In 2007 Limerick beat Tipperary in a thrilling Munster Senior Hurling Championship Semi-Final which is now known as the Trilogy, as it took 3 games to separate these close rivals. The final score line of the 2nd replay was 0.22 to 2.13 aet. 30,608 fans witnessed this now historic occasion as Limerick had not beaten Tipperary since 1996 or indeed won a match in the Munster Championship since their comeback against Waterford in 2001 which to a Munster Final they subsequently lost to their 'monkey on their back' or as Seamus Hickey referred to them as 'gorilla', Tipperary. However, Limerick subsequently lost the Munster Final to Waterford on the 8th July in Thurles. They regrouped and beat Clare (1:23 - 1:16) in the All-Ireland Quarter-Final on 29th July. Andrew O'Shaughnessy (Shaughs/Shocks) picked up the Man of the Match (MotM) award in this match. On the 12th August, they played Waterford in the Semi-Final. A rematch of the Munster Final a month previously. Fortunately for Limerick though, the result was not to be the same. A scoreline of 5:11 - 2:15 was enough to defeat the Deise Men. The goals came from Donie Ryan (2), Andrew O'Shaughnessy (2 - from play & a penalty) and Brian Begley (1). O' Shaughnessy once again picked up the MotM award for his fine display. On the 2 Sep 2007 in Croke Park, Limerick played in the All-Ireland Hurling Final. Lady Luck did not strike twice however and it was to be Kilkenny's day. Final score; Kilkenny 2-19 - 1-15 Limerick.
