“I want to win everything” | Tom Morrissey thrilled to play part in Munster final

Speaking after the victory over Cork, Morrissey touched on the improvements they have been making as a collective since the Banner loss.

Limerick half-forward Tom Morrissey is delighted to have a chance to play in Sunday’s Munster final, one he and his Limerick teammates thought was out of reach, following disappointing results.

The Shannonsiders will meet Clare in a repeat of last year’s Munster final, after John Kiely’s side overcame Cork and Tipperary slumped to defeat at home to Waterford in the final round of the provincial championship. Limerick have a chance to get revenge over Clare, following the loss in April, and also have an opportunity to win a fifth consecutive Munster Championship for the first time in their history.

Morrissey has been a fantastic scoring presence for the Treaty this year, firing over twelve points across his four championship games, and the Ahane man doesn’t want to stop winning anytime soon.

“I want to win everything I can win, the group relish days like today, you don’t play to go the backdoor route, you play to play on big days, Munster final day, it’s been a fantastic championship so far, to be involved in the showpiece event of it that’s what you want, you don’t want it any other way at all.”

Limerick met Clare in the Gaelic Grounds in April of this year, and while Morrissey had a good game personally, the Shannonsiders saw their four year unbeaten record come to an end.

It was a second below par performance on the trot for Limerick who scraped past Waterford in the opening round of the championship. They were then held to a draw against Tipp before putting in their best display last time out to eliminate Cork and book their final berth.

Speaking after the victory over Cork, Morrissey touched on the improvements they have been making as a whole. Both players and management will be hoping for the improvement to continue this Sunday against a Clare side searching for a first provincial crown since 1998.

“We knew performances were improving, while results marginally might have went against us, we knew we were improving. We were just focused on improving like we always do.”

If Limerick are to repeat the trick of twelve months ago, Morrissey promises to be key in that five in a row bid.

Limerick face Clare on Sunday June 11 at 1:45pm in TUS Gaelic Grounds in the 2023 Munster Senior Hurling Championship Final.
