Hurling League Final.

A Limerick junior hurling goalkeeper has been getting all the plaudits after producing a heroic save to help his club claim silverware last night.

Patrickswell's Garry Murphy pulled off a stunning stop to deny parish rivals Ballybrown a certain goal on the stroke of half-time in the City Junior A Hurling League Final at Claughan.

Ballybrown midfielder Emmett Hannon burst through the Patrickswell rearguard and unleashed a bullet shot towards Murphy's top left corner but the 'Well netminder showed superb reactions.

It was such a crucial moment in the game as a goal would have pushed Ballybrown into a two-point lead going into the break while Murphy kept a clean sheet with his side running out 1-10 to 0-10 winners.
