Weather forces Limerick GAA fixture rethink

Monaleen face into two rescheduled Limerick SFC games

TWO weather enforced postponements mean that Monaleen play twice in 72-hours in the Limerick SFC this week and then wait 14-weeks for their next game.

The 2016 champions had their round one game with Na Piarsaigh called off at half time and then last weekend, their round two game with St Senans was called off four hours before throw-in.

This Thursday, Monaleen v Na Piarsaigh takes place in Claughaun, while on Sunday Monaleen v St Senans is set for Clarina – both with 6.30 starts.

Also on Sunday, St Patricks face St Kierans in another rearranged game.

Round three is in the Master Fixture list for July 19-22.

Ahead of the completion of the opening two rounds, champions Adare and last year’s finalists Newcastle West remain unbeaten.

After this weekend, attention switches to two rounds of Limerick club hurling championship action.

There are also four Limerick U-21 hurling finals to be decided.

There are two finals this Saturday (6.00), Croagh hosts the U-21 A final between Claughaun-Old Christians and Newcastle West and Caherconlish hosts the U-21 B final between neighbours Hospital-Herbertstown and Kilteely-Dromkeen.

On Sunday (12noon), in Hospital, the Limerick 13-a-side U-21 Hurling Final pits Knockainey with Glenroe.
