Marie Curtin: We have nothing to lose

It has been some return to inter county football for Marie Curtin. Having spent a long time on the soccer playing fields Curtin answered Limerick Managers Andy Meaney’s call to return this season and already, she has capped off a fine season by picking up a player of the year award in Division 4.

“I suppose I take a lot of frees and people might take that into consideration” Curtin modestly said at the recent launch. “There were a few more players in our team that could have made it too but it’s a great honour and one you take on behalf of your team”

While she may not have been involved last season she is well aware of the task ahead for a very young Limerick side. “It’s a real uphill battle, both Tipperary and Waterford are a division ahead of us and both have the experience of reaching All Ireland finals, while we are still developing,” she said

Looking back on the league campaign, she feels there was many positives despite not reaching the final. “I think we used the league to develop ourselves and we did very well for some games but were not at the races for some. Finding a degree of consistency is certainly a problem but when you have such a young squad, you are going to run into the difficult times like Exams and that disrupts your preparation a lot.

“But we have a great spirit in the camp at the moment and we have done a lot more work this season and I think we will give a good account of ourselves against both of the other teams,” she added.

While Limerick may well carry the outsiders tag, not having ever won the Intermediate title in Munster they are a team that troubled both Tipperary and Waterford at stages last season “I think what beat us in the end last season was that we were not physically enough for the challenge. We have worked on this a lot this season and I think we will see a more sustained effort this season,” she concluded.
