Last Sunday Limerick picked up their first win of the season with a comprehensive 20-point win over Waterford in Walsh Park.
After such a disappointing opening round game against Cork, Limerick will look to improve once more as they welcome Clare to the Gaelic Grounds on Sunday.
For manager John Kiely, he says his side will need to improve on the Waterford performance if they are to get a result.
“Whoever can get the best performance out of themselves next Sunday is going to win and that’s the bottom line.”
“We generally improve on each game, so I’m hoping we take it up another notch on Sunday, and I think we’ll need to.”
The last time these sides met in the munster championship at the Gaelic Grounds was in 1996 where a wonderful Ciaran Carey point would prove to be the difference as Limerick defeated the then All-Ireland champions.
Speaking about the classic, Kiely remembers the game fondly.
“It was a great dual between two of the best sides in the country at the time.
“It was an amazing game, capped off with an amazing score.”
However, he is still fully focused on the importance of this Sunday.
“Who knows what’s going to happen on Sunday but 1996 is not high on my priorities right now!”
