LIMERICK GAA fixture planners have confirmed the fixtures for the opening round of the county club hurling championships.

In total there are 24 games across the top four tiers of the club championship with the majority of John Kiely's Liam MacCarthy Cup winners in action.

A number of teams do have byes in round round due to the Covid-19 enforced condensed nature of the varying grades similar to last season.

The round one games run from Thursday September 2 to Sunday September 5. And, round two will be the following weekend.

There are four games in the flagship senior championship - all in the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

Blackrock and South Liberties open the championship on Thursday September 2 in what could see former Cork goalkeeper Anthony Nash make his Limerick SHC debut for Liberties alongside his cousin Barry Nash.

On Friday September 3, Declan Hannon's Adare play Monaleen.

Both these games are in Section B.

Section A commences on Saturday September 4, when champions Na Piarsaigh play Kilmallock. Between them these sides had 11 players on the All-Ireland winning panel but Na Piarsaigh have injury doubts over Casey brothers Mike and Peter, while Kilmallock's Graeme Mulcahy also picked up a knock in the Croke Park victory last week.

Patrickswell face Doon on Sunday September 5 and again a host of inter-county stars in action with each club having four players on the 35-strong All-Ireland winning panel.
