THE cream of Limerick’s underage hurling talent will be on display this Saturday with the annual inter-county competitions taking centre stage.
Limerick will have six teams in action, headed up by coach Anthony Daly, along with James Connery, Brian Finn, David Holmes and the varying management teams.
The U-17s aren’t taking part in their competition due to a shortage of players, as many are involved with their adult club sides in county championship action. This problem won’t occur next season as the age limit for adult hurling rises to those on the age of minor.
