WATCH: John Kiely accepts Limerick hurlers 'struggled for long periods' in Tipperary win

LIMERICK hurling manager John Kiely accepted that his side "struggled for long periods" of this Sunday's Munster Championship victory over Tipperary.

Limerick scored 2-6 in the final 10-minutes to finally edge past Tipperary.

"They kept battling away and didn't panic," said John Kiely of his players.

"We got three quarters of the way through the game and I think Tipperary had been the better team up to that point but our lads coming off the bench made a very substantial contribution," outlined the Limerick manager.

"All told we would be disappointed with an awful lot our performance today - it lacked intensity that we would associate with our play."

Kiely spoke with media outside the Limerick dressing room in the TUS Gaelic Grounds after the 3-21 to 0-23 victory.
