It’s home advantage to Limerick as the city gets ready to welcome thousands of hurling fans ahead of the Munster Senior Hurling Championship Final at TUS Gaelic Grounds at 1.45pm this Sunday June 11.

The Treaty City will be awash with green and white as the Limerick senior hurlers prepare to hold off the challenge of Clare, and retain their Munster title, at the sold-out Ennis Road venue.

Match goers are advised to travel early into Limerick city to make the most of the pre-match atmosphere and avoid delays caused by heavy traffic.

Match goers are encouraged to help keep Limerick clean by availing of additional 1100-litre bins being provided along the routes to the TUS Gaelic Grounds. Limerick City and County Council staff will be hard at work on match day and will carry out an additional clean-up of the main pedestrian routes following the match.

The Council have helped to green the city in support of the All Ireland Champions with Limerick flags flying on Shannon Bridge, Thomond Bridge and at King John’s Castle.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Francis Foley said: “There is nothing to compare with the atmosphere on Munster final match day and to have this game at our home ground is a major boost for Limerick. Hopefully we will be celebrating another victory for John Kiely and his men. Let’s all pull on our green and white jersey’s and show our pride in Limerick by helping to keep our streets clean and being respectful of property owners, particularly around the TUS Gaelic Grounds. Let’s make the occasion a positive experience for everyone. Luimneach abú!”
