WATCH: “There’s always room for improvement”- Byrnes ready for 2020 season

Limerick will have their first competitive game since last years All-Ireland semi-final loss defeat to Kilkenny later this month when they face Tipperary in the Munster Hurling League.

That Kilkenny loss will provide motivation for Diarmaid Byrnes and co this year according to the Patrickswell man.

“Of course, it will spur us on. We know what we are capable of with what we have achieved in the last few years. You want to be there at the top, playing at the end but it is so competitive.”

And although the team have come on leaps and bounds since the arrival of John Kiely in 2017, Byrnes acknowledges that there is still room for improvement in the camp as they refuse to rest on their laurels.

“There’s always room from improvement no matter what it is. We’ll have a good think about it and rattle of it and hopefully have a few improvements.”
