Newcastle West, Na Piarsaigh and Castlemahon’s Munster semi-finals to be streamed live

Three Limerick sides have made it to the last four of the Senior, Intermediate and Junior provincial semi-finals.

Newcastle West, Na Piarsaigh and Castlemahon will be fighting for places in their respective Munster Club Championship Finals with their semi-final clashes to be streamed live by Munster GAA this weekend.

Limerick Senior champions Newcastle West make the journey to Semple Stadium to face Clonmel Commercials with Na Piarsaigh also facing Tipperary opposition in the form of Ballina while Castlemahon take on Fossa in Quaid Park Coolyroe.

Castlemahon’s Junior semi-final takes place on Saturday at 1pm while the remaining two fixtures will be played 24 hours later at 1pm on Sunday.


Sunday’s Senior semi-final will be Newcastle West’s first outing since their Limerick SFC final victory over Adare which will be three weeks to the date on the day. They face a Clonmel Commercials outfit that are branded as the favourites to win the tournament outright following their impressive victory over Nemo Rangers in the quarters.

The Magpies have history with their semi-final opponents following their 2015 quarter-final clash. Clonmel overcame a four-point deficit with five minutes left to run out 0-12 to 1-7 winners after stoppage time, where they would go on to win the tournament.

The winner of the tie will face either Kerins O’Rahillys or Eire Og Ennis in the Munster Final on the 10th of December.

Limerick Intermediate Champions Na Piarsaigh will make the short journey to Kilmallock as they host Tipperary kingpins Ballina. The Caherdavin side were 2-10 to 1-5 winners over Roanmore in the same venue in the Munster quarter final just a fortnight ago to book their place in Sunday’s last four tie

The reward for the winner is a place in the final against either Kanturk or Rathmore with that game being decided 24 hours before Na Piarsaigh get their semi-final underway.

In the Junior Championship, Castlemahon will provide host to Kerry champions Fossa with their game taking place on Saturday. The Limerick outfit booked their place in the semi-final after a quarter-final victory over Shamrocks of Waterford and face a Fossa side that haven’t played since their Kerry Premier Junior triumph. The duo of David and Paudie Clifford will be obvious star attractions with the pair key to Kerry’s All-Ireland victory earlier this year.

A place in the final against the winners of Kilmurry and Thurles Sarsfields is at stake for the winner.
