THE Limerick hurlers will play three games in eight days following the postponement of their Munster Senior League game against Waterford on Sunday because of a waterlogged pitch.

Limerick will play Cork next Sunday in Mallow in the pre-season competition and will then travel to WIT for their re-fixed game against Waterford on Tuesday, January 19. Their final group game will be five days later when they host Clare.

Limerick manager TJ Ryan had made eight changes for Sunday’s game from the side that had easily beaten Kerry in the opening round last weekend. Barry O’Connell was set for his senior debut at centre-back while there was also to be a first appearance of the season for Barry Hennessy, Tom Condon, James Ryan and Cian Lynch.

The Limerick footballers are back in action next Sunday when they host Waterford in the McGrath Cup. That game is fixed for Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale and will have a 2pm throw-in.

Elsewhere, Castletroy College and Ardscoil Ris are in Harty Cup quarter-final action this week.

Ardscoil Ris play Rochestown in a repeat of last year’s semi final, which the Cork side won. Castletroy, who lost to Thurles last year, play Templemore. Victory would see Ardscoil Ris play CBC or St Colmans, while Castletroy are bidding to play Nenagh or De La Salle in the January 30 semi finals.
