ST Kierans bid to topple Limerick club football kingpins Newcastle West in the Bon Secours Hospital Limerick senior football league final this Tuesday evening.

After fighting off relegation issues in recent season, St Kierans captain Brendan McCarthy explains that finding early season form was the no1 target for the Ardagh side this season.

"We've had a positive start to the year - the last two years we were in relegation (Limerick SFC) so it was very important to get a good start to the league and thanks be to God we have got into the final and it's going to be a big challenge against Newcastle West but a challenge we are looking forward to," said the key defender.
