Limerick GAA are dealing with a 'breach of team protocols' after a member of the senior hurling squad was arrested at a pub in Limerick city centre in the early hours of last Monday morning following a row.
Gardaí have confirmed a man was arrested at a pub in Limerick city centre in the early hours of last Monday morning after a row broke out.
The man was arrested for a public order offence following a dispute between a number of individuals at a pub on 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 and held there under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice act.
He was subsequently released and a file on the matter is being prepared for the DPP.
Limerick have said they are dealing with "a breach of our team protocols" after an incident involving a member of their senior hurling squad last Sunday.
The Treaty edged closer to a Munster SHC final appearance after a hard-fought seven-point round-robin victory over Tipperary at the TUS Gaelic Grounds.
It marked the first ever time Limerick had secured victories over Tipp in five successive years in the championship.
On Tuesday night, Limerick GAA's official Twitter account posted a brief statement on behalf of the hurling management team that read: "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."
Limerick face Clare in their final round-robin game this Sunday in Ennis.
