The Munster Council has released details of this year’s provincial hurling championship round robin. All-Ireland champions Limerick will open their provincial campaign in week two with a home match against Munster champions Cork on 19th May.

The first round of fixtures will take place on Sunday May 12th and Waterford will be able to avail of home advantage - after last week’s approval of Walsh Park as a venue - in the opening round, against Clare.

On the same day Munster champions Cork face Tipperary in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

The 2019 senior and minor series will be run over a six-week period rather than five weeks as was the case in 2018.

This will address the issue of counties playing on four consecutive weekends.
