Well it is a proposition tbat can be argued. They are almost certainly the best team that ever came out of Munster."]For me, just my opinion, it's very hard to compare different eras. But as far as Munster goes the Cork team from 1941 to 1956 won 8 AIs from 10 appearances including a four in a row. The Tipp team from 1958 to 1968 won 5 AIs from 8 appearances, although John Doyle himself won 8 AI medals from 1949 to 1968, while Jimmy won 6 from 1958 to 1971. The current Limerick team has won 5 AIs from 6 appearances. Certainly if they win the 5 in a row Id consider them better than the great Tipp team. To be considered better than the 40s/50s Cork team, or the Kilkenny team who won 8 AIs from 9 appearances from 2006 to 2015, or the Kilkenny team from 1904 to 1913 who win 7 AIs and mightve won one more had they not refused to take part in 1908, they'd want to win a few more AIs and keep appearing in a few more finals. Certainly they are one of the greatest of all time as it is."]I agree it's impossible to meaningfully compare teams (and indeed players) from different eras. The great teams from KK, Cork and Tipp in the past operated in a very different environment - difficult playing conditions, much heavier ball etc. It can be argued that the Munster and Leinster championships that they played in were not as competitive as nowadays. On the other hand, there was no "second chance" until 1997. One bad day and you were gone. The game and the structures have changed so much over the last few decades, but having said that, the current Limerick team, whether they achieve 5-in-a-row or not, will surely go down in history as one of the greatest of all time."]As I said, "certainly they are one of the greatest of all time as it is""]No point at all mentioning the Cork41 to 54, as only one 41 player was there even by 52 and the same with Tipp in 58 and 71.

They'd have been good, had they been allowed to be good! Keep the foot on the throat of Cork and Tipp while you have them down!
