Munster Senior Hurling Championship Details Confirmed

Munster GAA Press Release

Munster Senior Hurling Championship Details Confirmed


At a meeting of the Munster CCC on Thursday March 7th, the dates, times and ticket arrangements for the 2019 Munster GAA Hurling Championship were confirmed.

Opening Weekend

The first round of fixtures will take place on Sunday May 12th. Walsh Park Waterford will be the venue for the throw-in of the 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship with Clare playing the hosts Waterford at 2pm while at 4pm, defending Munster champions Cork take on old rivals Tipperary in Pairc Ui Chaoimh. The Electric Ireland Minor Hurling Championship games between the same counties will serve as the curtain-raiser to both fixtures.

Hurling Championship Round-Robin extended by 1 week

The 2019 Munster Senior and Minor Hurling Championships Round-Robin series will be run over six-week period rather than five weeks as was the case in 2018. This will eliminate the scenario of counties playing on four consecutive weekends.  While two counties (Limerick and Clare) will play on three consecutive weekends, the schedule has been configured to ensure those counties finish their programme with these 3 games, all taking place in June.

The alternative system, which sees all counties play 2 weekends in a row, would have seen one county starting the campaign with 2 away games and one county finishing with 2 away games. It was decided to remain with the system agreed prior to the start of the new format, which ensures a home/away/home/away or away/home/away/home sequence. Counties also decided against starting on May 5th in order to give maximum time for club games in April.

Ticket Prices

Senior and Minor Hurling Round-Robin Championship Matches

Adult: Stand €20, Terrace €15
Under 16s: €5 all areas
Student/OAP: Concession of €5 with valid ID prior to entry at the designated stile.

Ticket Sales

Tickets for the Munster Senior Hurling Championship games are scheduled to go on public sale via tickets.ie and Centra / Supervalu outlets from Wednesday April 24th. Due to the restricted capacity at Walsh Park Waterford, tickets for both Munster Hurling Championship games scheduled for the Waterford city venue will not go on public sale and will be made available via the participating counties and clubs only.

Walsh Park confirmed as venue for Munster SHC 2019

Press Release – Walsh Park confirmed as venue for Munster SHC 2019

The CCC of the Munster Council has (today) confirmed that both Waterford’s home games in the 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship (on May 12th v Clare & June 2nd v Limerick), will take place at Walsh Park in Waterford.

Earlier today, officers of the Munster Council and Waterford County Board met to discuss the use of the venue, following confirmation by GAA Health and Safety Consultants that the capacity for both games will be set at 11,000.

Munster Council Chairman, Liam Lenihan said “I am pleased to confirm that Waterford will play their two home games in Walsh Park on May 12th and June 2nd. Today’s decision confirms that all of the competing counties in the 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship will have two home games. We look forward to working with Waterford County Board to ensure the smooth running of both fixtures scheduled at the Waterford City venue”.

Waterford County Board Chairman, Paddy Joe Ryan said “We are delighted to be playing our home games in Walsh Park on May 12th and June 2nd. Due to a structural issue at the ground in 2018, which significantly reduced the capacity, we didn’t play Senior Hurling Championship games at the ground. However, this issue has since been resolved and the capacity set at 11,000. These games will be a big boost for the county and local businesses and we look forward to welcoming the supporters of Clare and Limerick to Waterford City. We are embarking on a redevelopment of the ground, which will bring the capacity to 15,500, including 9,000 seats.”

List of organisations who will receive Munster GAA Development Grants


Under the scheme, Clare received €176,771 from 22 applications, Cork received €221,709 from 42 applications, Limerick received €206,907 from 35 applications, Kerry received €124,771 from 23 applications, Tipperary received €281,011 from 38 applications and Waterford received €64,755 from 15 applications. Funding is allocated based on the amount spent and on the category of development.

Council Chairman Jerry O’Sullivan said “I am delighted to announce the awarding of over €1.1 million in grants supporting development projects in 169 clubs and 6 schools throughout Munster.”
“These grants have supported an impressive range of capital development projects, with clubs investing €8,331,577 in upgrading their facilities. This level of expenditure is testament to the strength of the GAA in the province and reflects the impressive vision of our clubs to continually improve facilities for players and supporters alike.”

He added “The grants provided would not be possible without the great support we get from the many thousands of people who attend our games each year. We are very fortunate to have such loyal support in the province and we are delighted to be able to redistribute income from games to the clubs and schools.”

Of the fund available this year, Central Council provided €640,000, with the balance of €490,000 coming from the Munster Council’s own resources.

Munster GAA Higher Education Fixtures / Results


Fitzgibbon Cup Weekend

The Fitzgibbon Cup Weekend took place over the weekend just gone by. The weekend consisted of 8 games played on Friday and Saturday. In total, 4 grades were covered and included teams that came from all 4 corners of Ireland. We would like to extend our thank you to WIT who facilitated the weekend in their Sports Arena.

The first final played on Friday afternoon was the Intermediate Hurling Final which was contested between UL and UCD. UL proved much too strong for UCD and came out on top on a scoreline of 2-21 to 1-12.

On Saturday morning the Fergal Maher Cup Final was played between St. Mary’s Belfast and Marino Institute of Technology. St. Mary’s came out on top by a score of 4-12 to 1-8.
Following this, the Ryan Cup Final was contested by GMIT and UUJ. GMIT proved to have too much for UUJ, coming out on top on a score of 1-21 to 1-9.

The last game of the day was the Fitzgibbon Cup Final which was contested by UCC and Mary Immaculate College. UCC continued their extremely impressive form in this game, proving to have too much for Mary I. UCC won the game on a scoreline of 2-21 to 0-13. This tops off an extremely impressive double for UCC, after the UCC footballers won the Sigerson Cup during the week.

We would like to extend our congratulations to all the winners and our commiserations to all the losers.

Sigerson Cup Weekend

The Sigerson Cup Weekend took place over the weekend that has just passed. The weekend consisted of 12 games played between Friday, Saturday and Sunday. These games covered 5 grades in total and consisted of teams from New York, Liverpool and the 4 corners of Ireland. We would like to thank Mallow GAA for the use of their facilities and their cooperation over the 3 days.

One of the first finals that took place on the Saturday was the Intermediate Football Championship Final. This was contested by DCU 2 and NUIG. DCU 2 came out on top of what was a very tense affair on a scoreline of 2-8 to 1-9. At the same time the Corn Mac Leinn Shield Final was contested by Marino Institute of Technology and New York. Marino Institute came out on top of a very fairly contested game on a scoreline of 3-12 to 0-09. The Corn Mac Leinn Final was next on the cards and was contested by Hope University Liverpool and IT Tallaght. Hope University Liverpool came out on top in the end on a scoreline of 3-09 to 0-09. At the same time the Trench Cup Final was contested by LYIT and DkIT. In what was a very sporting game, LYIT emerged victorious on a scoreline of 0-15 to 2-07. The final game on Saturday was UCD and St. Mary’s of Belfast in the Sigerson Cup Semi-Final. In an entertaining contest St. Mary’s proved too strong for UCD, emerging victorious 0-10 to 0-07. On Sunday the second Sigerson Cup Semi-Final was contested by UCC and NUIG. In what was a very tense and tight affair, UCC emerged victorious on a scoreline of 4-09 to 1-15.

We would like to extend our congratulations to all the winners and commiserations to the losers.
