WATCH: Barrett looks back on past two years at Limerick FC

Limerick FC manager Tommy Barrett felt the late 3-2 loss to Galway United on Monday night was harsh on his side considering how hard they battled to get back into the game.

On two occasions, it looked as though Limerick had secured a draw thanks to goals from Sean McSweeney and Lee Devitt which cancelled out strikes from Maurice Nugent and Cian Murphy. However. a late strike from Conor Barry secured all three points for the Tribesmen.

When asked about his future after the game, Barrett re-iterated that he was unsure of where he would be next season and looked back on his first two years with disappointment due to player turnover.

There was an expectation from the club that we would try to finish in the top four and I thought I put a good enough team together and used the budget wisely to finish in the top four. Again, we lost a lot of professionals.

We lost Connor Ellis, Will Fitzgerald and Killian Brouder. You add to that the players we have lost in the last few weeks and I am disappointed that it turned out like last year again. We didn’t learn from our mistakes by the looks of it. Limerick has been like this for 25 or 30 years and it has to change and the sooner the change comes the better.
