O'Riordan looks to avoid repeat row

Limerick secretary Mike O'Riordan has pledged that everything possible will be done to avoid a repeat of the bitter dispute which gripped the county in the wake of former manager Justin McCarthy's decision to axe several high profile players at the end of 2009.

"Since October 12 months ago this county has been dragged through the depths of what can only be described as torture. All sides were wrong, there is no two ways about that," O'Riordan says in his report to county convention.

"Lessons have been learned and we will endeavour to make sure events like this will never occur again.

"There always has to be an avenue open for dialogue, irrespective of the situation. I know the abuse the players, team management and our officers had to endure was hard and often unimaginable."
