WATCH – John Kiely on Tipp’s exit and past meetings with Clare

Kiely says that Tipperary’s early exit from the championship is of little concern to his side.

The premier county crashed out at the round robin stages following a disappointing campaign. Limerick defeated Tipp by 1-23 to 2-14 in their round robin opener.

“I wouldn’t say it suits us. We’ve little or no control over how things pan out for other sides. I think we were just delighted to be in a position where we’ve qualified from the group.”

Attention will be solely focused on this Sunday’s final Munster Hurling Championship round robin encounter with the banner, where a win or a draw would ensure a first Munster final appearance since 2014 for Kiely’s side.

“We’ve played Clare in 2016, 2017, we’ve played them in the Munster League, we played them in the quarter final of the national league. We’ve had a lot of encounters over recent times and it’s fair to say at championship level they’ve had the upper hand in recent years.”
