THE LIMERICK footballers will play their league football in Division 4 next season following their relegation from Division 3 last weekend.

John Brudair’s men have only point from their opening six games and will use this weekend’s game against Offaly in Newcastlewest as the beginning of their championship preparations.

Limerick will face Clare on the weekend of May 28/29 in the Munster championship quarter final, which is now just eight weeks away.

Manager John Brudair says that the disappointment of relegation is something that the team have to park now as the business end of the season begins.

“I suppose we have been looking to the Clare ties for a couple of days now. We need to focus on that and see where we can improve. We have struggled in recent years to maintain our Division 3 status, so it was always going to be tough this year.”

Brudair can lament the loss of several players this season. Limerick are currently without the services of Gearóid Hegarthy, who has chosen hurling over football this season. In somewhat of a vicious circle, players are not willing to commit their time to Limerick football, something that the hurlers in this county will never to have to contend with.

Potential Limerick team:

B Scanlon, J McCarthy, P Browne, S O’Dea, I Corbett, M Donovan, S Cahill, T Lee, D Tracey, C Sheehan, D Neville, A Enright, I Ryan, P Nash, G Noonan
