A selection of Irish hurling teams will head for Boston this fall
Fresh off their victorious run in the GAA All-Ireland Hurling Senior Championship, Limerick hurlers will be packing their bags for Boston in November.
The GAA has announced that four senior hurling teams will be heading stateside in November to take part in the Super 11s tournament. Limerick will join Clare, Wexford, and Cork in the U.S.
The exhibition tournament is scheduled to take place on hollowed Boston sports field Fenway Park from November 14 - 18.
The Super 11s sees each side field 11 players, with no limit on substitutions. Each match has two 20 minute halves, and only goals can be scored – a goal scored from within the defensive zone is three points while a goal scored from outside the defensive zone is five points.
Last year, Clare hurlers won the Boston tournament. Galway, Dublin, and Tipperary also participated. This will be the third year that hurling will be hosted in Fenway Park.
