Limerick GAA has confirmed it has opened disciplinary proceedings against two members of their senior hurling panel who were sent home early from New York.

The 2018 All-Ireland champions were in America last weekend for the Super 11s tournament.

A video is circulating on-line which allegedly shows one of their squad involved in a street brawl with another man.

It's also alleged that the other panel member that was sent home filmed the incident.

The GAA club management appointments continue in the county.

Luke Dempsey takes the reins at Johnstownbride.  He played with the club for 10 years.

He formerly managed Carlow, Westmeath, Moorefield and St. Loman’s Mullingar

Earlier this week, former Moorefield and Kildare player Frank Hanniffy took over at Raheens.

Another former Kildare star, Castlemitchell’s Tadgh Fennin is the new St. Laurences manager.  He was with Donard in Wicklow this year.

==================
The Republic of Ireland's Euro 2020 playoff pathway will become more clear based on events in Group E tonight.

Should Wales win at home to Hungary, then Ireland will be away to Slovakia.

If there's a draw in Cardiff, Mick McCarthy's side will travel to Wales.

While Bosnia could await with a Hungarian victory.

They’re also heading for the play-offs

She died from bone cancer in August.

Spain have qualified for the Euro 2020 finals.
