Saturday July 7th  
Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, Group 2
Meath v Dublin, Trim GAA, 5pm (L.Dempsey, Kilkenny)
Meath have found life tough in the Senior Championship so far, with two defeats away to Tipperary and Offaly respectfully. This weekend they play their first home Championship fixture against their neighbours Dublin, who will make the journey to Trim GAA with one win and one defeat under their belts. Defeat to reigning Champions Cork last game out will not disturb the flow of the Dubs too much and they will still be confident ahead of their third round clash this weekend.
 
Tipperary v Cork, The Ragg, 5pm (O. Elliott, Antrim)
The pick of the ties this weekend, both Tipperary and Cork are sitting on top of the table following two wins each in the Championship so far. Tipperary have turned in two excellent performances, scoring 7-28 in the two games against Meath and Wexford respectfully. Meanwhile Cork know what it takes to overcome their opponents, having claimed victory over them in the league earlier this year. This is the first Championship journey on the road for the Rebels this season.
 
Offaly v Wexford, St. Brendan’s Park, Birr, 5pm (F. McNamara, Clare)
It has been a mixed Championship for Offaly so far having suffered defeat to Dublin on the road in the first round, while getting back on track with a victory over Meath in their last fixture. This weekend they face strong opposition when they welcome Wexford to Birr. The Yellowbellies have already recorded victory over Offaly in the early stages of the league so they will be familiar with the test facing them this weekend.
