Limerick Board take hurling management to task

Limerick GAA chiefs revealed they took the county senior hurling management to task following a below-par performance in Division 1B of the Allianz Hurling League.

Limerick Board take hurling management to task

The Shannonsiders missed out on promotion largely because of a draw with Offaly in their second-last game and county secretary Michael O’Riordan told Tuesday’s county board meeting top officials had met with TJ Ryan and Donal O’Grady to air their grievances.

“They basically apologised for the performance against Offaly in particular — they put their hands up,” he said.

“We basically outlined the dissatisfaction of the board to the league — we went through every aspect of the performances during the league and in particular the Galway game.

“I think everybody here will agree the second-half performance against Galway was very disappointing.

“I was going through the Gaelic Grounds after the game and people were full of venom, is the word that I would use they were so disappointed. They had paid €20 to go in and it was abysmal.

County chairman Oliver Mann echoed O’Riordan’s sentiments.

“We are all disappointed and there is no doubt about that,” he said, “even more disappointed than coming out of Thurles last year after Dublin beat us.

Meanwhile, Derry have made 13 changes for Sunday’s Allianz Football League Division 1 semi-final clash with Mayo in Croke Park (2pm).

For last weekend’s final game in the regular schedule – also against Mayo – Brian McIver and his selectors had made 14 alterations from the win over Kildare as the Oak Leaf County were already qualified.

Of that side, corner-back Oisín Duffy retains his place ahead of Gareth McKinless, while Emmet McGuckin moves from midfield to full-forward, where he featured for much of the league campaign. Mayo and Dublin are due to name their sides this evening.
