Civic Reception for Limerick’s All-Ireland Hurling Champions postponed

Limerick hurling supporters can emulate team captain Declan Hannon by lifting the Liam MacCarthy Cup.

LIMERICK City and County Council regrets to announce that the Civic Reception planned to celebrate the achievements of Limerick’s All-Ireland Hurling Champions of 2021 has been postponed.

The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Daniel Butler and Council officials regret that this decision has had to be taken, but the evolving COVID-19 situation and advice from health professionals mean it’s prudent not to hold such a gathering at this time.

We are all extremely proud of the achievements of our hurlers, and, even more so, of their achievements during the pandemic.

The Civic Reception, which is one of the highest awards Limerick City and County Council can bestow on a person, was due to take place in the University Concert Hall on Friday 26 November and subject to the prevailing COVID-19 guidelines.

However in light of the emerging COVID-19 situation, the reception has been postponed until further notice.
