Time, date and venue confirmed for Limerick’s All-Ireland U20 final

Semple Stadium will host the U20 All-Ireland final between Limerick and Kilkenny on May 22 it has been confirmed.

The game throws in at 1.30pm and will be live on TG4.

The decider will act as somewhat of a curtain raiser, with the Munster senior championship clash between Tipperary and Cork throwing in at 4pm.

However, if Cork fail to beat Waterford this weekend, that game will be a dead rubber.
