thats my problem katser, we launched everything at Cork and very little stuck... Limericks backs will eat up those aimless balls. I wouldnt rule out a win Sunday & a Whelan hatrick to boot!!

Agreed for the size of Conor Cooney and a few others they are like sheep in a Galway jersey.

They should be horsing lads out of it, hopefully Shefflin has them raring to go because it will take that and a huge performance to get over this Limerick team.

Whelan hattrick has a nice ring to it. About time a hurler of the year trophy comes back to Kinvara!

Conor Cooney must be the most frustrating hurler in Ireland as he has lots of ability but is too prone to inconsistency or blowing hot and cold a bit like Jason Flynn. Hopefully the next day will be one of his better days because if he is on the periphery of the action again Limerick will win handily enough.

We didn't really launch everything at Cork in fact I felt we just prodded along in 3rd gear and got the job done.
HS has being priming the team for this one...he surely set a target of the All Ireland Semi Final from the start.
I reckon Galway are going to hit them with everything and thunder into them.
I expect a red card or two from limrik!

I've travelled around a few of the stanch Galway hurling strongholds recently and the amount of Galway flags up is unreal!!!
Alot of the Galway posters on here must be living in coo-coo land the way they have given up on Galway and expect them to lose, because anyone I've been chatting reckon Galway will win!

Very few can sustain that and if a team gets to that level for 60 mins, Limerick eat them alive in the last 10. Looking forward to the weekends hurling though especially looking forward to seeing how the two Galway corner backs get on against Limerick and who picks up who. Both have been excellent. Limericks system may not suit how Burke plays though so that'll be interesting....he can't be dragged too far from goal. A couple of years ago I remember Gillane being really niggly against Galway so expecting some fireworks there too!

Has Kinvara had a hurler of the year previously? Your comment seems to indicate that it has.

I am sure no other team has put your innovative suggestions into place against this Limerick team over the past five years. If what Mike Casey had to say in the Irish Independent yesterday is anything to go by, himself and his Colleagues would relish the challenge.

Jesus lads. Just to win on Sunday. Just to get back into the final. Just to get that 2 week build up of excitement/nervousness/craic in the village. Just to get out on the batter after we win the final and spend the rest of the summer touring the parishes with the cup. just to believe... just get it done Sunday.

I'm not talking to a lad who basically said that Galway footballers are rubbish....like you did say football is boring?
So if something is boring it's no good, useless!
I'm a hurling stalwart put I'd still watch and support the Galway footballers!
You obviously don't realise football is harder to play than hurling!

As it stands "yer crowd " are doing all the talking and interviews with Casey in the paper and Kiely blowing how the team are in great shape with no injuries and almost a full squad! The way "they" are talking We might aswell stay at home!
No chat or interviews out of the Galway lads...everything is low key nice and quiet, the calm before the storm one expects.

Of course not, I mean Conor Whelan will be heading up to Dublin without one and I hope he brings one back!

Lol that is some interpretation right there. I'm a hurling man katser, from a long lineage of hurling blood. But your reply is what I expected, you didn't name any places with flags.

Both Shefflin and Joe Canning are in the papers to day blowing up Limerick, as you would expect them to do. No problem there. It will be all be taken wit large quantities of Saxa.

Fair play Katser. As the great Joe Connolly said once 'whether hurling or football we are Galway' or words to that affect. As I said previously I respect the Clare Sparrow academic knowledge of hurling but certainly have no time for the code narrow mindness. That maroon jersey either code does it for me and it is the narrow mindness imo that often holds us back. Every Galway person who can go on Sunday or on Saturday week should go and support the massive efforts made by our troops. For the record I think we will win on Sunday once we block the channels where Limerick have been most effective.
