TV blackout for Limerick v Clare derby game next Sunday in Allianz Hurling League

Limerick Clare

ONCE again there will be no television coverage for the Limerick hurlers next weekend.

After the opening three rounds of the Allianz Hurling League featured the All-Ireland champions, they are now facing into a second successive game away from the TV cameras.

TG4 have three games on their schedule next Sunday March 3 but Limerick and Clare don't feature.

All three final round games in Division 1A of the Allianz Hurling League have 2pm starts and TG4 include just Cork v Tipperary on their schedule.

They are also to feature two Division One Allianz Football League games - Roscommon v Dublin and Kerry v Monaghan.

Roscommon v Dublin will be live, with deferred coverage of the Cork-Tipperary hurling tie and the Kerry-Monaghan football tie.

There are also two live games on Saturday evening, 7.15, on eir Sport - Mayo v Galway and Donegal v Armagh, both in the Allianz Football League round five.

Ahead of the trip to Cusack Park in Ennis, Limerick are the only side guaranteed a quarter final spot from Division 1A.

But Limerick can still finish anywhere in the top four with permutations aplenty.

Clare most likely need a positive result to advance, albeit there is a sequence of results that could see them lose and progress to the March 9/10 knockout stages.

Limerick can still play five of the six teams from Division 1B in the quarter finals - Galway, Waterford, Dublin, Laois or Carlow.

A top of the table finish would see Limerick play, Laois or Carlow.
