CUSACK PARK WILL host next week’s Bord Gáis Energy Munster U21 hurling final and it’s going to be an all-ticket affair.

Clare have delayed their planned stadium redevelopment of Cusack Park in Ennis by a couple of weeks and will now enjoy home advantage for the clash with Limerick.

Clare triumphed by 0-23 to 1-18 against Waterford in Cusack Park last Wednesday night and will face Limerick – victors by 3-16 to 3-14 against Tipperary last night at the Gaelic Grounds – in the final on Thursday 30 July.

The Banner are entitled to home advantage against Limerick as last year’s U21 quarter-final tie between the counties took place in the Gaelic Grounds.

It had been planned that the redevelopment of the Ennis venue would commence next week but it may now be delayed until August because of the U21 decider.

The Munster Council have confirmed that the game will be all-ticket and supporters are asked to pre-purchase their tickets in advance  of the game.

Adult and juvenile tickets will go on sale through clubs, online through and the usual participating Supervalu and Centra stores.

Adult terrace and sideline tickets are €15, while juvenile (under 16′s) tickets are €5. There will be a limited number of covered stand tickets available at €20.

A student/OAP discount of €5 can be redeemed at the venue, available on adult tickets only. Tickets will go on sale at 10am this morning, Wednesday 22 July.
