Well done Limerick, doubly impressive given how good Cork looked down in Tralee 2 weeks ago.

Well done Limerick, watching the Cork and Kerry game, Cork looked well down the road progression and fitness wise, you could see the thumb print of Cian O'Neill on the team and set plays. admittedly Kerry were a third string at best but sill Cork ripped us apart so for Limerick to top that last night the must be doing something right and going in the right direction.

On the second game, wow that some scoring by both sides - some combined total for second week in January. Fitness level is mad, I'm thinking back to when league games started in October and again in March the fitness levels were zero, some change now. But back to Limerick footballers, I know they are the poor relation in the county at a lot of levels and I have heard small ball board members say that the O'Neills ball is just for bursting so against all the odds well done.

I think if our fairly good team of the oughties had played the fast open style of football these boys played last night we would have got over the line in at least one Munster Final in that period. I do not think I have ever seen a LK football team score twenty points in a game and certainly not again a strong county like Cork. Congratulations lads on a fine win.
