Replying To Hurleybuoy:  "This team of kids have a number of players doing inter/leaving cert currently right, this has to be a hard time for them?? The limerick minors have come across as a well oiled machine so far in the Tipp & Cork games (lets forget about w'ford game for now) and i have a feeling they will come out fighting in Cusack park on Sunday. There were a few of us watching the warm up in the Gaelic Grounds Sunday, one commented (who would be better versed that me in this field) that he couldnt get over the standard of preperation, drills, conditioning and most importantly communication between Mgmt/Selectors and players. They have coached these kids up through the Academy, and arent on a wage for it BTW and it was clear to see that they all have a mutual respect for each other too. People talk about there being "Heart" in the Senior team, well you need not look as far as the Seniors for that, its starting us in the face with the Minors. I hope Limerick turns up to support our Minors on Sunday, they 100% deserve it."
Fair play and well said. You can really see the results of the academy really showing through now; young players who have been reared on playing the game in the right manner, using the ball to the benefit of each other and the team. When you see the size of the playing pool like I do in cork and compare it to what is in Limerick , you realise what you are getting out of the academy in limerick is outstanding - long may it last. Best of luck to them all on Sunday

Very enjoyable match yesterday and this team have a real inner belief in them against a good Clare team and a big crowd which was great for all the minors to play in front of. Bob Purcell was motm for me fine hurler and a physically imposing lad for his age. Well done to players and management and good luck July 1st.

Congratulations to the Limerick Minor Hurling team yesterday. Absolutely delighted for that win in front of such a huge crowd & with a tight game to the very end their composure was vital.
Purcell, Herlihy & Coughlan were outstanding and are a credit to the team. Looking forward to a head to head with Tipp in the Munster Final and I certainly think this team will go even futher than that with some silverware.

Well done Limerick minors a good result and bounced back well after the Waterford game. We might have had a bit of luck with the goal and Cathal O'Neill intercepting the puck out for the winning point. Bob Purcell has improved with every game and I like the go of midfield Kirby and O'connor. Its absolutely brilliant to see our minor teams the last few years doing so well.
