Limerick gear up for Antrim Allianz League clash

Antrim competed in Division Three last year, as they finished sixth, having picked up two wins in their seven outings to avoid relegation.

Limerick’s 2024 Allianz League campaign kicks off this Sunday, as Jimmy Lee’s men take on Antrim in Mick Neville Park, with throw-in at 12:30pm.

The Treaty County competed in Divison Two of the league last year, but were relegated having finished bottom with a record of one draw and six losses.

It means that this year the Shannonsiders are set to compete in Division Three, where they will be joined by the weekend’s opponents Antrim, as well as Clare, Down, Offaly, Sligo, Westmeath and Wicklow.

The most notable absentee from the panel is Hugh Bourke, the Adare man not present in the 35 named, his absence delivering a massive blow to Lee and Limerick football.

The squad was bolstered however, by the return of Ballysteen sharpshooter Danny Neville, as well as Gale Gaels man Tommie Childs, both players having left the panel in 2021.

Throw-in is at 12:30pm in Rathkeale this Sunday, as Lee and Limerick look to get their 2024 Allianz League campaign off to the perfect start.
