The asymptotics of 2-colour Ramsey numbers of loose and tight cycles in 3-uniform hypergraphs were recently determined [16, 17]. We address the same problem for Berge cycles and for 3 colours. Our main result is that the 3-colour Ramsey number of a 3-uniform Berge cycle of length n is asymptotic to 5n/4. The result is proved with the Regularity Lemma via the existence of a monochromatic connected matching covering asymptotically 4n/5 vertices in the multicoloured 2-shadow graph induced by the colouring of Kn(3).
