“The retirement of Richie McCarthy just announced this morning brings to an end the intercounty career of one of the finest and most popular ever Limerick full backs.
Thanks for the memories Richie

📸 View of Croke Park Stadium from Upper Hogan Stand. Limerick v Kilkenny, All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Semi-Final, Saturday, July 27 2019.

The 2018 All-Ireland Champions Limerick lose out on a place in this years All-Ireland Final by a single point to Kilkenny, on a scoreline of 1-21 (24) to 2-17 (23).

Limerick will feel that they left themselves with too much of a mountain to climb early on in this game. They trailed Kilkenny 1-08 to 0-02 after 17 minutes and gallantly fought back only to be denied at the final whistle by a point. The players will feel they played within their capabilities.

The group of players and management have done themselves and everyone in Limerick proud and I’ve no doubt that they will regroup, refocus and return a revitalised team for Championship 2020 💚
