The Limerick senior football championship gets underway this weekend
WHILE the countdown to All-Ireland Hurling Final Day on Sunday week dominates the GAA scene, the Limerick club football championship commences this weekend.
There are 15 games scheduled for the opening round of the county senior, intermediate and junior football championships.
There are four senior games and champions Adare are among those in first round action - they play 2019 finalists Oola.
Adare, minus hurling tied Ronan Connolly, are chasing a fourth title in five years and face an Oola side who wont be utilising their four inter-county hurlers.
Claughaun return the senior football ranks for the first time since 2010 when the 14-time senior champions play last year's beaten SFC finalists Ballylanders.
Like Bally', Newcastle West have appeared in two finals across the last four years. Winners in 2019, Newcastle West will look to return to winning ways after their County League final defeat to Monaleen when they play last year’s semi finalists Galbally.
That game goes ahead tonight, Saturday, in Kilmallock at 7pm.
Ballysteen were also semi finalists last year and face a St Kierans side that didn’t reach the 2020 knockout stages.
