Galway manager Liam Donoghue is happy with the season so far. “”Things are going very well for us this year. We’re under no illusions about the start we have made to this year’s league, Tipperary are a super side but they were missing a few experienced campaigners on the day and we also had a bit of luck our side. I don’t want to take anything from our girls because they were outstanding.
Limerick had a great year last year, they really came on leaps and bounds but at the end of the day we can’t be worrying about what’s going on in the other county’s camp, we just have to put the head down, work away as best we can and hopefully the result will go our way,”” Donoghue said ahead of the game.
Limerick will be no walkover on their home turf despite the loss of influential manager Ciaran Carey recently. The Treaty County took the double last year winning the Camogie National League Division 1B Final and the Gala All-Ireland Senior B Championship and will want to make an impact in their debut game.
The other game, which is in Group 2, sees Dublin host Cork in a must win game for both teams. Dublin lost to Kilkenny in their opening match, while Cork were on the end of a three point defeat to All-Ireland Champions Wexford. A loss for either side will see there chances of making the final dashed while a win will keep them in the hunt behind Kilkenny, who are in pole position for a Final appearance following two victories.
