Limerick confirm two players were sent home early from New York

Video footage shows fight between two men on New York street

Two Limerick hurlers, one of whom is believed to be a current panel member, have been sent home from the New York Hurling Classic following a street fight.

 

The Limerick county board has confirmed that two players were sent home early following an incident in New York last week.

Limerick were in New York to take part in the New York Hurling Classic against Kilkenny. Video footage circulated widely on social media in recent days shows a fight between two men, one believed to be a current panel member.

A statement from the Limerick board on Tuesday afternoon did not confirm who was involved but says that two panellists had returned home early.

“Limerick GAA can confirm it sent home two panelists early from last weekend’s New York Hurling Classic following an incident,” the county boad said.

“Limerick GAA expects the highest standards of behavior and example from its players, both on and off the field, and will not tolerate any breach of those standards.

“A disciplinary process has commenced and there will be no further comment in relation to this matter.”
