Limerick reclaim throne in style | Deise battle | Antrim rising | Kilkenny camogie glory

Analysis of Limerick’s All-Ireland SHC final win over Waterford, Kilkenny’s camogie glory, and Antrim’s glorious Joe McDonagh triumph

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney analyse the All-Ireland SHC final where Limerick regained their title with a 0-30 to 0-19 win over Waterford. We also review Kilkenny’s camogie final win, and Antrim’s glorious Joe McDonagh triumph.

Limerick are back on top of the hurling world after a convincing All-Ireland final win over Waterford on Sunday.

John Kiely’s men landed all trophies available to them in 2020, and his tenure has now returned two National League, two Munsters and two All-Ireland titles.

With 13 wins from 13 across four different competitions in a single season, they have cemented their place as a great hurling team.

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney conduct a rigorous analysis of their win over the Deise, and attempt to pinpoint why the Treaty seem to have pulled so far clear of the chasing pack.

Tom Morrissey and Gearoid Hegarty look to be the prototype wing-forwards in the current game, and the size advantage of Limerick makes up part of the discussion.

Kiely was clearly delighted with the victory, and how it banished the ghosts of 2019 where they were beaten in an All-Ireland semi-final by Kilkenny.

“We’re immensely proud of it, it’s an incredible achievement. We came in in 2017, we couldn’t win a championship match, we couldn’t get out of Division 1B.

“We went home soul-destroyed back in 2017. I haven’t forgotten that.

“We understand the value of winning a match. A match, let alone winning the games the boys have won this year.

“It’s a testament to the strength and depth of the panel. We lost Mikey Casey, Richie English wasn’t available to us this year, we lost Shane Dowling.

“But the players kept going. It was next man up, next man up.”
