BREAKING: Limerick will be permitted to bring full panel to All-Ireland final

After a number of players have been forced to watch Limerick’s journey to the All-Ireland final from home due to restrictions, it has now been confirmed that the entire squad will be permitted to attend the final.

Minister for State for Sport and the Gaeltacht, Jack Chambers earlier confirmed the decision.

This will come as a welcome boost to John Kiely who has pleaded with the GAA to allow all his panel to attend games which was echoed by Davy Fitzgerald on last night’s Sunday game.

After the win over Galway yesterday, Kiely said,

“If they don’t leave the players come for the final that would be a real travesty, that would be an absolute travesty. A massive mistake, an unforgivable mistake if they don’t leave the players come to the final, unforgivable.

”I hope that will because Level 5 restrictions are finished on Tuesday so I would hope they will, for both counties sakes. For the players sakes on both sides, it’s really important.”

Limerick are working with a panel of 36 players this year with 22 different members of the squad seeing championship game time thus far.
