Playing career[edit]


Tobin first played for Limerick as a member of the minor team on 24 June 2007. He was held scoreless in a 0-12 to 3-21 Munster semi-final defeat by Tipperary.[1]

Over the next three years Tobin was a regular with the Limerick under-21 team, however, his side enjoyed little success during that period.

Tobin made his senior debut for Limerick in a 2-9 to 0-6 league defeat of Clare on 13 February 2011.[2] He became a regular throughout the group stage games and ended the campaign with a Division 2 medal following a 4-12 to 2-13 defeat of Clare in the decider.[3] Tobin contributed 1-1 during that game.

On 12 June 2011 Tobin made his senior championship debut in a 3-15 to 3-14 Munster semi-final defeat by Waterford.[4]

In 2013 Tobin won a Munster medal following a 0-24 to 0-15 victory over Cork.[5]
