WATCH: “No added pressure for Limerick” – Aaron Gillane

Limerick’s senior hurlers are currently on the crest of a wave as they prepare to face Cork or Kilkenny in this year’s All-Ireland semi final on July 27th at Croke Park.

John Kiely’s men landed the Munster title a couple of weeks ago with a comprehensive victory over Tipperary and are aiming to reach their second All-Ireland Final in a row when they take to the field at GAA HQ.

Star forward, Aaron Gillane, insists that he hasn’t felt any added pressure this year following the All-Ireland, League and Munster wins, and says that all the success is great for Limerick hurling.

“It’s good times for Limerick. It’s great to have the three cups in Limerick for a chance. It’s important to celebrate them for a few days.

“They’re great achievements but after a few days you get sick of the celebrating and want to get back in training. Our heads are firmly focused for two weeks time.

“Winning is a habit and you want to keep it going for as long as you can. You might only be fortunate to play for Limerick for seven or eight years, so you kind of want to make hay when the sun shines.

“I don’t see why you would want to play if you don’t want to win everything. That’s our motto anyway.”

Gillane added that he feels that the bond forged with a large portion of the squad at underage level has also played a huge part in Limerick’s recent success.

“I think there has been 10, 11 or maybe 12 of us that have come from U-14 to the senior ranks and we just have a great bond.

“It’s like a club team at the moment. Everyone is willing to die for each other. It’s easy to go into an environment like that.

“We have the experienced people as well. The likes of Graeme (Mulcahy) and Nickie (Quaid). They have been great to us in our first year or two.

“I think we compliment each other well and at the moment it’s working out well for us.”
