Big welcome organised for Limerick’s three-in-a-row heroes

The Limerick hurlers' homecoming in 2018.

LIMERICK’S all-conquering three-in-a-row heroes will return to a tumultuous welcome tomorrow evening at the TUS Gaelic Grounds as it hosts the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Champions’ homecoming following this afternoon’s historic victory in Croke Park.

After the Covid-constrained homecomings of the last two year’s titles, tomorrow’s victory salute will be an opportunity for the people of Limerick to unleash three years of unbridled All-Ireland joy into one magical event.

A night of unforgettable festivities is planned, rivalling the scenes that greeted the 2018 champions when they returned after claiming their first Liam McCarthy Cup in 45 years, with some of Limerick and Ireland’s finest contemporary music artists joining the celebrations.

Limerick City and County Council in association with Limerick GAA are inviting supporters to join the family-friendly party at the homecoming at the TUS Gaelic Grounds.

The homecoming is a ticket-only event with tickets available from from 6pm this evening. There is no cost for attending the event but a booking fee of €2 will apply.
