WATCH: John Kiely praises retiring duo of McCarthy and Browne

On the 20th December Limerick kick-off their 2020 campaign as they welcome All-Ireland champions Tipperary to the Gaelic Grounds for the opening game of the Munster Hurling League.

For the first time since 2010 Limerick will be without both Richie McCarthy and Paul Browne as both men retired from the intercounty scene in recent weeks.

Limerick manager John Kiely, speaking at the launch of the 2020 Co Op Superstores Munster Hurling League praised both men for their commitment over the years.

“Richie McCarthy was an incredible player with Limerick over the past 10/12 years. He was involved with me with the intermediates in 2012 and look what he went on to do after that.

“An incredible full back, a super guy and hard worker with great skill. Always seemed to have time on the ball. Has marked some greats over the years and always acquitted himself really well.

“We wish him well on his retirement.

“Paul Browne retired aswell. Paul has been a powerhouse around midfield. Huge energy levels, great speed, good first touch. He really drives at teams down the channels and great to chip in with a few points. Just an all-round brilliant guy.

“Great leadership from both guys in the camp and they both would have been super on the training field, really good in the dressing room with the younger lads so we have an awful lot to be grateful for.

“All we can do is wish them well in their retirement.”
