  • Limerick are bidding to reach the All-Ireland final for a third successive year, something they last achieved in 1935. They went on to reach a fourth successive final in 1936.
  • Galway and Limerick met in this year’s Allianz League when the Tribesmen won by 0-27 to 1-18 in the TUS Gaelic Grounds in February.
  • John Kiely is in his sixth season as Limerick manager. Their championship record in that period reads: Played 29, Won 22, Drew 2, Lost 5.

    WHO DOES BEST: PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS OR QUARTER-FINAL WINNERS?

    It’s 28-22 in wins for provincial winners over All-Ireland quarter-final winners in the semi-final since the hurling championship exited the straight knock-out system in 1997. There were also two draws.

    Leinster winners have fared much better in semi-finals than their Munster counterparts. Leinster champions have won 17, lost eight and drawn two; Munster champions have won 11, lost 14 and drawn two.

    Munster champions went through a particularly bad spell between 2012 and 2019 when they lost seven and won one of eight All-Ireland semi-finals. Tipperary (2016) were the only winners. Tipperary (2012-2015), Cork (2014-2017-2018), Limerick (2013-2019) all lost.

    Limerick won their last two All-Ireland semi-finals (2020-2021) as Munster winners. Kilkenny lost their last two semi-finals (2020-2021) as Leinster winners.
