Two losses from their opening group games means they cannot advance, although there is the caveat that they cannot be relegated for the 2021 campaign.

In their opener in Bruff against the Intermediate champions Westmeath, Limerick failed to keep up with the Leinster side’s early intensity and trailed from start to finish.

Prior to the clash against Waterford, manager Paul Sexton had to step down due to personal reasons, leaving the team in interim care.

They would lose out in that game 2-15 to 0-9 in Walsh Park.

Nonetheless, they will travel to Kilkenny to take on last years All-Ireland finalists.
