Limerick City and County Council in conjunction with Limerick GAA will be providing a big screen so that Limerick hurling fans will be able to watch the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final on Sunday 19th August 2018.
- Mayor calls on communities and businesses to go green in support of the team
The big screen will be located in the Gaelic Grounds, with gates open from 12 noon on Sunday 19 August 2018.
Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr James Collins said: “This is fantastic news for Limerick hurling supporters, who won’t be able to make it to Croke Park for the final. What better place to watch the final than in the home of Limerick GAA, the Gaelic Grounds!”
“Sunday the 19th of August will be a very special occasion, one that doesn’t come around too often, and I thank Limerick City and County Council and Limerick GAA for providing the big screen for the match.”
“The anticipation of the final is building and we want to hold a free family-friendly event in the Gaelic Grounds on match day. The GAA is all about community and county and what better way to celebrate your locality and the Limerick team than in the Gaelic Grounds watching the match with friends and family. I’ve no doubt the atmosphere in the stadium will be amazing.”
“I’m also calling on businesses and communities across the city and county to get behind the team and proudly display the green and white and show their support for the team.”
