LISTEN: Ciarán Carey talks Limerick’s loss to Cork and all the other hurling action

Cork were always going to be gunning for this game given the recent history between the teams. I’m not going to kick Limerick when they are down.

The touch looked a bit off and the passes that usually are bread and butter were off as well. Limerick looked a bit leggy and a bit tired. Cork looked hungrier and every one of the Cork forwards were absolutely buzzing.

Daniel Kearney, Seamus Harnedy, Luke Meade, Cadogan, Patrick Horgan, Aidan Walsh. When you have six forwards buzzing, they are going to take a bit of stopping.

Unless you are in the full of your health, you won’t have a chance and Limerick just weren’t at it.

Cork were ahead in a lot of positions but it’s only the first game. You don’t become All-Ireland champions overnight. The backbone in this squad is solid and we will see how solid that is against Waterford.

The big advantage really when you win your first game is that your destiny is still in your own hands. The mantra this time last year was how big it was to play in your own back yard.

I believe that no matter where the game is on that the best team is going to win out anyway. Last year there was a false belief that home advantage was huge.
