Mark your diary: Times, dates & venues confirmed for all 11 Limerick hurling games in 2020

GAA officials have this Tuesday published the Master Fixture Schedule for the 2020.

The fixtures were approved at a Central Council meeting on Saturday and show that John Kiely's Limerick senior hurlers will play at least 11 competitive fixtures in the 2020 season.

The new season of course commences before Christmas!

The hurlers will face six different opponents – Tipperary (3), Clare (2), Cork (2), Waterford (2), Galway and Westmeath.

Limerick will play all six counties in the LIT Gaelic Grounds, with two trips to Clare and Cork and one away game in Thurles.

Tipperary are the only side that Limerick are set to meet in the Munster League, Allianz League and Munster SHC.

Of course progress in any of the three competitions will mean more games but at a minimum it’s 11 competitive fixtures for the men in green with no clashes against Kilkenny, Wexford or Dublin, among others at this point.
