Limerick celebrates conquering heroes as three-time All Ireland Hurling Champions return home


Limerick City must come to a halt as the all-conquering All-Ireland hurling champions return home triumphant after three straight exploits.

Up to 40,000 people are expected to line the sun-kissed streets of the Treaty as the hurling heroes arrive for a summer party they’ll never forget.

Some 40,000 fans are also expected at Limerick’s home ground, the TUS Gaelic Grounds on Ennis Road, for a concert celebration where the hurling champions and the Liam MacCarthy Cup will later perform on a giant stage.

Fresh from her performance at the Glastonbury Music Festival, local star Denise Chaila will join MuRli & God Knows, who appear together as Narolane, as leading a stellar cast of music acts including Emma Langford and Moncrieff, for which organizers CWB and Limerick GAA promised , it will be “an unforgettable evening”.

The ticket-only event, which cost €2, was offered through Ticketmaster and is limited to nine tickets per transaction, and no alcohol is allowed on-site.

Organizers said the gates at the venue opened at 5 p.m. and entertainment began shortly thereafter, and the county’s senior hurlers are expected on stage around 7 p.m. The event is expected to end around 10 p.m.

Traffic restrictions apply when the team travels in an open top bus from Colbert train station to the Gaelic Grounds.

Supporters planning to attend the homecoming have been urged to use public transport or park in the city center and walk the short distance to the Gaelic Ground.

Local authority has confirmed that there is no on-site parking available, however TUS Moylish Car Park will be available.

The council said the Sarsfield Bridge, Shelbourne Road, Lower Shelbourne Road and Ennis Road from Henry Street to Ivan’s Cross will have “rolling road closures” to vehicular traffic later in the evening.

Traffic will be diverted to the Northern Ring Road, Clonmacken, Shannon Bridge and Thomond Bridge.

The city council said traffic delays are expected until at least 10:30 p.m.

As temperatures soared towards 30C, people showing up in support of the hurling champions were advised to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water. Limerick celebrates conquering heroes as three-time All Ireland Hurling Champions return home
