LISTEN: John Kiely “I felt we weren’t going to lose that game right the way through.”

John Kiely hugely proud of Limerick squad in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Limerick can count themselves unlucky not to have come away from Pairc Ui Chaoimh with the spoils after a brilliant display in Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday night. After losing captain Declan Hannon early in the game through injury and Aaron Gillane to a sending off in the first period, Limerick battled well and held the lead for majority of the second half.

Speaking directly after the game, Limerick manager John Kiely was incredibly proud his troops in the face of a number of obstacles in Cork.

“Pride is the most overriding feeling that I have. Very proud of our players and the manner in which they saw out the whole game. They showed huge composure and saw the game out in a way in which i was very proud of because they never panicked.

“I felt very secure in the fact that we weren’t going to lose that game right the way through.”

Limerick fell behind to a soft Pat Horgan goal in the 45th minute after just equalising moments before. Kiely was delighted with the response to the goal with Limerick going on to score eight of the next eleven scores to take the initiative once again with his young side showing tremendous composure and courage.

“Our response to that goal was superb and I think a very valuable point from our perspective.”
