The decade that was 2010-2019 is fast coming to an end.
For the Limerick hurlers, it was a mixed decade that started with a protest but would ultimately deliver a first All-Ireland title in 45 years.
Overall, Limerick won one All-Ireland title, Two Munster Championships, a Division 1 League Title and A Division 2 League title.
Over the next fifteen days in the lead up to Christmas, I will select my team of the decade that saw Limerick play 40 championship games and 68 League games.

Left Half Back
Honours: Munster Senior Hurling Championship, Division 2 League title
O’Mahony is incredibly unfortunate to have retired from intercounty hurling the winter before Limerick’s All-Ireland success with the Kilmallock man a staple of the side since his debut last decade.
O’Mahony was captain of the Limerick minor side who lost out an All-Ireland final to Joe Canning’s Galway in 2005.
He made his debut for the senior side a couple of years later and proved his versatility for his county lining out at wing-back, centre-back, midfield and centre-forward in his time with the squad.
Brilliantly skilled, as natural a hurler as you’re likely to see, O’Mahony had it all.
Honourable Mention: Paudie O’Brien
O’Mahony’s club teammate Paudie O’Brien was a top performer for Limerick at wing-back through the middle part of the decade, opening the scoring in the 2013 Munster Final.
