THE MUNSTER COUNCIL have confirmed the fixture details for the province’s 2021 senior club hurling finals, all three of which will be held on Sunday 9 January.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh will host the senior final as Waterford’s Ballygunner take on Limerick’s Kilmallock.

Both clubs are recent winners of this championship – Ballygunner in 2018 and Kilmallock in 2014 – with Waterford club contesting their fifth final in the last six campaigns.

The Gaelic Grounds in Limerick is the venue for the intermediate final involving Kerry champions Kilmoyley taking on Cork’s Courcey Rovers.

No Kerry club has lifted this crown, Kilmoyley themsevles losing the final in 2016, while Courceys are contesting their first final at this level with Cork clubs having won the last three championships.

Finally Mallow will stage the junior decider between Cork’s Ballygiblin and Tipperary’s Skeheenarinky, a novel pairing between the neighbouring clubs on the border between the counties.
