The third edition of the Fenway Hurling Classic ‘Super 11’s’ took place in Bostons Fenway Park Stadium on Sunday. Cork, Clare, Wexford, and All-Ireland hurling champions Limerick faced off in a modified rules, 11-a-side hurling tournament where only goals counted.

ALL-IRELAND hurling champions Limerick ran out deserving winners of the Aer Lingus Fenway Hurling Classic at a cold Fenway Park in Boston yesterday, beating Cork by eight points.
Just as they finished their semi-final win over Wexford, Limerick started the final in dominant fashion, an opening eight-minute deluge seeing them notch up a 21-0 lead over the Rebels.
A last minute penalty goal against Clare from All-Star forward Patrick Horgan had sealed Cork’s place in the ‘Super 11’s’ final and perhaps the long wait around was to blame for the lacklustre start by John Meyler’s men in this modified rules match, where only goals counted.
CORK: A Nash; S O’Donoghue, D Cahalane, C Spillane, C Joyce, E Cadogan, M Coleman, B Cooper, D Fitzgibbon, D Kearney, C Lehane, S Kingston, L Meade, T O’ Mahony, P Horgan, J O’Connor, E Murphy, R O’Flynn, W Kearney, D Brosnan, D Griffin, D Browne, J Coughlan, M Collins, C Twomey, S Murphy.
