“Limerick have been a huge surprise and nobody was tipping them to be in the final at the start of the campaign,” says Connolly. “But what’s impressive is the amount of goals they are scoring and goals win games, so that’s why Limerick are there.
“But what a signing for Louth GAA Mickey Harte was. Bringing them up two divisions in two years is an unbelievable job, it’s incredible really to be honest.
“He’s got them playing well, he’s brought in new young lads who want to play and they really are buying into his system.
“I think they will just have enough for Limerick with Mickey Harte’s tactical nous and his knowledge of Croke Park, knowing how big the spaces are. Limerick are just behind Louth in that respect.”
