Kilmallock will host this year’s Limerick SFC final between Newcastle West and Dromcollogher-Broadford on Sunday week, October 18.

The Gaelic Grounds was the venues when the sides clashed in a controversial draw and replay in 2012 but the final hasn’t been taken out of the county grounds in the two years since. Newcastle West was the venue for the 2013 decider between Monaleen and Drom-Broadford while Ballylanders and St Patrick’s clashed there last year.

But with Newcastle West in this year’s final - and seeking a first title since 1992 - Kilmallock was the favoured choice for Limerick GAA officials. The game will throw in at 3pm and will be preceded by the minor final between Fr Casey’s and Newcastle West.

The senior football relegation final will also take place that weekend, on Saturday, October 17, between Rathkeale and Adare in Askeaton at 3pm.

Limerick GAA have released their fixture list for the remainder of the club season.
