LIMERICK will host Tipperary in an important Munster Under-20 Hurling Championship at Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale, on Friday (7pm).

This fixture was listed for the Gaelic Grounds, but was moved earlier in the week.

It’s still anticipated that Limerick’s lead venue – which has been out of commission for some time due to remedial works – will host the Munster Senior Hurling Championship against Tipperary on April 28.

In the opening round, the Shannonsiders were edged-out by Clare (2-17 to 2-15) at O’Garney Park, Sixmilebridge.

Meanwhile, Limerick opened their Munster Minor Hurling Championship with a difficult assignment against Cork at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Thursday.
