We pick out the best Limerick sports tweets of the weekend.

Seanie Buckley @seaniebuckley

“#roadtocroker with the sun shining.. Dubs will do the business, I reckon, by just 2 points. Paul Flynn MOTM . Should be some game..”

Limerick football captain Seanie Buckley was looking forward to his day out in Croke Park. He wasn’t too far off with his prediction either

Niamh Mulcahy @niamh_mulcahy

“4 all ireland losses in 10 years!! more heartbreaking than limerick hurling!! #PoorMayo”

Limerick camogie star Niamh Mulcahy reckons Limerick hurling supporters can empathise with the football folk in Mayo

Stephen Lavin @franksunday

“Man . . I’m depressed . . And I’m from Limerick . Mayo remind me of the Buffalo Bills 1990-1993 . . I’m gutted for them #BounceBackAbility”

Limerick footballer Stephen Lavin was taking Mayo’s loss badly. But he also got in a nice reference to the Buffalo Bills American Football team of the 90s. Even more impressive was the use of that brilliant Bouncebackability word in his hashtag

Liam Aherne @laherne95

“Hoping Mayo do it this weekend. Have nothing against the Dubs and reckon we will have a cracker but Mayo remind me of Limerick.. Hon Mayo”

Limerick’s Live 95FM’s Liam Aherne was also hoping Mayo would do it

Paul Browne @brownie89

“Pat Spillane on about chatting up women in Adelaide, someone in RTE switch to the action on the field fast!! #CarCrashTV”

Limerick hurler Paul Browne wasn’t too impressed with Pat Spillane’s pre-match musings on RTE

Stephen Kelly @kelly82stephen

“Only 4mins.... injuries all over the place...9 subs...cynical fouling....well done ref!!!!”

Another of the Limerick footballers, Stephen Kelly, wasn’t overly impressed with Joe McQuillan’s refereeing in the All Ireland final

Henry Martin @henrymartin1

“Mayo are the football equivalent of Limerick hurlers. Curses, Piseogs, Heartbreak, Hype, No Luck, Non Performances in Croker”

Henry Martin was another to draw comparisons between the long-suffering Mayo footballers and the long-suffering Limerick hurlers

John Crawford @crawfordjonny

“the great podge collins in UL library #allirelandweek”

Jonny Crawford spotted Clare hurler Podge Collins doing a bit of study in UL on Monday morning for what is the start of a big week for the Cratloe man

Young Munster @youngmunsterrfc

“First team have lost in the first round of the Munster Senior Cup to @cashelrugby final score 27-18”

The detail in the tweet doesn’t do justice to the biggest surprise of the weekend in the Munster Senior Cup when Young Munster were shocked by Cashel

Richmond RFC @RichmondRFC

“Disappointing result for the seniors today losing 70-10 to garryowen in the senior cup. Tries by pearce mc carthy and Brian begley..”

Richmond found the going tough against Garryowen but they should be better positioned in AIL Division 2B which kicks off this weekend

David Mahedy @davidmahedy

“Super article Tony Ward in today’s @IndoSport on lack of IRFU support 7s Rugby it’s a great game & should be promoted = more participation”

Dave Mahedy of the UL Sports Arena enjoyed Tony Ward’s column and reckoned that 7s rugby offers the IRFU a great opportunity the expand the game’s playing base
