Derry will have a lot of work to do if they want to compete with the top teams this year in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Championship. They had a poor League campaign suffering defeats to the likes of Limerick and Waterford. They take on League Champions Kilkenny in their opening match of the Championship in what will be a tough game for the Oak-leaf County.
Derry have never won the Senior Championship but have competed well in other levels winning the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship in 2012 as well as the All-Ireland Junior Championship back in 2007. They too are a dominant force in the Ulster Championship and are currently title holders. Derry have the capability of progressing well with some hard work and determination.
