Limerick claimed the Liam MacCarthy Cup with a commanding 0-30 to 0-19 victory over Waterford at Croke Park today.

The first-half was close and John Kiely's men went in three points in front at half-time, 0-14 to 0-11.

However, the second-half saw them pull away as they showed their class.

Limerick captain Declan Hannon delivered an emotional speech following the victory.

Hannon, 28, dedicated part of the victory speech to frontline workers who have put themselves at risk to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hannon said: “I want to mention the frontline staff who've worked so tirelessly throughout this pandemic.

“The respect that we have for you all, in going out there each day to keep us safe, is absolutely fantastic. It doesn't go unnoticed by us, so thank you very, very much.

“2020 has been an incredibly tough year. Businesses have been closed, people have lost their jobs, I know a a lot of loved ones have passed away this year who really would have loved to be here.

“To those families, we think of you every day. You inspire us, we wish you were here, but no doubt they're all looking down from heaven on top of us today, smiling their way down.”

Here are some of the most striking images from Limerick's triumph today.
