This year they will once again face Wexford in the semi-finals of the exhibition tournament with a clash with either Tipp or Kilkenny awaiting the winners.

At the launch of the Tournament today, Limerick’s Diarmaid Byrnes showed off the jersey for this year’s tournament with some slight alterations from last year’s design.

8 November 2019; Limerick’s Diarmuid Byrnes was at Aer Lingus Hangar 6 at Dublin Airport this morning where Aer Lingus, in partnership with the GAA & GPA, unveiled a one-of-a-kind customised playing kit for the New York Hurling Classic which takes place at Citi Field in New York on November 16th. Aer Lingus will once again be the Official Airline of the event and will be responsible for flying the four teams to New York. Aer Lingus is Ireland’s only 4-Star airline and has been involved in the Hurling Classic on three previous occasions where it has been played at Fenway Park in 2015, 2017 & 2018.

Adare Manor will sponsor the jersey like they did in Boston last year.

Limerick had no sponsor on the body of their jersey in the league or championship in 2019.

The specially commissioned O’Neill’s jerseys have several unique design features which make them stand-out from the four counties’ regular playing kit. 

These are:

  • Aer Lingus logo featuring on the jersey sleeve
  • GAA/GPA crest on front of jersey at opposite side to county crest
  • ‘New York Hurling Classic 2019’ embroidered text under county crest
