Limerick GAA have released a statement confirming that two players have been sent home from their trip to New York.
The 2018 All-Ireland champions were taking part in the now annual Super 11s at Citifield, the home of Major League Baseball outfit, the New York Mets.
Limerick qualified for the final of the tournament after defeating Wexford in the semi-final before falling to Kilkenny in the final.
Following the event, video footage circulated of a member of the Limerick panel fighting with a person on the streets of New York.
The video footage circulated far and wide and now the county board have released a statement confirming that those involved have been sent home.
“Limerick GAA can confirm it sent home two panellists early from last weekend’s New York Hurling Classic following an incident.
“Limerick GAA expects the highest standards of behaviour and example from its players, both on and off the field, and will not tolerate any breach of those standards.
“A disciplinary process has commenced and there will be no further comment in relation to this matter.”
