LISTEN: Ciarán Carey talks Limerick’s loss to Cork and all the other hurling action

By Ciarán Carey / May 23, 2019 / 0 Comments

Cork were always going to be gunning for this game given the recent history between the teams. I’m not going to kick Limerick when they are down. The touch looked a bit off and the passes that usually are bread and butter were off as well. Limerick looked a bit leggy and a bit tired.…

LISTEN: Kiely’s men to begin with win over Rebels

Limerick are All-Ireland champions. That’s absolutely beautiful to say and it’s fantastic. It’s a different animal trying to defend that. It all starts again this Sunday. Limerick will be looking at Cork’s performance last week and will be expecting a kick back from that. The thing that will stand to Limerick hugely is, number one;…

LISTEN: Limerick deserve the league and they won it in style

By Ciarán Carey / April 2, 2019 / 0 Comments

Looking at Limerick’s victorious league campaign all through the year and at last Sunday, they did it in style. Waterford played their part in it with the way they set up tactically. They weren’t set up correctly and allowed Nickie Quaid puck outs to go short for the whole of the game. If Waterford were…

LISTEN: Ciarán Carey “Limerick need to bring everything against Waterford”

By Ciarán Carey / March 28, 2019 / 0 Comments

Limerick aren’t going to have their way every time they go out onto the field whether that’s in league or in championship. They ground it out and got a result. I was very impressed with Dublin and they are one of the best teams that Limerick have met in the league so far. Both teams…

Ciaran Carey: “I’d fancy Limerick to be that bit strong for Dublin”

By Ciarán Carey / March 20, 2019 / 0 Comments

There has been a lot of inconsistencies in the League thus far. You had Cork beating a Limerick team who had three wins from three. Cork would fall to Tipperary the following week before, low and behold, Dublin would overcome the Premier County in the quarter-finals of the League, something I genuinely didn’t see happening.…

LISTEN: Professional Limerick deserve huge credit after Laois performance

By Ciarán Carey / March 14, 2019 / 0 Comments

Limerick would have been expected to come away with a result going up to Portlaoise and that’s what they did. They got the result in a very professional manner. After the first goal, I said to my nephew ‘what’s gone?’ He said five minutes and I said game over. You could sense the pattern of…

Ciaran Carey: “If I got a tip, you can be sure it went back with about 70% VAT”

By Ciarán Carey / March 7, 2019 / 0 Comments

You could ask for no more as a Limerick fan coming out of Ennis. All the pressure was really on Clare. On days like last Sunday, when the weather is terrible and it’s not only raining, but snowing as well, what you really want is real men to stand up, show their real personality and…

LISTEN: Carey “Emotions need to be balanced for Limerick’s return to Ennis”

By Ciarán Carey / February 28, 2019 / 0 Comments

There was a great atmosphere in the Gaelic Grounds on Sunday and I think a small bit of recognition must go to our supporters. It’s the first time I’ve seen that amount of travelling support in the league and obviously, that is because of the highs that Limerick reached last year. It was a match…

LISTEN: Limerick are in a place where they are shaping the game of hurling

By Ciarán Carey / February 21, 2019 / 0 Comments

Three games played and three games won. The first game against Wexford they got rid of the cobwebs. But watching spells in the second half against Tipperary and down in Nowlan Park against Kilkenny, serious credit has to go to Joe O’Connor and Paul Kinnerk. Kinnerk is in a different sphere in and around his…

LISTEN: Ciarán Carey “If Kilkenny crack the code they could derail Limerick”

By Ciarán Carey / February 14, 2019 / 0 Comments

In the past, Limerick teams would have always loved to have a crack off Kilkenny just to see where they were at physically and technically. I’d imagine most teams out there now are looking at the performance of Limerick at this early stage and using that as a barometer for themselves. That’s new and unique…
