Limerick Senior, Intermediate and Junior Hurling Championships ready for kick off this weekend | First Round Fixtures

Na Piarsaigh are the team to beat in the SHC as they take on second favourites Patrickswell in a mouthwatering opener on Friday night.

Limerick’s hurling superstars return to club action this weekend with the start of the Senior, Intermediate and Junior championship across the county.

All but the premier intermediate kick off with the second tier competition beginning last weekend. A number of John Kiely’s All-Ireland winners were involved with the rest in action this weekend.


In the senior championship, Na Piarsaigh are the team to beat as they bid for an eighth title since 2011, their first. They take on second favourites Patrickswell in a mouthwatering opener on Friday night. The meeting of Doon and Kilmallock highlights the Saturday slot.

Four of the senior games take place on Friday night with a pair on Saturday.
