LIMERICK will play Laois in the All Ireland SHC qualifiers after being paired against the Leinster county in the draw made in Croke Park last Sunday.

That game will take place in the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday, June 23, and should they win they will advance to play Antrim a week later, also in the Gaelic Grounds. If Limerick win that game then they will have a two-week break before they play one of the Phase 2 Qualifier winners - the phase where the beaten provincial semi-finalists play each other.

A win in that game would set Limerick up for an All Ireland quarter-final meeting with one of the beaten provincial finalists.
