Clare and Limerick have both given each other heavy beatings in the past couple of seasons.

The Banner came out on top to the tune of 11 points in the Munster championship of 2018, but the Treaty had the last laugh by lifting the Liam MacCarthy Cup later that season.

In 2019, the men in green pulverised their Shannonside neighbours, having all of 18 points to spare at the Gaelic Grounds.

Since then, Clare have haemorrhaged quality players with Podge Collins, Peter Duggan, John Conlon and Colm Galvin unable to play a part.

Limerick’s potential weakness is their full-back line with Mike Casey and Richie English not involved, meaning John Kiely may need to shuffle his pack.

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney preview the opening clash of the Munster hurling championship, which also doubles up as a league final.

In Leinster, Dublin v Laois promises to be a huge grudge match, with the O’Moore County shocking the capital in last year’s All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final.

There are some mouthwatering games across all the championship hurling tiers, with former Kilkenny teammates Michael Fennelly and David Herity in charge as Offaly meet Kildare.
