“Fantastic young group who will go on to represent Limerick again” – Kevin O’Hagan reflects on semi-final loss

The reigning munster minor champions Limerick have fallen short of a final spot after a 1-14 to 1-24 loss to Cork in the Munster Championship semi-final.

Disappointment for the Limerick minor hurlers, as they suffer a 10 point semi-final loss to Cork in Semple Stadium yesterday.

Despite the irksome gap in the final scoreline, Limerick’s minor hurling manager Kevin O’Hagan had nothing but positive things to say about his squad.

“I can’t fault any of them… very very proud is probably my real emotion. These are really good fellas, they have this kind of honesty”

O’Hagan told Sporting Limerick

O’Hagan once again displayed some good sportsmanship by praising the opposition for what they did well. Despite the significant momentum created by Limerick at certain points in the game, Cork played like a well oiled machine, and were able to rely on their acute attack to get points on the board.

“They’re pace in the half forward line was exceptional, and they ran at you and made good decisions, which ultimately led to scores.”

Due to Covid-19 restrictions the 2020/21 season has been anything but normal, and like many other coaches and players alike, O’Hagan couldn’t help but ponder about how different this championship may have gone if he and his squad were given adequate time to prepare.

“If we had another couple of week, if we had another couple of group games more than anything else… Really it’s about those young people getting the opportunity to play games in an atmosphere like here in Thurles”
