It's unlikely to spark the kind of scenes that befell the Gaelic Grounds in the wake of this year's All-Ireland win, but, for what it's worth, Limerick have won this year's Fenway Hurling Classic in Boston.
For John Kiely, it acted as a nice concluding note on a remarkable year. Speaking in the immediate aftermath of tonight's final between Limerick and Cork, the All-Ireland winning manager was happier with what he had managed to avoid, however.
Having repeatedly stated throughout his various interviews on how cold it was on the field, Kiely had periodically added layers as the night wore on.
To celebrate their latest success, some of the more excitable Limerick players had decided to mark the occasion with the typically American sight of drowning the manager.
"They're mad for their fun these guys," Kiely reflected afterward.
Shortly thereafter, Kiely's complacency to the threat appeared to let him down. Although it's difficult to ascertain whether or not this was the attempt Kiely thought he'd escaped unscathed, it looks like the players got him fairly well.

He took it very well given how cold it appeared to be in Boston this evening.
