“They’re at the prime of their powers but we’re not too bad ourselves” | Liam Sheedy looks ahead to Limerick

Tipperary take on Limerick in the Munster Senior Hurling Final this Sunday in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Despite winning an All-Ireland title in his maiden year back in charge of Tipp, Liam Sheedy has yet to taste Munster honours in his second stint in charge of the Premier.

Up against them is the reiging Munster champions, Limerick who are seeking a three in a row of provincial titles.

And Sheedy admitted that his side will be up against it on Sunday.

“It’s gas listening to the commentary after where they said Limerick were a bit off. If we beat Cork by eight points I think we would be happy enough coming home on the bus.

“They’re a really good team and they play a good brand of hurling. They’re physically well prepared and there’s a lot of experience in the group.

“They’re at the prime of their powers but we’re not too bad ourselves.”

However, Sheedy is fully confident in his side with thirteen of the starting XV that defeated Clare in the Munster semi-final also named to start the 2019 All-Ireland final.

In addition to that, the squad is filled with U20 All-Ireland winners with Sheedy’s troops well equipped to handle “big moments”.

“I can get where people are coming from as reigning Munster and All-Ireland champions. If you were to poll all the pundits they would say Limerick but that’s why we do these jobs and that’s why we relish these challenges.

“There will be big moments in this game and my team are used to these big moments and winning these big matches.

There’s a good belief in my group and a good camaraderie. Anything they have been asked to do, they have done it. We’re really looking forward to it.”

Throw in at Pairc Ui Chaoimh is 4.15pm on Sunday with the game live on RTÉ 2.
