THERE is a repeat of the 2015 Limerick SHC final this Sunday – in the delayed final of the 2015 All County Senior Hurling League.
The game between Na Piarsaigh and Patrickswell takes place in Claughaun at 6.30.
And, the game could yet double-up as the final of the 2016 ACHL as the duo have finished in the top two places of the league.
At a minimum the 2015 league title up for grabs in a game that provides an ideal warm-up for the following weekend’s round three of the county championship.
Both teams will be without some regulars.
Championship holders Na Piarsaigh will be without Mike Casey (US) and Kevin Downes (injured). Shane O’Neill’s Caherdavin side could also be without Breen brothers Kieran and David, who have missed their recent games.
Youngsters like Thomas Grimes, Conor Houlihan and Mike Andrews have been afforded opportunities with the Na Piarsaigh seniors in recent games.
Gary Kirby’s Patrickswell will also be down key men with Diarmaid Byrnes, Cian Lynch and Kevin O’Brien all granted American sanctions in mid-July and therefore unavailable.
Elsewhere, the delayed Limerick Premier U-21 hurling final has moved to yet another new date – Doon and Na Piarsaigh now set to meet on Saturday September 17 in Bruff at 3.00pm.
