The Saffrons managed to stay in touch in the first half, as Limerick made the most of the wind advantage to lead by 0-11 to 0-6 at the break.

However the second half was all about the Shannonsiders, with Conor Allis top-scoring with 11 points and goals from David Reidy, Sean Tobin and William Hickey sealing a comfortable victory.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Derry bounced back from their opening defeat to Kerry with a convincing 3-11 to 0-8 win over Westmeath - a result that moves the Oak Leaf county to third in the table.

In Division 2B Down saw off Wicklow while Armagh lost to Fingal.

The Ardsmen maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign with a 1-15 to 0-10 win over the Garden County to move to the top of the table, while Armagh couldn't find a way past the Dublin side, going down by 2-19 to 2-13.

In Division 3A there were wins for Monaghan and Donegal while Fermanagh's game against Louth was postponed.
