2019 Allianz Hurling League Launch

Defending Allianz Hurling League Division 1 champions Kilkenny have a special incentive to win this year’s competition, where another success would see them join Tipperary at the top of the honours’ list.

Parking

Salthill is a notoriously congested area on match day and Allianz Leagues games attract increased traffic into the city; and especially to the Salthill and Pearse Stadium areas.
