TIPPERARY AND WATERFORD will head to the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick for this year’s Munster senior hurling final on 10 July.

The announcement was made tonight that the Limerick venue will host the decider between the Premier and the Deise with throw-in at 4pm.

Semple Stadium was the venue for last year’s decider between the counties but it is understood that Waterford were not keen to concede home advantage for a second successive year.

Neither Walsh Park or Fraher Field in Waterford are equipped to host a Munster senior final which prevents the two counties entering into a home and away arrangement.

The game will be the first Munster senior hurling final at the Gaelic Grounds since 2013 when Limerick defeated Cork.

Reigning champions Tipperary advanced to the decider after yesterday’s 3-12 to 1-16 semi-final success over Limerick.

Waterford had got the better of Clare by 1-21 to 0-17 in the other semi-final earlier this month in Thurles.
