Will O’Donoghue on clubmate: “Even if Shane (O’Neill) was playing for Galway on Sunday, it would mean nothing to me”

Dancing for charity, coming on in an All-Ireland, why players should not be left at home for matches, and talk of Limerick’s invincibility

Will O’Donoghue on dancing for charity, coming on in an All-Ireland, why players should not be left at home for matches, and all the talk about Limerick being invincible.

Will O’Donoghue scoffs at the significance of his clubmate and former Limerick hurler Shane O’Neill being manager of Galway.

Sunday will be the first time since the 2018 All-Ireland final that the Tribe will have met Limerick in the championship, with a place in the 2020 decider at stake.

The Treaty are favourites after retaining their league and Munster crowns in recent weeks, while Galway lost a Leinster final to Kilkenny before beating Tipperary last weekend.

O’Donoghue won an All-Ireland club title with Na Piarsaigh in 2016, with O’Neill as manager, and now the pair will be in opposing camps this weekend.

“To be honest, I know stuff is being made of it and people trying to put a significance on it,” says O’Donoghue.

“Even if Shane was playing for Galway on Sunday, it would mean nothing to me.

“I get on well with Shane, we had a very good working relationship and a friendly relationship while he was Na Piarsaigh manager, and continue to do so.

“He only lives around the corner but, for me, it has no bearing on what’s coming on Sunday and there’s no emotional attachment to the sentiment of the occasion.

“It couldn’t be further from the cut and thrust of what’s coming on Sunday.”

O’Donoghue was part of a fantastic initiative during the summer (#HitTheWoahForMilfordHospice) that saw the Limerick players raise funds for the Milford Hospice by releasing fun videos

The Na Piarsaigh man reenacted a famous scene from the Hugh Grant movie Love Actually, and reminisced on the making of it.
