The mother of Limerick goalie Aaron Murphy is unimpressed with the fact that her son will be on the bench when they face Clare in the Munster championship in Thurles on Sunday.

The Hospital/Herbertstown goalkeeper is vying with Barry Hennessy for a starting berth against the Banner, following an injury to regular netminder Nickie Quaid.

While the team won't be officially announced until Thursday evening, it looks increasingly likely that Hennessy will get the nod.

Mrs. Murphy has taken to Twitter to vent her fury, claiming that her boy is a “victim” of Limerick GAA “politics” and urged sport reporters to highlight her son's plight.

She tweeted; "Politics again in Limerick GAA won, hope GAA reporters tell the story, if not from certain clubs or have the correct surname waste of time."

Hennessy was between the sticks for Kilmallock's run to the All-Ireland club final this year.
