Limerick City and County Council has announced that a public homecoming for AIB All Ireland club hurling champions Na Piarsaigh will take place at 6pm this Monday night, 21st March on the steps of City Hall, Merchant’s Quay, Limerick.

Na Piarsaigh say they are delighted to accept the invitation to thank the people of Limerick for their support as they celebrate bringing the Tommy Moore cup back to the Treaty city for the very first time.

The Na Piarsaigh flag is proudly flying at City Hall in Limerick as Cllr Liam Galvin, Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, congratulated the team on their stunning victory in Croke Park on St Patrick’s Day.

“We’re inviting the people of Limerick to come out on Monday night and show the team just how proud we are of their achievements,” Mayor Galvin said. “Na Piarsaigh gave a thrilling performance in Croke Park which has gladdened the hearts of all Limerick hurling supporters coming just six months after our All Ireland under 21 success. I want to pay tribute to Manager Shane O’Neill and all the backroom team who have worked tremendously hard with this talented Na Piarsaigh squad preparing for the final and we look forward to celebrating this famous victory with the team and their supporters on Monday night.”

The event will be MC’d by Liam Aherne from Limerick’s Live 95FM.

Limerick City and County Council has also  announced that a civic reception will take place to honour Na Piarsaigh at a date to be decided.
