It has been confirmed that eir Sport are set to broadcast live coverage of the Limerick Senior Hurling Championship this year, for the quarter-finals and semi-finals.
The format in the Treaty County is two groups of six, with the two sides who finish top getting a bye into the semi-finals, while the second placed team in one group faces the third in the other, making up two quarter-finals.
It has been announced that eir will broadcast both quarter-finals and semi-finals.
The match-ups will not be confirmed until Sunday evening, after the next round of games.
As quoted by the Limerick Leader, County Board secretary Mike O’Riordan welcomed the news.
“We are delighted to have it and there is an option of the county hurling final being broadcast as well but we will look at that in due course.
“It is fruitful for the County Board and will also be fruitful for the clubs involved in that their sponsors will get recognition at national broadcasting level and our sponsors, Credit Union will get advertising on the channel, and we will have a Man of the Match presented after each game.”
This comes after eir Sport confirmed last year that they had secured rights to broadcast club games.
