The Limerick hurlers will play Dublin in the All Ireland quarter-final on Sunday week, July 24, after they got the better of Antrim in Parnell Park on Saturday night.

The GAA will announce details of the fixture today but it is expected to be part of a double header in Thurles with the other quarter-final between Galway and Waterford.

Limerick beat 14-man Antrim by 3-22 to 0-12 on Saturday night but were far from impressive for long stages and only really put the game beyond doubt when David Breen goaled 20 minutes into the second half.

Limerick have a number of injury concerns ahead of that game with Donal O’Grady and Kevin Downes going off injured at half time against Antrim and Paul Browne, Graeme Mulcahy and Damian Reale already on the treatment table.

Should Limerick beat Dublin then they will play Kilkenny or Tipperary in the All Ireland semi-final on Sunday, August 7 or 14.
