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…

Ciaran Carey: “Focused Limerick are very hard to counteract”

By Ciarán Carey / February 6, 2019 / 0 Comments

In the first game against Wexford, Limerick were slightly sluggish and dusted off the cobwebs. We saw there in the second half the way Limerick can hurl. That is the Limerick that we are accustomed to seeing. It was great to put in that type of performance, especially when Tipperary come to town. I just…

Ciarán Carey: “Good Start but Tipp will be Gunning for Limerick”

By Ciarán Carey / January 31, 2019 / 0 Comments

LIMERICK are after shedding off a few cobwebs with the Wexford game. In the first 12 or 13 minutes it had the making of a good game, but after that it appeared to be that the teams were back after a holiday camp. They were very leggy. I’d put that down to all the teams…

LISTEN: Ciarán Carey: “The Journey Begins Again for Limerick Hurlers”

By Ciarán Carey / January 24, 2019 / 0 Comments

THE JOURNEY begins again for Limerick’s hurlers. In fairness, they had the holidays and all enjoyed themselves. Now will be the big test. When you are All-Ireland champions, every team that you face they will be gunning for you. The interesting one for me on Sunday is that Davy Fitzgerald would be renowned for giving…
