Clare’s third successive Munster SHC final loss to Limerick has prompted Ursula Jacob to ask: ‘have they gone back a little bit?’

Speaking on The Sunday Game, the Wexford camogie legend noted: "It's a huge psychological blow; it's a seventh Munster final loss since they won their last one in '98 and a third final defeat to Limerick. The big question now is: can Clare recover from this? Looking at today's performance, have they gone back a little bit?

"They couldn't handle the pressure, maybe today. There was more pressure on Clare and they struggled in the key moments today and they'll be very, very disappointed because Limerick by far were the better team overall and they fully deserved the win."

Brian Lohan’s men will have a chance to resurrect their season when they face either Wexford or Laois in the All-Ireland SHC quarter-final on June 22.
