Dates set for 2010 hurling and football championships

DATES and venues for the 2010 Munster hurling and football championships have been finalised and the U-21 footballers will be the first team into action. They will play Limerick, under lights at Páirc na nGael, on Wednesday March 3 at 7.30pm. Should Clare manage to win this one, they will play their semi-final against Tipperary under lights, on Thursday March 18 at Semple Stadium.
Clare agreed to both of these games being under lights in mid week because of the involvement of a lot of their squad with their senior panel at a time when there will also be National League fixtures.
