The Life of a Goalkeeper
Just seen Limerick's second goal again and don't think that Waterford goalkeeper Stephen O'Keeffe will want to see it again as he gifts a three-pointer to Graeme Mulcahy.
Limerick received a standing ovation leaving the field at half time. A lot of souls searching for Waterford to do at the break, but it looks as if they will struggle to make the knockout stages.
Certainly, two of our games look set to go down to the wire as Tipp v. Clare and Carlow v. Laois are close contests, but the signs are not so good for Waterford who are trailing Limerick by 13 points (Munster SHC) and London who have a six-point deficit to make up against Louth (SFC qualifiers).
