Electric Ireland Munster Minor Football Championship Phase 1
Limerick v Clare, Newcastlewest, 6.45pm
Tipperary v Waterford, Sean Treacy Park, 6.45pm
Phase One of the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Football Championship commences on Wednesday evening.
In Newcastlewest Limerick face Clare, while Tipperary clash with Tom Guiry’s Waterford at Sean Treacy Park.
Having reached the last two provincial deciders at this level, Clare, managed by Dermot Coughlan, will be hoping to make an impact again.
Limerick, though, were competitive in 2018 and will be anxious to deliver in the four team group.
Joe Lee is in charge of Limerick, while James Ryan is the coach of the Treaty county minor footballers.
Tipperary are investing significant time and energy into the underage ranks also with manager Matt O’Doherty assembling a strong backroom team too.
The top two teams will contest the Phase 1 Final on May 7 with the winner advancing to the next stage involving Cork and Kerry.
