane O’Neill opted for inexperience in much of his team selection, as the Tribesmen failed to stick with the Treaty in the second half. There was also cause for concern, as Joe Canning was forced off due to injury.

Three first-half goals from Waterford proved the difference as Liam Cahill’s men made it two wins from two in Division 1, Group A. The Déise dug deep for a 3-18 to 1-15 victory over Shane O’Brien’s charges to move to the top of the table.
