Hurling

Former Limerick star O’Grady hopes they can ask serious questions early of Kilkenny

Semple Stadium is the place to be on Sunday for Kilkenny and Limerick fans

Former Limerick Senior Hurler Donal O’Grady says it’s important for Limerick to set the tone and ask questions of Kilkenny in Sunday’s All-Ireland Hurling Quarter-Final.

Speaking to KCLR, Donal says Limerick should try and make it as hard as possible for Kilkenny to settle.

“Just looking at the squad, Limerick are definitely in a good place as far as personnel goes.

“We have a nice strong squad, and I suppose a lot of the young lads have put their hand up and are playing very well for us but again Senior Championship hurling is so different.

“Kilkenny have that ruthless streak. A lot of times, Kilkenny go 7 or 8 points up it’s very hard to taper that back so I think it’s important for Limerick to set the tone on Sunday and take the game to Kilkenny and maybe ask them the questions,” he said.
