Cork v Dublin, Pßirc Ui Rinn, Saturday 3.15pm
Champions Cork welcome back Emer Dillon to the side this year in what can be seen as further strengthening their hand as they set out to defend their Gala All Ireland senior camogie title on Saturday.
After exiting the league early the Leesiders have worked away quietly and will certainly go out to make life difficult for Peter Lucey’s
Limerick v Wexford, Hospital, Saturday 2.30pm
Wexford go into this game as firm favourites, especially following their incredible double National League honours earlier this year. With a very strong panel to pick from Stellah Sinnott’s side should on current form pose too strong for the Shannonsiders.
Still, Phelim Macken – even if his team is youthful – has a large selection to choose from and a solid championship campaign would be a step in the right direction for the Green and White.
Experienced players like Aoife Sheehan, Michelle Casey and Joanne Clifford will have to be at their best.
Wexford: M D’Arcy; B Holohan, D Codd, C O’Connor; A Codd, M Leacy, A O’Connor; C Murphy, K Kelly; M O’Leary, R M Breen, J Dwyer; U Leacy, M Hearne, U Jacob.
Limerick: M Lonergan; S Carey, S Collins, J Garvey; J Mulcahy, A Sheehan, J Clifford, D Fitzpatrick, N Mulcahy; E O’Brien, F Morrissey, C Davis; K Brosnan, M Casey, C De Bhal.
Dublin: S McCarthy; A Fitzpatrick, T Corrigan, R Ruddy; A Maguire, S Ryan, C Power; C Lucey, L Twomey; R Costello, L O’Hara, C Cooney; E Lucey, A Murphy, J Hoey.
