All-Ireland hurling champions Limerick will get their 2019 Munster Hurling League campaign underway on Friday December 14th against 2016 champions Tipperary at 7.30pm in the Gaelic Grounds.

The competition will see the six teams in Munster split into two groups with Kerry joining Limerick and Tipp while Clare, Cork and Waterford make up the second group.

That group won’t get underway until after Christmas when Clare meet Cork at Cusack Park on Saturday December 29th at 2pm.

Friday week’s meeting will be Limerick’s first game in Ireland since their historic victory over Galway in Croke Park in August to end a 45-year All-Ireland drought.

Munster Council chairman Jerry O’Sullivan said: “I am delighted that all six counties will participate in the 2019 Co-Op Superstores Munster Hurling League. The Munster Council is pleased to facilitate this competition for our counties as it provides participating teams with a great opportunity to prepare for the very competitive Allianz League. I am delighted to welcome Co-Op Superstores as the competition sponsor once again. I thank them for their continued support and look forward to working with them in the months ahead.”
