DIARMUID Mullins’ Limerick U20 team will play Cork in the 2021 Munster GAA Hurling Under 20 Championship this Wednesday at 19:30.
The game will take place in Páirc Uí Chaoimh and there will be coverage from TG4.
Cork are the reigning champions in this grade following their victory over Dublin a few weeks ago in 2020’s delayed final. That victory ended their 16-year famine of an All-Ireland Hurling title.
On their way to lifting the trophy, they defeated Limerick after extra time in the Munster semi-final.
Limerick are in flying form following the defeat of Clare last week.
The Treaty side won on a scoreline of 1-27 to 0-17.
Adam English was in exceptional form, clocking up 1-6 from wing forward.
He could be the key to unlocking Cork’s defence on Wednesday evening.
As for Cork, they defeated Tipperary in the semi-final on a scoreline of 3-20 to 2-17.
The bookmakers have Cork as slight favourites but Wednesday’s game is expected to be a close affair with very little between the sides.
Mullins said that the Limerick team are ‘under no illusions’ that there’ll be a big challenge from Cork.
