The searing sunshine was a concern for the Limerick camogie star before the throw-in

Anybody interested in 2 Mumford and Sons tickets 14th of July have a seperate engagement #MunsterFinal #Beaming

Declan Hannon could have a problem selling those concert tickets to a Limerick person

Des Cahill, RTE @sportsdes

I have a feeling a lot of tv’ in the #Limerick area will be tuned into

RTE 2 at 9.30pm tonight...!

There won’t be a cow milked in Moyross tonight #gaa #limerick

Marty Morrissey’s line from 1992 never grows old

I take my hat off to John Allen. We learned from last year and got the tactics spot on! What a day! #limerick

Managers can often get a hard time online but Tadhg Keating was quick to give credit where it was due

If anybody doubted what sport means to the people of #Limerick should look at the fans reaction to beating Tipp #firstround #greatcity

Conor Murray

@ConorMurray_9

@paddybutler8 hard luck in the old hurlin nut! #nextyear

We never had more kids at juvenile club training than this evening, amazing the boost a big win can give a county #limerick #gaa2013

Great to see the immediate boost that the win affords all in Limerick GAA

Anyone want to have a church gate collection to fly me home around the 14 July?? Hate been away at times like this

This proud Garryspillane woman finds herself in Australia at present but it’s easy to know where her heart is

Tom Condon @TCondon4
