WATCH: John Kiely praise for Limerick hurlers who 'fought valiantly' for win over Waterford

LIMERICK senior hurling manager John Kiely has praised his side as they 'fought valiantly' to secure the Munster SHC win over Waterford.

"I'm pleased with that performance because there was a huge challenge and we met quite a lot of resistance and there were a few conundrums we had to sort out along the way," said Kiely after the 0-30 to 2-21 win in the TUS Gaelic Grounds this Saturday evening.

Limerick were seven points clear when Waterford struck two quick-fire goal in the final 10-minutes.

Kiely said that the Limerick response to the goals was crucial.

"This team is very experienced now and when teams have their purple patch, I would back our lads to keep their heads and cope with that and that's exactly what they did - they didn't panic and kept doing the right things with the ball," said the Limerick manager.

Speaking with media after the three point win, Kiely lauded his for battling valiantly.
