Limerick’s impressive second-half showing against Cork in last night’s Munster SHL final pleased manager John Kiely.

The Treaty County ran out 1-32 to 0-20 winners after outscoring the Rebel County by 18 points to six after the break in the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

“We weren’t all together satisfied with the first-half performance,” the victorious manager said afterwards to Sporting Limerick.

“The energy levels weren’t where we wanted them to be and the execution of what we were trying to do wasn’t there either. We struggled to get the quality ball that we wanted to into the inside forward line.

“We addressed a few issues at half-time, we just asked the players for more energy in the second-half and they gave it. You could see that from the get-go in the second-half, there was a lot more energy about them and a lot more urgency in our play and we just executed what we were trying to do much better.”
