National Hurling League Div 1B…throw in at 2.30pm ….. Limerick v Carlow

The Shannonsiders under the auspices of the Limerick County Board extend a hearty “Cead Mile Falte ” to their visitors from Carlow in wishing them a pleasant trip to the Treaty City. Pairc na Gael is amongst the largest of the GAA stadium in Ireland and is the home and headquarters of the Limerick GAA with a capacity of 50,000.

Life in London on a social setting has brought together the County Associations of both Co Limerick http://www.limerickexiles.co.uk/ and also that of  Co Carlow http://www.carlowassociationlondon.co.uk/ at various functions and both organisations are really looking forward to this fixture. Both associations have been involved in various charity fun raisers in the past and are counting down the hours to relish the excitement of this one.
