Limerick City and County Council and Limerick GAA announced the news this morning following lengthy talks on the homecoming and screening.

Gates will open for the free-ticketed event at 12 noon on Sunday, 19 August as the two counties go head-to-head for the Liam McCarthy Cup in Croke Park.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr James Collins said:

“This is fantastic news for Limerick hurling supporters, who won’t be able to make it to Croke Park for the final. What better place to watch the final than in the home of Limerick GAA, the Gaelic Grounds.

“Sunday the 19th of August will be a very special occasion, one that doesn’t come around too often, and I thank Limerick City and County Council and Limerick GAA for providing the big screen for the match.”

Tickets can be booked on, or bought in Centra or Supervalu stores from next Monday morning.

Likewise in Galway, the big screen is set to return to Eyre Square for the big day.
