THE REIGNING ALL-Ireland senior club hurling champions have been pitted in the same group as the current county kingpins in next year’s Limerick senior hurling championship.

The draws were made for the 2017 group stages last night with Na Piarsaigh – All-Ireland winners on St Patrick’s Day last year – in the same group as Patrickswell – winners of the 2016 Limerick title in October.

The two sides faced each other in the 2015 Limerick decider with Na Piarsaigh winning narrowly by 1-22 to 4-12.
