Limerick Dominate the All-Stars Nominations

Posted by

What a great summer of hurling we had this year with Limerick winning their third All-Ireland in four years. The treaty men were simply superb again this year and have set a serious standard of hurling for the other county’s to catch up with.

John Kiely has certainly made his mark in the game and has kept his Limerick team level headed and it will take a serious team to beat this Limerick side. If you think back to the All-Ireland final last August against Cork the game was over before the first half. All 15 of the Limerick players that started that day have made the All-Star nominations. See the nominations below;
