Limerick senior hurling manager John Kiely has stressed that the must improve their efforts for the 2018 campaign.
Kiely stated that their efforts in 2017 were not good enough, but having won the All-Ireland under-21 title earlier this year, the future was certainly bright for the county.
Kiely was speaking at the hurlers' fight night which was held in the South Court Hotel last weekend.
"I, the backroom team, the management team and the players were not happy with our lot out of last year but we are going to redouble our efforts to make sure we get where we want to get this year.
"We are really looking forward to the year ahead - we are going to leave no stone unturned over the next eight months. We are hugely united - we might fight in the ring but when we leave here we are a hugely united bunch of guys totally focused on one thing and is May 20th next year."
