Limerick v Galway: TV details, throw-in time and team news for All-Ireland semi-final

Limerick v Galway: TV details.

Limerick v Galway is one of two All-Ireland hurling semi-finals on TV this weekend, as the last four look to book a place in the final.

After beating Cork in their quarter-final meeting, Galway will now come up against All-Ireland champions Limerick, it what should be another fine display of hurling.

Limerick are on the hunt for a fourth Liam MacCarthy Cup in five years, while Galway are hoping to win their first since 2017.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this weekend’s meeting between the two counties.

When does Limerick v Galway take place?

Limerick v Galway takes place this Sunday July 3rd at Croke Park in Dublin, with a throw-in time of 3.30pm.

Will Limerick v Galway be on TV?

The match will be broadcast live on RTE 2 and Sky Sports Arena. It will also be shown on GAA GO for viewers outside of the UK & Ireland at a cost of €10.

What is at stake?

Limerick and Galway will be playing for the right to face Kilkenny or Clare in this year’s All-Ireland Hurling Championship Final on July 17th.

The Treaty County are the form team of the past few years, having lifted the trophy in 2018, 2020 and 2021. They have won the Championship 10 ten occasions overall, with their 2018 success bridging a long barren spell that went back to 1973.

Galway have won the title on five occasions, with the most recent of those coming five years ago, when they defeated Waterford in the final.

The Tribesmen were back in the final a year later but lost out to this weekend’s opponents.

How did we get here?

Limerick finished second in the Munster round robin but went on to defeat Clare in the provincial final in Thurles on June 5th. Because of this, John Kiely’s side went straight through to the semi-final.

Galway finished top of the pile in the Leinster round robin but lost to Kilkenny in the final at Croke Park on June 4th.

This meant that Henry Shefflin’s men had to participate in a quarter-final, which they won against Cork by a score of 2-19 to 1-21.
