“I suppose any day you come down here it’s always going to be a good game. There’s a good home crowd and there’s a good travelling Galway crowd as well in fairness so it made for a great game,” Burke said.

“Everybody knows the standard that Limerick bring to the game so it’s all about coming down and trying to match that as best you can.”

When asked about Shefflin’s style of managing, Burke revealed that the Kilkenny man’s love for the game is very apparent.

“I suppose everyone knows what Henry has done as a player so all you can do is learn off him,” Burke explained.

“There’s no stats, there’s no nothing. It’s just go out and hurl and enjoy yourself. I think everybody loves that, it’s all you want at the end of the day.”
