LIMERICK GAA have announced their fixtures for the next month, including details of some of the main county finals in hurling and football.

The Limerick senior hurling final, sponsored by the Hyundai Limerick Motor Centre, will have a 3.30pm throw-in on Sunday, October 6. Unlike last year when the minor final was the curtain-raiser, this time the County Cup final between Granagh-Ballingarry and Patrickswell will open proceedings at 1.45pm.

Na Piarsaigh’s presence in the minor final when they will take on champions Doon has been pencilled in for the following Saturday, September 12, in Kilmallock as a curtain-raiser to the intermediate final.

The intermediate hurling semi-finals are both on this Sunday when Bruff take on Knockaderry in Feenagh at 2pm and then Blackrock play Dromin-Athlacca in Bruff at 4.15pm.

It’s also a busy weekend in the Limerick club football championships this weekend as the semi-finals take place in both the senior and intermediate. There is a double header in Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale on Friday when St Mary’s-Finns play Mungret at 7pm and then senior champions Dromcollogher-Broadford play St Kieran’s at 8.30pm.

Because of the All Ireland hurling final replay between Clare and Cork, there are no fixtures on Saturday but on Sunday Monaleen and St Patrick’s meet at 4pm in Claughaun in the senior semi-final while at 3pm in Clarina, St Senan’s play Oola.

The Limerick intermediate football final is currently pencilled in for Sunday, October 13, with the senior final a week later on Sunday, October 20.
