According to The Irish Independent Gardai were called to the scene after a report of an assault. The Limerick player was arrested for an alleged Section 4 assault and brought to Henry Street Garda Station.
The report also says: The player was questioned before being released without charge later on Monday.
A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions who must decide whether to pursue a case.
It is not clear whether the Tipperary player required hospital treatment after the incident.
Limerick's official Twitter account said: "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."
