Davy Fitzgerald took the meaning of trench warfare to a whole new level before yesterday's Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-final

Clare boss Fitzgerald, who is also the Limerick IT manager, had his players tog out at their Moylish base before the team boarded a bus across the city for the derby clash with University of Limerick.

According to onlookers, LIT then accessed the UL GAA grounds through a thicket of bushes from the main road.

Both teams ended up warming up for the game at the same end of the pitch and it is also believed that LIT may have used UL cones during their pre-match drills.

Fitzgerald's mind games produced the goods against his former Clare team-mate and UL manager Brian Lohan as 6/1 outsiders LIT claimed a shock win in front of an estimated 3,000 spectators.
