Limerick hurling captain Declan Hannon says the competition within the squad at the moment is getting fiercer with each passing week.

The Treaty men added a Division 1 title to their recent collection of national silverware last month and Hannon says manager John Kiely has plenty of options available heading into this summer’s championship and Liam MacCarthy Cup defence.

"There's massive competition for places all over the field," Hannon is quoted saying by Sky Sports.

"Anyone who's sitting on the side-line looking in is thinking 'how am I gonna get my position back in this team?' and that goes for everybody, it doesn't matter how long you've been there or how many games you've played.

"That's the way you want it - the likes of Shane (Dowling) and Seamus Flanagan coming on (as substitutes) the last day as well. It's the impact they have when they come onto the field, it gives everyone a big boost."
