Na Piarsaigh and Patrickswell the standout tie | Friday Hurling Fixtures

The standout tie in the championship on the opening night is undoubtedly the repeat of the 2019 final and last year’s semi final.

The 2023 Limerick Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championships kick off this Friday with games in each of the divisions down for decision.

The eye catching clashes take place in the top tier but the others all have something to offer on this Friday night.

Senior

The standout tie in the championship on the opening night is undoubtedly the repeat of the 2019 final and last year’s semi final pitting Na Piarsaigh against Patrickswell. Seven of those that took to the field in the All-Ireland final are set to feature in a game that could define the group stages.

In group two, Monaleen make their return to the senior ranks as they take on one of the favourites for promotion, Ballybrown. Adare also return to group two where they meet Garryspillane while Mungret St Pauls face South Liberties.

Nothing will be won here on opening night but a lot can be lost.
