Watch: Cracking Conor Boylan Goal Helps Limerick See Off Laois

A goal apiece from Seamus Flanagan and Conor Boylan helped Limerick see off Laois in the first Allianz Hurling quarter-final in Portlaoise this evening.

Limerick were never really in danger as they stormed into a commanding lead from the outset, with Flanagan rattling the back of the Laois net after only four minutes.

From there, Limerick hit their groove and kept Laois at arm's length throughout the first half. John Kiely's side then killed the game as contest ten minutes before half-time, with Conor Boylan finishing off a nice piece of Limerick play with a perfectly placed strike into the corner.

With his side trailing 2-11 to 0-06 at half -time, Eddie Brennan would have been hoping for an improved performance from his charges in the second half. However, it never came and Laois bow out of the league and can now look forward to a clash against Offaly in the first round of the Joe McDonagh Cup on May 11th.

Limerick coasted through the second half, with this sideline cut from Darragh O'Donovan the pick of the bunch, as they ran out easy winners 2-22 to 0-11.

For reigning All-Ireland champions Limerick, they make their way to the Allianz Hurling League semi-finals where they will be hoping to continue their impressive division 1A form and make it back to their first league final since 2006 and win their first league title in 22 years.
