Overturning that half time deficit to a winning margin of nine, Nash wasn’t all that surprised with what his team produced.
Barry Nash’s assessment of the 2023 All-Ireland final was as simple as it was brilliant with the All-Star defender soaking in the latest accolade bestowed on the team.
With their title on the line, Limerick took their time getting to the pitch of the game and trailed by three points at the interval.
What followed was a second half display that echoed that of the 2021 Munster Final and the first half of the All-Ireland that same year as the Shannonsiders pulverised the opposition.
Overturning that deficit to a winning margin of nine, Nash wasn’t all that surprised with what his team produced.
“I know what we can do and we saw it in the second half, there was scores going over from everywhere. Once we get into that flow, that rhythm, it will take some team to stop us.”
The South Liberties man gave arguably his best performance of the year in the final, winning a fourth successive All-Ireland title at corner back, as he praised the man that first put him into that position, John Kiely.
“He’s a phenomenal man, I don’t think I can put it into words the man he is, he’s incredible. I don’t know how to describe him, he is just a great man and a phenomenal leader.”
For Nash and co, they can rest safe in the knowledge that more history has been achieved as the attention will no doubt drift from four in a tow to a chance at a first ever five in a row in the history of hurling.
But for now, it’s a well earned celebration for this extraordinary group.
