Away to Na Piarsaigh, Saturday March 7th, 2020. Throw in 3pm.
Home versus Galbally, Saturday March 14th, 2020. Throw in 3pm.
Well done to the Limerick Senior Hurlers who defeated Westmeath at the weekend by 9 points. Next up is Waterford, this Saturday night at the Gaelic Grounds.
Disappointment on the football front for both U20s and Senior sides who were defeated by Kerry and Antrim in the past week, respectively. Limerick still top the table and have a weekend off before welcoming Wexford. Promotion to Division 3 is still achievable.
