Limerick have found somewhere to play for the start of the season
Jackman Park will be the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division club’s temporary home until Markets Field is ready.

JACKMAN PARK WILL host Limerick’s home matches for the beginning of the 2015 season.

The SSE Airtricity League Premier Division side were scheduled to make a return to the redeveloped Markets Field when the new campaign kicks off in a fortnight, having played at Thomond Park for the past two years, but announced last week that it will not be available for the opening month at least.

Instead, Martin Russell’s men have been permitted to play at the Limerick District League-owned Jackman Park — the ground used prior to 2012.

“Limerick FC are delighted to announce that we have tonight secured Jackman Park as a home venue for our forthcoming games,” a statement released tonight reads.

“The Limerick District Management Committee (LDMC) have given their full backing to keeping senior soccer in the city. The club are most grateful to the LDMC for their support, along with the Football Association of Ireland.

The club also take this opportunity to thank all of the sporting organisations inside and outside the city that made their stadiums available to us since we were informed that the Markets Field would not be ready for our opening games.

“We are now looking forward to our first league match against Bohemians, which takes place at Jackman Park on Saturday 7 March.”
