GAA sports are played in the stadium. Limerick County Gaelic Football and Hurling teams home stadium.
The stadium has recently been refurbished increasing the capacity to 50,000.
I would highly recommend that you try to attend a game of Hurling if you are lucky enough to get tickets.
Hurling is one of the fastest games in the world. If i am not mistaken only ice hockey is faster.
I dont personally follow G.A.A. sports but there are plenty of websites about Limerick's prowess in the field. However Limerick would be one of the few counties that excel in both hurling and football. For example, you almost never hear of the Dublin hurling team, but most Dubs could tell you anything you wanted to know about Dublin GAA football!
