“Some days you have to grind it out and today, for me, was one of those days. Just get the job done and get out.”

John Kiely and Limerick are one win away from a first league title since 1997.

“We learned a lot again today, and that’s what we’re here for.”

It has been a productive campaign from Mattie Kenny and Dublin’s point of view.

“We’ll be playing against the best team in the country in Limerick. They’ve shown how well they’ve responded to winning the All-Ireland last year and we know we have a massive challenge. But isn’t it brilliant to be there.”

Paraic Fanning is hoping his Waterford team can spring a surprise on the Treaty County in Sunday’s decider.

“He’s literally still being assessed by our medical team, so until they determine what it is, we’ll be acting upon it  tonight or tomorrow, I’m sure.”

Galway boss Micheal Donoghue is sweating over the fitness of talisman Joe Canning who was stretchered off the Nowlan Park field.
