LISTEN: John Kiely “We did the job that needed to be done”

LISTEN: John Kiely says Limerick “did the job that needed to be done” against Carlow.

Limerick eased past Carlow to set up a mouth watering All Ireland quarter final with Kilkenny next weekend with the details to be confirmed by the GAA on Monday.

In the aftermath of his side’s 5-22 to 0-13 points win over the McDonagh Cup Champions at Dr Cullen Park, John Kiely was speaking to the media and says he was happy with the overall performance from his side.

“We came and did the job that needed to be done, we got a really good scoreline overall. We put some decent moves together and a few more just didn’t kind of come off at times, very happy with the intensity levels overall and I thought they applied themselves to the game well.”

Limerick stared well with a Kyle Hayes goal inside the opening minute but would wait another ten minutes before the would get their second score. In the meantime, Carlow hit some poor wides and should have had more to show for their efforts.

The visitors would take total control and never look back after goals from Gillane and Mulcahy pushed them further ahead. Kiely admitted that bigger a bigger challenge lies ahead and Limerick’s attention will now turn to next week.

“Obviously there is going to be a huge step up again next weekend and that’s where our focus turns straight away for that quarter final. . . . For us, recovery starts straight away and the recovery starts straight away,” said Kiely.
