Limerick chairman John Cregan has called for collective responsibility as the county’s hurlers prepare to face Waterford in next Sunday week’s All-Ireland SHC final.

The Shannonsiders are bidding for their second Liam MacCarthy Cup in three years and Cregan wants supporters to enjoy next weekend’s final “in a responsible manner". 

"We are asking our supporters to give their support by way of adhering to public health guidelines," RTÉ's Morning Ireland. 

"We have a hugely enthusiastic supporter base that we are very proud and very appreciative of.

"On this occasion, we are very conscious of the circumstances we find ourselves in. If we cast our minds back to earlier on in the year it looked very likely we wouldn’t have an All-Ireland championship.

"Thankfully we got that, and we got it on the basis of being able to play our games safely. The protocols that have been put in place to date have allowed for that to happen, but when we get to an All-Ireland final stage, there is huge potential for many of us to drop our guard.

"That would increase the risk of the spread of the virus, so we are really appealing to our supporters that the best way to support us on this occasion is by enjoying the special occasion in a responsible manner."
