THE Limerick senior footballers have been drawn at home to London in the All-Ireland senior football qualifiers.

The game is most likely to take place on Sunday June 22 as the Limerick junior footballers are in Munster championship semi-final action away to Cork on Saturday evening June 21.

John Brudair’s Limerick are bidding to bounce back from the nine point loss to Tipperary in the Munster SFC quarter-final.

In that game Limerick gave first Munster championship starts to six players, while another was given his debut as a sub.

Limerick used experienced trio John Galvin, Pa Ranahan and John Riordan as subs.

Last season Limerick fell to Cork in Munster and then existed the All Ireland Qualifiers at the first hurdle, when they lost to Longford, which signalled the end of Maurice Horan’s term as manager.
