Cian Sheehan says there’s “no huge pressure” on Newcastle West heading into this weekend’s Munster club senior football championship final against Kerins O’Rahillys.

The Limerick champions are preparing for their first senior provincial decider since 1987 and are 9/4 outsiders against their Kerry counterparts on Saturday evening at Pairc Ui Rinn (7.30pm).

Speaking to GAA.ie, Sheehan says he and his Newcastle West team mates will be heading into the decider with the shackles off.

“We're not here to make up the numbers on Saturday. The (Clonmel) Commercials game was a relief more than anything," said the Limerick star.

“We felt we'd be knocking on the door and it was great to just get over that line. That would give us a lot of confidence.

“The shackles are off now going into the Muster final. There's no huge pressure on us. We can just go out and enjoy the game and do the best we can.”
