In the Intermediate championship, the Limerick representative will face Clare or Kerry opponents on November 19/20.

The Junior championship begins on October 5/6 with the Limerick kingpins to be in action a fortnight later. They will have a Clare or Kerry opponent for company where a Banner winner would ensure Limerick have home advantage. 2021 Junior Champions Caherline were beaten by eventual champions Ballygiblin.

The Football championships kick off the week after the hurling. In the Senior Championship, the Limerick representative have also received a bye into the last four. There they will meet the winners of the Cork and Tipperary champions. Should the Limerick team meet Cork opposition, then the game will be held in Limerick on the weekend of November 26/27.

Last year, Newcastle West were defeated by Austin Stacks in the semi-final. This year’s final will be played on the weekend of December 10/11.

The Limerick champions will be in quarter-final action in the Intermediate Championship where they will be paired with the Waterford representatives on November 12/13. The Limerick side will have home advantage for the clash. Kildimo Pallaskenry were beaten by Corofin in last year’s quarter-final.

In the Junior Championship, the Limerick will also have home advantage against the Waterford kingpins in the quarter-finals. That game will take place on November 12/13 also. Last year Mountcollins fell to defeat against Ballina at the same stage.
