Limerick Hurlers continue Championship prep with Cork test

Limerick will face Cork this Sunday in a challenge game as the Munster Championship draws closer. The game will take place Sunday evening at 7pm in Rathbane at the Old Christians GAA Ground.

This will be the first time Rathbane hosts an inter-county game and it will be played in memory of former club president Mary Hegarty. The mother of Ger and grandmother to current vice-captain Gearoid, passed away late last year.

Old Christians Chairman Dick Butler is excited at the opportunity to host the Limerick hurlers and has urged the people of Limerick city to attend the game,

“We are delighted to welcome the senior hurling teams of Limerick and Cork to Rathbane, it is the first senior inter-county game to be played at the venue and we would like to thank the Limerick County Board for giving this unique opportunity for the club and local community to witness a game of such gravitas.”

Limerick play Clare in little over 5 weeks on June 4 in the Quarter Final of the Munster Championship. This game will be crucial as not only does the winner advance to a Munster semi final but will also be guaranteed of an All-Ireland Quarter Final berth.

For the game on Sunday, Adult tickets are €10, students and OAP’s tickets are €5. U-16’s are free.

Parking is available in the car parks of Heatmerchants and the Limerick Enterprise Development Partnership (LEDP) at the old Krups site adjacent to the Maldron Hotel.
