A man was arrested at a pub in Limerick city centre in the early hours of last Monday morning after a row broke out.

It is understood the man is a member of the Limerick senior hurling squad and that he was arrested for a public order offence following a dispute between a number of individuals at a pub in Denmark street, a popular location for late night pubs and clubs in the city centre.

The man was brought for questioning about the incident to Henry Street Garda Station.

He was subsequently released and a file on the matter is being prepared for the DPP.

Limerick GAA released a statement on the matter last night on Twitter on behalf of the team management.

"On Sunday last a member of the Limerick senior hurling squad was involved in a breach of our team protocols. The matter has been dealt with by management internally and no further comment will be made on the matter at this time."
