“Kilkenny are a far stronger side than last year” – Ciarán Carey

By Ciarán Carey / July 16, 2019 / 0 Comments

Cork have a lot of nice hurlers, but they fail at the art of defending and it cost them again on Sunday. Ultimately, they were weak in defence and not enough of their big guns showed up on the day. The problems of last year too came up again, their bench. You can’t depend on…

This was the best that I have seen from this team

By Ciarán Carey / July 4, 2019 / 0 Comments

Anybody that was in the LIT Gaelic Grounds on Sunday saw history being made again. This crop of players started their history last year and I have a funny feeling that they are going to continue to make history. The display that I saw on Sunday has to go down as the best that I…

Lack of consistency cost us against Tipperary

By Ciarán Carey / June 20, 2019 / 0 Comments

Tactically, Tipperary nailed us. I also think that a four point loss was flattering to Limerick. Within the first 10 minutes, Tipp had an opportunity of scoring 2-3 and they didn’t take it. They went fairly direct and their goalkeeper was outstanding with his puckouts. Most of them were route one and were clearing the…

LISTEN: Confident Limerick head to Thurles after demolishing Clare

By Ciarán Carey / June 13, 2019 / 0 Comments

Limerick’s attitude when they hit the field against Clare was where you would have expected it to be. They gave an exhibition, as a team, and as a squad. The most pleasing aspect for me was that it was the nearest team to an actual team performance that you will get. Every line acquitted themselves…

LISTEN: Ciaran Carey -“Limerick Need To Take The Jersey Out Of Clare Battle”

By Ciarán Carey / June 6, 2019 / 0 Comments

You will see now this week, Newspapers will be bumping it up, Social Media will be bumping it up and everyone else that knows anything about Hurling in Clare or Limerick will all bump it up. They’ll all be talking about the match-ups like Conlon and Casey last year, they’ll be talking about the middle…

Ciaran Carey “Limerick’s Performance Just What The Doctor Ordered”

By Ciarán Carey / June 4, 2019 / 0 Comments

There’s a cliche out there: “Just what the doctor ordered” and that was it Sunday. What a performance and what a way to bounce back from the first defeat and to be fair to the players, every player knows individually whether they are club or county when they have underperformed. I know that team would…

LISTEN: Limerick need pride in their performance against Deise

By Ciarán Carey / May 29, 2019 / 0 Comments

I think we will see a response from Limerick and I think it’s tailor made for the opposition we are facing as well. They are not going great themselves so we are meeting Waterford at the right time. This time last year there were lots of challenges put in front of Limerick and they answered…

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

By Ciarán Carey / May 16, 2019 / 0 Comments

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 / 1 Comment

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…
