Limerick will need a third championship win of the season if they are to make it to the All-Ireland quarter-final after they were beaten by Kerry 1-28 to 0-8 in the Munster football final over the weekend.

The Treaty men have reached the quarter-finals of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship on just one occasion, 2011, where they were defeated by the Kingdom.

Limerick will face one of the above sides on the following weekend, June 11/12th. The All-Ireland quarter-finals will take place a fortnight later on the weekend of June 25/26th.
