Little rest for All Ireland hurling heroes with Limerick club games this weekend

Gearoid Hegarty's St Patricks in Limerick SFC action on Saturday

THERE is little rest for some of Limerick’s All Ireland heroes with club GAA action resuming next weekend.

There were to be championship games this Wednesday but they have been pushed back 72-hours to Saturday at 7pm.

There are three games in Limerick SFC, which were postponed from earlier in the summer when the senior hurlers were preparing for their All Ireland quest.

Gearoid Hegarty, Mike and Peter Casey, William O’Donoghue, Seamus Flanagan, Tom Condon, Darragh O’Donovan and Richie English are among those who have clubs in football championship action.

Other members of John Kiely’s winning panel could be involved with their clubs in divisional action.

In the Limerick SFC, St Senans play Na Piarsaigh in Clarina, Oola face St Kierans in Kilmallock and Fr Caseys play St Patricks in the Bog Garden, Rathkeale.

In the Limerick IFC, Galtee Gaels face Castlemahon in Kilmallock at 5.15pm, while in the Limerick IHC on Sunday (2pm) Knockaderry play Hospital-Herbertstown in Bruff.

Also on Sunday, the Limerick ladies footballers continue their All Ireland bid when they play London in TG4 All-Ireland Junior Championship semi-final in Mallow at 12.30pm.
