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.

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' Shuaghnessy 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.
