Anthony McCarthy has put the squad through 41 rigorous training sessions throughout the year, driving them to this All-Ireland final.
Limerick’s first ever Masters side face Armagh in the final of the Spirit Cup this Saturday in St Brigid’s, Roscommon at 2pm.
It is a maiden final for the county in their first year in the competition where they are managed by Anthony McCarthy, who has Maurice O’Connor as captain.
Both Limerick and Armagh won two of their six group games, losing the other four, with the Shannonsiders overcoming Kildare in the semi-final to reach Saturday’s final.
Armagh needed a last gasp goal to get over the line in their semi-final clash with Westmeath, who Limerick comfortably defeated in round four.
Westmeath represent the only side that both Limerick and Armagh have both faced, both coming through the Leinster outfit en route to Saturday’s decider.
Speaking on this week’s episode of Treaty Talk, Matt O’Callaghan says he is confident in the sides chances this Saturday.
“I’m very hopeful. I was talking to Anthony McCarthy, the manager in recent weeks and he is so positive about the whole thing. To put into context these are two teams that weren’t in existence last year. So to get to the Spirit Cup final is a huge achievement.
“Full credit to those who formed the Limerick Masters, I’d say in their wildest dreams when they started that they wouldn’t anticipate that it was going to end in an All-Ireland final.
“I think Limerick have a real real chance here.”Matt O’Callaghan
It is an impressive achievement for the Limerick Masters side to reach this final, given the team was not in existence a year ago, and the side will now be hungry for some silverware.
Anthony McCarthy has put the squad through 41 training sessions to get to this stage and with All-Ireland honours on the line, it would be a fitting end to a fantastic maiden season.
