LIMERICK GAA fixture revealed a proposed outline of fixtures for 2019.

The Club Master Fixture list for the year ahead is to be ready for the February County Board meeting with clubs asked to forward any potential changes to Limerick GAA Secretary Mike O’Riordan in the coming days.

Like last year , there will be two rounds of Limerick SHC and IHC in April and two rounds of county SFC and IFC.

It is proposed to play three rounds of Limerick Premier IHC in April.

The Limerick SHC, IHC and PIHC will start on the weekend of April 11th-14th with round two on April 18th-21st.Round three of the PIHC is set for April 25th-28th.

The top three tiers of Limerick club hurling championship would then break until after the inter-county championship at the end of July-August.

The Limerick SFC and IFC is set for a March 28th-31st start with round two on April 4th-7th.

The group stages of the county JAFC will commence in July.

While the championship schedule is similar to last season, there are changes proposed to the All County Leagues.

The hurling and football league grouping won’t change but it is hoped to play games on weekends and to have finals in all divisions with cups for each winner – the top two in each division playing in the final.

It is planned to start the All County Football League across the first week of March and to play for the next three weekends.

The All County Hurling League won’t start until the weekend of May 10th- 12th and will have a run of three successive weekends to start.

With no ACHL games prior to the championship it is hoped that the varying divisional SHC games will be scheduled for the month of March.

The Premier U-21 hurling championship is to commence on February 5th and games will be played on Tuesday nights. There are two groups of four teams so each club will be guaranteed three games ahead of the knockout stages.

All dates are the proposed dates as detailed by Limerick GAA Secretary Mike O’Riordan and Limerick GAA CCC Chairman Seamus McNamara at the January County Board Meeting Tuesday night 22nd January held at The Woodlands House Hotel Adare where there was a very good attendance of Club Delegates..

The finalised Master Fixture list will be rubber stamped at the February County Board Meeting.
