Saturday July 14th   
Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, Group 1
Kilkenny v Clare, St. Patrick's GAA, Ballyragget, 5pm (O. Elliott, Antrim)
Kilkenny remain undefeated in the Championship so far, having secured comfortable victories over Limerick and Waterford. In quite the contrast to their opponents, who have yet to win a game in the Championship thus far. Defeat away to Galway and a home draw with Limerick have left them midtable however dropping any more points could put Clare in an uncomfortable position going into the final set of fixtures.
 
Waterford v Limerick, Walsh Park, 5pm (L. Dempsey, Kilkenny)
Both teams are in need of the three points from this fixture as both are lying at the foot of the table so far. Waterford endured a tough opening few fixtures, losing out to both Galway and Kilkenny therefore a win over Limerick would do wonders to get their Championship back on track. Limerick have managed to pick up just a point so far with a draw against Clare however defeats against Kilkenny and Galway have dented their hopes of progressing to the next stage.
 
Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, Group 2
Wexford v Dublin,Bellefield GAA Complex, Enniscorthy, 5pm (J. Dermody, Westmeath)
Wexford find themselves in trouble in their Championship voyage having suffered three consecutive defeats against Cork, Tipperary and Offaly respectively meanwhile their opponents Dublin have had a more successful journey to date. One defeat (Cork) and two victories (Offaly, Meath) in their three matches have left the Dubs in high spirits as they look to progress to the latter stages of the competition, as they did last year.
 
Meath v Cork, Trim GAA, 5pm (R. Kelly, Kildare)
It continues to be a tough year in the Senior grade for the Royal outfit who have recorded three defeats in as many Championship matches. Reigning champions Cork have three wins from three and look comfortable at the top of the table. They are strong favourites to finish their group ahead of the chasing pack.
 
Tipperary v Offaly, The Ragg, 5pm (A. Larkin, Cork)
This game has the potential to be the game of the weekend as there is very little to separate these two teams. Both of them sit comfortably in the table, having secured two wins and a defeat in their three fixtures to date. Tipperary’s defeat to Cork last time out will do little to dampen their spirits, while Offaly’s opening round defeat to Dublin could prove costly when it comes to progressing from the group.
