Limerick qualified for the All-Ireland series of the championship after their win on Sunday.
It was hard fought but in the end, Limerick maintained their 100% championship record this year with a 3-21 to 0-23 defeat of Tipperary on Sunday afternoon.
Tipp led for over a half an hour prior to David Reidy’s effort on 65 minutes. But goals from Conor Boylan and Aaron Gillane down the stretch secured the seven point win.
Four Limerick players have been included in the GAA.ie Team of the Week after the win in the form of Nickie Quaid, Barry Nash, Tom Morrissey and Aaron Gillane.
It is a second successive selection for Gillane while it is first the other trio have been chosen since the championship’s kick off three weeks ago.
Nickie Quaid kept his first clean sheet of the season, making one crucial save late on whilst alos adapting to Tipp’s clever puckout strategy.
Current All-Star Barry Nash powered up the field for one of Limerick’s key scores down the home stretch and was solid in defensive.
Tom Morrissey looked back to his best with 0-4 from play, including three in the second half while Gillane was at his best with two well taken goals leaving his tally at 2-5 (4f)
A number of Kiely’s side will feel aggrieved to have been left out including Mike Casey, Sean Finn, Darragh O’Donovan and Gearoid Hegarty to name a few.
