Liam Sheedy was quick to acknowledge the vital role played by sports psychologist Caroline Currid after Limerick ended their All-Ireland famine. 

The Sligo woman was part of Sheedy's backroom team when he guided Tipperary to Liam MacCarthy Cup glory in 2010 - stopping Kilkenny's drive-for-five in the process - and was also involved with the Tyrone and Dublin footballers when they won All-Ireland football titles in 2008 and 2011 respectively.

"She deserves massive credit, that's four times now! Tyrone, Dublin, ourselves and Limerick. I do think the Limerick teams over the years didn't have the inner belief but they did when they went behind to Kilkenny, went behind to Cork," Sheedy said on RTE.

"There is no doubt about it, she has worked on their inner strengths. Their mindset today was 'we are coming up here to play!'

Limerick captain Declan Hannon also singled Currid out for praise in his victory speech.

"She has just been phenomenal with us for the last two years. She has always been there for us, always there to keep us up and pick us up when we are down. She's after inheriting 36 new babies!" he said.
