THE semi-finals of Limerick’s premier U-21 hurling championship take place this Sunday evening at 6.30.

Na Piarsaigh remain on course for a hat-trick of Limerick Premier U-21 hurling championship titles.

But the champions face a mouth-watering semi-final against back-to-back Premier minor champions, Doon.

Last week Na Piarsaigh beat Ahane in the quarter final to complete the last four.

The other semi-final will see Patrickswell play Deel Rangers in Rathkeale’s Mick Neville Park.

The clash of Na Piarsaigh and Doon takes place in Bruff.

Both games have 6.30 starts this Sunday.

The final is fixed for Sunday April 27.

Na Piarsaigh are powered by inter-county senior Shane Dowling.

They also Mark Buckley, David Dempsey, Michael Foley and William O’Donoghue as key players.

Doon have central players in Richie English, Darragh O’Donovan, Dean Coleman and Darragh Stapleton.

Patrickswell have inter-county senior Mark Carmody in their plans. Also important to their quest is Kevin O’Brien, Diarmuid Byrnes and James Carrig.

Their opponents Deel Rangers are a western amalgamation of Feohanagh-Castlemahon, Knockaderry and Monagea. Barry Lynch, Mike Fitzgibbon, Liam O’Sullivan and Sean Flanagan all key.
