This will be the Shannonsider's first outing since their All-Ireland success last July, with all eyes firmly locked on how they emerge from the blocks.

The 2023 Co-Op Superstores Munster Hurling League Final is scheduled for Sunday, January 22nd and all games will be shown live, either via Munster GAA TV or TG4.


Speaking at the launch of the competition in Raheen, Co Limerick, Munster GAA Chairman Ger Ryan said: "The Munster Council is pleased to facilitate this pre-season competition for our counties as it provides participating teams with a great opportunity to prepare for the very competitive Allianz League starting in early February.

"Great work is being done by Coaching and Games Development in all Munster counties and this competition gives counties the opportunity to introduce exciting young talent into their team set-up and give them a flavour of the standards required at the top level.

"I am delighted that all six Munster counties are taking part in 2023 as the inter-county season returns in earnest in early January. Thanks to Co-Op Superstores for their continued support as competition sponsors and we look forward to working with them in the weeks ahead."
