Limerick to participate in 2019 New York Hurling Classic

After three successful years, the Fenway Hurling Classic will be moved to New York for this year.

Defending champions Limerick are one of four teams that will compete in the one day, three-game tournament on Saturday, November 16.

Last year Limerick defeated Wexford in the semi-finals before beating Cork in the decider.

Limerick will be joined by the current All-Ireland champions with Tipperary and Kilkenny both scheduled to take part as well as Leinster champions, Wexford.

After the disappointment of their All-Ireland semi-final loss to Kilkenny, there will be a chance for John Kiely’s side to right the wrongs of the Croke Park defeat.

The games will take place on the Citi Field in Queens, New York this November.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Monday August 28, at 10AM local time at www.mets.com/hurling.
