Limerick boss John Kiely says his side are relishing the opportunity to travel to Salthill and take on Galway for a shot at league promotion.

The game, which is fixed for this Sunday afternoon at Pearse Stadium, could well fall victim to adverse weather conditions as the GAA get ready to make a call on the weekend's fixtures tomorrow.

However, Kiely's tone suggests that the Shannonsiders won't be any less up for the occasion if it were to be put back by a week.

"It's going to be billed as the big one but ultimately we are always comparing to last year when we stacked up for 35-40 minutes of those games and now we have to stack up for 75-80 minutes next week and see where we are at," Kiely is quoted saying by the Limerick Leader.

"We are looking forward to going to Pearse Stadium - we travel well, we don't mind travelling, we love playing at home of course but we love travelling and enjoy being on the road and you can see that from results this year when we have won every game."

He added: "There are some phenomenal supporters out there and I hope they get behind the team as we move forward. I think people can see that there are a lot of positives there at the moment and we would only be too delighted for people to join us on our journey."
