Aaron Gillane says Limerick’s hurlers are firmly focussed on their Munster SHC opener against Cork next month.

Having added the 2019 national hurling league crown to their stunning Liam MacCarthy success last August, John Kiely’s men will entertain the defending provincial champions in the second round of this year’s Munster round-robin series:  

“We can't even afford to look past our first match on May 19th against Cork, and if we do that we haven't a hope of winning a Munster. Obviously, it would be great to win a Munster, but our focus is firmly on beating Cork at the moment,” Gillane told

“The League is good to give us a bit of confidence, but at the end of the day it's the league. Sure what good is it if you get knocked out of Munster?

“There's always a few surprises. There's always teams in Munster that will surprise people and could go all the way to the All-Ireland final, and some teams people will tip to get out of Munster are going to get knocked out.”
