That means Limerick will host Tipperary and Waterford next year and travel to Pairc Ui Chaoimh and Ennis.

In the Munster football championship, Limerick will face one of Kerry, Clare or Waterford in the quarter-finals with Tipp and Cork receiving a bye into the semi-finals having contested last year’s final.

Like 2020, this year’s football championship will operate on a knockout basis.
