Limerick manager John Kiely expressed his delight after yesterday’s Munster senior hurling championship final victory against Waterford.

The Treaty men retained their provincial crown with a 0-25 to 0-21 win at Semple Stadium, where they outscored their opponents by 0-7 to 0-3 in the closing quarter.

Speaking to RTE Sport afterwards, a delighted Kiely says the group are now looking towards an improved performance in the All-Ireland semi-finals from the one which saw them exit at the same stage last year against Kilkenny.

"We’re delighted. The Munster championship is a really special competition and really special occasion normally as well,” he stated.  

"Unfortunately, it can’t be that occasion that it normally is today but for us it’s a fantastic achievement to have won two Munster championships now.

"We won it the hard way, three matches, so all credit to the boys, they have worked extremely hard.

"We’re in a semi-final and we want to go one step further than last year at least.

"We were really disappointed and hurt after last year’s semi-final defeat. We’ve worked really hard to get to where we are right now. Hopefully we can push on and put in a better performance this time around."
