2020 has been a very strange year in so many ways, it has been a great year for Limerick Hurlers, winning the Munster Senior League, Allianz Hurling League and Munster and All Ireland Hurling Championship, we CONGRATULATE the Players, Management and all involved in what has been a very special and historic year on Sunday in Croke Park.
Well Done also to the Minor Hurlers and Footballers on their Munster Championship victories on Saturday last, the hurlers defeated Cork to win a place in the Munster on this Sunday when they play Tipperary in Semple Stadium, Thurles.
