Limerick won their fourth All-Ireland in five years and three in a row and a lot of people on twitter have started giving out that Limerick have an unfair advantage in JP McManus. It’s well know that JP McManus has done a lot for Limerick GAA and for the county and country in general.
But a lot of people have mixed views on this and have taken to twitter to share their opinion, see it below;
Of course it matters. No more so than the time and resources it allows players to put in their sport which is an amateur game.
The physical conditioning of those Limerick hurlers is freakish, maybe they have more time to devote to their game than other counties.

JP McManus pumps serious money into Limerick businesses, organisations and charities because of his pride in his home county and should be encouraged to do so.
But, at the end of the day, if the team doesnt have the players, money can only do so much. https://t.co/PqhGg7JpbK

If it didn't help why would he give it? All those little inches money buys add up. It stands to reason. But of course you need good players with commitment to make it work. Benefactors are a very grey area in GAA which I doubt the organisation has any appetite to address.

The Dubs were getting attacked non stop that financial doping was making the difference – now that financial doping is taking place with a different team its everything but the money. The fitness of Limerick in the last 10 minutes to win games is due to superior S&C & nutrition!

every cat & dog in the county would be expected to drink their fair share too. Unfortunately football is too much of a drain on resources in our county. I was horrified to hear the County Board bought socks & shorts for the footballers last Sunday & then after winning bought them

You can say what you want about Limerick and their investor, but this Limerick team are a special bunch of players and they’re led by the right man in John Kiely. Will they do the four in a row next year?
