Munster Senior Hurling and Football Championships
Well done to the Limerick Senior Footballers who recorded a comprehensive victory over Tipperary on Saturday in their Munster Senior Football Championship Quarter Final. A first win the Munster Championship since 2012 means Limerick will travel to Cork on the June weekend to contest for a place in the Munster Final. Best of luck to all involved.
The Senior Hurlers begin their campaign next Sunday when they welcome Cork to the LIT Gaelic Grounds. Following a memorable 2018 and a successful 2019 NHL campaign, we wish William O’Meara and the entire set up the very best of luck for the Championship.
Tickets for the Cork game are selling as a brisk pace and supporters are advised to purchase as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. These can be purchased from tickets.ie, SuperValu and Centra outlets.
Tickets for the Waterford match will not be only public sale and will be distributed through clubs only. More information will be made available in the lead up to this match.
