Hurling fans fears confirmed as Limerick to get Sky Sports treatment once more

Limerick to get Sky Sports treatment once more.

Limerick travel to Nowlan Park this Saturday knowing their eason is on the line. Whilst it wasn’t the draw that many hoped for, the sight of the cats should be enough to encourage John Kiely’s men to give it their all.

However, for the second consecutive Senior Hurling Championship game involving Limerick will not be broadcast on free view television, denying thousands the chance to watch Limerick.

Limerick’s Munster Championship outing against Clare was exclusively broadcast by Sky Sports as will this Saturday’s qualifier clash, something which has provoked many.

Throw in at Nowlan Park is at 7.00 pm Saturday evening with the losers out of the senior championship of 2017.
