Young Munster seeking Charity Cup ‘3 in a row’

November 7, 2018

The Limerick Charity Cup Final takes place this Friday December 16th in Dooradoyle. Ulster Bank League table-toppers Young Munster will play seventh place Shannon in what is bound to be an exciting, hard-fought local derby.

Young Munster have won the Charity Cup final for the last two years. The ‘black and amber’ beat UL Bohemians in 2009 with an Alan Kingsley penalty in the dying minutes to win 11-10; and in 2010 it was an injury time penalty from the boot of Willie Staunton that sealed Shannon’s fate as they lost 12-9. This year’s final is a replay of last year and no doubt Shannon will be keen to turn the tables on last year’s result. Young Munster are aiming for three titles in a row and are the form side in the league but in a local cup match, anything can happen. A tight match awaits spectators no doubt. Kick-off time is 7.15pm.

Following the match, the Young Munster Christmas Party will take place in the Clubhouse at Tom Clifford Park with live music, raffle and more. Open invitation to players, friends and supporters. No cover charge. All are invited.

A limited shuttle bus will be in operation from Dooradoyle to Tom Clifford Park after the game for those who wish to leave the car at home and join us in a festive night to toast the club’s success in 2011.
