Limerick Fans Are Counting The Days For One Man To Make A Splash At Senior Level

Limerick are U-21 All-Ireland champions for the second time in three years, after a deserved victory over Kilkenny in the final. While it was far from the Treaty’s finest showing this summer, they had too much class for the Cats in a 0-17 to 0-11 win.

Few can argue with Limerick’s title, beating Tipperary, Clare, Cork, Galway and Kilkenny to claim the title.

There is now a hunger in the county to push on and deliver at senior level. Following back-to-back appearances in All-Ireland semi-finals in 2013 and 2014, the last three seasons have been largely disappointing. However, there is now a belief that the likes of Gillane, Barry Nash and Cian Lynch can spur the senior side on to challenge for honours in the coming years.

Gillane scored 44 points this season, as Limerick marched to the title, and came in for deserved plaudits following the game.

Gillane barely featured for the senior outfit in 2017, coming off the bench late on in their loss to Clare in the Munster semi-final.

If he keeps up this form, he can be one of the main men in the coming years.
