Limerick produced a stunning final 10 minutes to see off Galway on a 0-27 to 1-21 scoreline in yesterday’s All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park.
Three late scores from David Reidy (2) and Diarmaid Byrnes saw Kiely’s men into a decider against Kilkenny in two weeks time.
It was an almighty effort from John Kiely’s men to hold off the Tribesmen’s challenge with the Limerick manager saying that the character showed ensured passage to the 2022 final.
The character was incredible. We trust our group. There is incredible unity within our group. That’s never been in doubt.
The only thing I ever hate to do is to lose a game without us producing that on the pitch. That unity, togetherness and resilience that we pride ourselves on.
That would be something that I would like not to see happen. I know, these guys, every day deliver that.
We will hit wides, we will misplace passes, we will miss a few chances here and there, we will concede scores but ultimately we know, at the end of the day, if we keep at it we will give ourselves a chance.
