LISTEN – John Kiely “A moment to savor but there’s no medal given out.”

Limerick senior hurling boss John Kiely says that the key to his side keeping their cool in the closing stages of their All Ireland quarter-final win over Kilkenny was down to preparation.

“We were prepared for that. It’s nothing that changed we were prepared for that. We knew that was going to happen. They have the resolve to do those things on the field and that’s what it takes. You son’t deserve to be in an All Ireland semi-final unless you can do that.”

Kiely’s side showed immense character having gone behind late on to a Richie Hogan goal but doesn’t believe that the final five minutes against the Cats was a defining moment for his side.

“I don’t think so. It just qualifies us to go another step along the road. There’s been a load of moments that one could describe as key moments. The overriding factor is that these guys keep demonstrating ferocious qualities such as honesty, leadership and calmness on the ball. Those are the defining attributes of the team, there’s no such thing as a defining moment for the team. The team is defined by itself, by it’s own attributes, it’s own characteristics.”

“It’s a moment to savor but there’s no medal given out at the end of it.”
