Limerick topped the Allianz Football League Division 4 table despite scoring just 78 points during their 7 games (11 points per match). Only London (75 points) scored less. Limerick’s success was based on their stingy defending with a concession of 71 points. Tipperary were the top scorers in the division with 106 points on aggregate (15+ per game) but conceded 90 points. Waterford (For 90, Against 96) and Clare (For 96, Against 86) were the other Munster counties in Division 4.

Limerick’s Ian Ryan was the top scorer in the 2012 Munster Senior Football Championship with 1-17 (0-11 frees) in two matches. Colm Cooper (Kerry) with 0-9 (0-5 frees) and Colm O’Neill with 0-9 (0-3 frees) finished joint second.

There was an 18% decrease in the number of scores in the 2012 Munster Senior Football Championship as compared to 2011 (33 scores per game versus 27) but overall the trend is up over recent years - 2008 (21 scores per game), 2009 (24 scores per game), 2010 (28 scores per game), 2011 (33 scores per game), 2012 (27 scores per game).

Since 2000, Limerick have won as many matches in the Munster Senior Football Championship (10) than Tipperary (2), Clare (6) and Waterford (2) combined. Only 3 of those 10 Limerick victories have come at home, against Waterford in 2004 (1-18 to 0-7), versus Clare in 2006 (2-5 to 0-8) and against Waterford in 2012 (2-12 to 0-7). Limerick have a home tie with Cork in the 2013 first round on May 25th at the Gaelic Grounds Limerick.

Since 2000, Kerry have drawn as many matches in the Munster Senior Football Championship than they have lost, 5 draws (all v Cork) as compared to 5 defeats in 35 matches played. 

Tipperary have lost their first game in the Munster Senior Football Championship in the last 9 seasons. Tipperary’s last Munster SFC victory came in the first round in 2003 when helped by 11 points by Declan Browne, the Premier County defeated Waterford at Walsh Park by 0-18 to 1-12. Cork native Denis Walsh was the Waterford manager on the day.

Kerry had the worst scoring record in the Allianz Football League Division 1, racking up an aggregate of 72 points (average of just over 10 per game). This compares to an aggregate of 97 points for Cork and 129 points for Division 1 champions Dublin.

Waterford have won 2 matches in the Munster Senior Football Championship since 1988. Both victories have come at the expense of Clare in games played at Fraher Field Dungarvan – a 1-6 to 0-7 victory in 2007 and a 1-10 to 0-9 win in 2010.
