Loughmore Castleiney will play Limerick champions, Na Piarsaigh, in the AIB Munster Club championship quarter final at Semple Stadium on Sunday October 27 at 2pm.

We wish Loughmore all the best for what will be their fifth ever Munster club game.

They lost to Patrickswell of Limerick in the 1988 semi-final at Thurles, but beat Erins Own of Cork, Adare of Limerick and Tulla of Clare to win the 2007 Munster title.

Both clubs have one Munster club title- Loughmore Castleiney in 2007 and Na Piarsaigh in 2011.

Both lost at All Ireland semi-final stage to eventual winners Portumna and Loughiel Shamrocks respectively.

In the club championship, nine Tipperary clubs have won a total of 12 Munster and three All Ireland titles. 18 Tipp clubs have played in the competition and were involved in 102 games.

Tipp and Limerick clubs have met on 30 occasions in this competition with 15 wins going Tipp’s way, 10 to Limerick and five draws.
