Limerick Hurling Team of the Decade: Right Corner Back

The decade that was 2010-2019 is fast coming to an end.

For the Limerick hurlers, it was a mixed decade that started with a protest but would ultimately deliver a first All-Ireland title in 45 years.

Overall, Limerick won one All-Ireland title, Two Munster Championships, a Division 1 League Title and A Division 2 League title.

Over the next fifteen days in the lead up to Christmas, I will select my team of the decade that saw Limerick play 40 championship games and 68 League games.

Yesterday we had the No. 1 spot.

Today we focus on Right-Corner Back.


Right-Corner Back

Sean Finn

Bruff

2017-Present

Honours: All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, Munster Senior Hurling Championship, Division 1 League Title, 2x U21 All Ireland Hurling Championship, 2x Munster U21 Hurling Championship, 2x Munster Minor Hurling Championship, 2x Senior All-Star, U21 All-Star

In his three seasons to date Sean Finn has achieved a fair amount and is certainty for the No. 2 jersey, despite his limited time on the panel.

This year, Finn became the only Limerick player to win a brace of All-Stars this decade as he collected his second consecutive award in October after another stellar season.

Finn is widely praised as the best corner-back in the country and is a nightmare match up for forwards.

The Bruff defender is blessed with speed, strength and is also well able to hurl also.

A complete defender.


Honourable Mention: Tom Condon.

A staple of the team for majority of the decade. Despite losing his starting berth in recent years, Condon has proved his worth whenever called upon with his last second catch in the All-Ireland final to never be forgotten.
