SEVERAL members of John Kiely’s Limerick Senior Hurling Squad will enter the ring at the South Court Hotel on Saturday night in a joint fundraising Fight Night with St. Francis Boxing Club. The players have been preparing for the event under boxing coach Ken Moore. Limerick returned to the gym last month and this week had their first pitch session.

“2018 promises to be a very exciting campaign with the new championship format including four guaranteed matches in Munster, two at home to Tipperary & Waterford & two away to Cork & Clare.
