Four in a Row All-Ireland Hurling Champions to Receive Homecoming Celebration in Limerick City

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Champions Limerick will be greeted by thousands of supporters when they take to the stage at Pery Square after they secured victory over Kilkenny in a thrilling encounter at Croke Park. 

It will be a night to remember with a host of live music acts lined up to get the street party started on Monday night. 

Hometown rockers Anna’s Anchor, exciting young singer songwriter Michael Maloney and star DJ Jen Payne will be warming up the crowd from 6pm. 

Limerick GAA in partnership with Limerick City and County Council are inviting supporters to join the family-friendly party and welcome the triumphant Limerick team home. 

The ticket price is €2 including all fees. This charge is for the purposes of managing and preparing for the number of supporters that will attend. Fans are asked to be patient as they log on to get their tickets, which are available on a first come first served basis and can be downloaded onto phones.

There is limited capacity so in the interests of fairness and allowing as many supporters as possible to get tickets, they will be limited to six tickets per transaction.

Supporters will not gain entry without a ticket so please do not attend unless you have secured yours in advance.

Gates will open at 5pm with entertainment beginning at 6pm.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Gerald Mitchell said, “I’ve heard it said that you haven’t won an All Ireland until you beat Kilkenny in the final. Now we have back to back wins over the Cats. This was a stunning victory by an amazing team of young men. John Kiely, the players and all the backroom staff are mighty heroes who have given an almighty lift to us all here in Limerick again this year. Achieving four championship wins in a row is an incredible achievement. As Mayor of the City and County of Limerick I am looking forward to welcoming them and the Liam McCarthy Cup back to Limerick once again in front of thousands of supporters at Pery Square. It’s time to party! Luimneach Abú!”

Chairperson of the Limerick GAA County Board, Seamus McNamara said, “we are beyond delighted to have equalled the record of four championship wins in a row. It is a mark of the character, strength and dedication of this side led by John Kiely. The competition throughout the championship this year was fierce and that makes this victory even more satisfying. We are truly living in a golden age of hurling in Limerick. I want to thank the supporters who travelled by trains, planes, buses and cars to create a sea of green at Croke Park today. It gave a huge lift to the players. And it was great to see so many enjoying the match at the Big Screen watch party in Pery Square in Limerick city as well. Safe travels back to Limerick tonight and we’ll see you all at the Homecoming party in Pery Square tomorrow. Ar son Coiste Luiminigh go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir.”
