Limerick and Waterford played out their Munster Minor Championship clash in woeful conditions at the same venue on Tuesday.
Limerick’s U20 Munster Hurling Championship opener with Waterford this evening has been postponed due to the weather conditions. The sides met in dreadful conditions at the Fraher Field on Tuesday evening with large areas of water on the pitch.
As a result, this evening’s game will now be played on Saturday afternoon at the same venue at 1.30pm. A statement on the Munster GAA Twitter read;
“Due to the inclement weather conditions, tonight’s oneills.com Munster U20 Hurling Championship game between Waterford & Limerick is off. The match has been rescheduled to take place on Saturday March 25th at 1:30pm in Fraher Field Dungarvan.”
On the same evening as the refixed game, the Limerick Seniors will be in National Hurling League semi-final action when they take on Tipperary in the TUS Gaelic Grounds. Shane O’Brien and Adam English are members of both squads with the duo named from the start for the original Tuesday night fixture.
Limerick will have a sharp turnaround to their second round game when they host Clare at the Ennis Rd venue next Wednesday evening.
