LIMERICK senior hurling manager John Kiely has wished Patrickswell man Conor Murray the best of luck in his role as British and Irish Lions captain.
Both Kiely and Murray face crucial fixtures this Saturday afternoon. While Kiely's Limerick senior hurlers open the defence of their Munster senior hurling title with a mammoth semi-final showdown with Cork at Semple Stadium Thurles at 7pm, Munster scrum-half Murray is due to lead the British and Irish Lions in the opening match of their South African tour against the Emirates Lions in Johannesburg also on Saturday at 5pm Irish time.
Both Limerick's Munster SHC clash with Cork and the Lions tour fixture against the Emirates Lions are live on Sky Sports TV.
