Mulcahy: 'constant transition' key to Limerick success

Limerick's Graeme Mulcahy celebrates with Thomas Quaid at Croke Park

Graeme Mulcahy has credited Limerick’s rising stars for keeping their phenomenal run of success going.

John Kiely’s all-conquering charges completed a first-ever six-in-a-row of Munster SHC titles last Sunday and now have their sights set on an unprecedented five-in-a-row of Liam MacCarthy Cups.

"You can never get used to it," the long-serving Mulcahy told RTÉ.

"1996 up to 2013, there was a bit of a drought so to keep putting them back-to-back is a phenomenal achievement for this group of players.

"It's great for the supporters, they've been travelling in numbers all the time but since 2018 they've been on some journey and we want to make that journey continue.

"We're constantly changing in terms of approaching each game differently, there are different players making different impacts. I'd be used to featuring a lot, you can see the likes of Adam English and Shane O'Brien coming to the fore more, Cathal O'Neill as well. A lot of the youth coming through, that constant transition, building as we go.

"You're always looking over your shoulder, it's been like that for as long as I can remember. The likes of Donnacha Ó Dálaigh and Aidan O'Connor have been featuring a lot this year and really putting the pressure on."
