Limerick’s Sean O’Dea named on Team of the Week


THE Kilteely Dromkeen man is the fourth Limerick man to make the team over the course of the eight games.

Limerick corner back Sean O’Dea has been named at corner back on the Team of the Week. Earlier today, his teammate Iain Corbett was named in the position for the Team of the League.

O’Dea was given the unenviable task of keeping tabs on League top scorer and Louth dangerman Sam Mulroy who he kept to one point from play in the game.

O’Dea was also a willing support runner in attack as Limerick built from the back with a strong running style.

Ultimately it was a disappointing day for O’Dea and co as they fell to a 1-14 to 0-12 defeat with promotion already secured.

He is joined on the team by four from Kerry, who were crowned Division One champions on Sunday with Jason Foley, Gavin White, Paul Geaney and David Clifford on the team.
