WATCH: “We got exactly what we expected from Cork,” – Kiely

Limerick opened their Munster SHC campaign with a 1-26 to 1-19 loss to Cork at the LIT Gaelic Grounds this afternoon.

John Kiely’s All-Ireland champions put in a sluggish display and now face a must win game against Waterford on June 2nd to have any realistic chance of making the top three in Munster this year.

Limerick led at half time but were hit with a Cork wave in the second half and the Rebels came away with a well deserved victory.

“We got what we expected. We got a good performance from Cork. They lost their game last week and they dug deep and found a performance. It was better than our performance today.

“We coped well with that in the first half. I thought we did very well. We showed plenty of energy and created plenty of scoring changes.

“I thought we were in a really good position at half time but Cork showed the greater urgency in the second half.

“They showed the greater hunger in the second half and were first to the ball far more often. That’s the bottom line. If you’re not on the ball and don’t take your chances, you ain’t going to have a chance.”
