Limerick to begin All-Ireland SHC defence against Cork with fixture lists drawn up for 2022

All Ireland SHC 2022

Some brilliant ties are in store in the 2022 All-Ireland SHC.

Reigning All-Ireland SHC holders Limerick will begin their defence of Liam McCarthy in the Munster SHC against Cork next Spring, as the GAA confirmed the fixture lists for the provincial battles this afternoon.

Limerick won the All-Ireland title in August with an incredible display against Cork, demolishing the Leesiders at Croke Park.

But they will have to meet them in the Munster Championship yet again in their opening round clash, as their provincial foes eye a revenge mission against them.

Elsewhere, Henry Shefflin will take his Galway side to Wexford as he looks to prime his side for a shot at All-Ireland glory this year.

2022 All-Ireland SHC Provincial fixtures made.

Shefflin will take on his old mentor in Brian Cody at Kilkenny on the May bank holiday weekend, with a clash against Westmeath preceding that.

Munster contenders Tipperary begin their campaign with a clash against Waterford, whereas Clare have received a bye for the first-round of the Munster round-robin Championship.

The Banner will take on Tipp in their Championship opener on the second weekend of the series of games. Dates for the Munster SHC have yet to be confirmed.
