Sunday July 22nd
Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, Group 1
Kilkenny v Galway, Nowlan Park, 2.30pm (E. Cassidy, Derry)
It’s a case of winner takes all as a direct path to the Semi-Finals is up for grabs in this eagerly anticipated Group 1 clash. Both Kilkenny and Galway have been mighty impressive so far in this Championship campaign, with both having three wins from three so far. Last year’s beaten All-Ireland finalists Kilkenny edge top spot on score difference and will be hoping the journey of the Tribeswomen will not change that come Sunday evening.
Clare v Waterford, Cusack Park, Ennis, 2.30pm (L. Dempsey, Kilkenny)
The home side have had a disappointing Championship campaign and they find themselves bottom of the group after three matches. A point against Limerick was all they have managed to get on the board while Waterford’s fortunes have been similar, registering one victory in their three games with the victory coming against Limerick. That victory for Waterford came in the last round with a last second goal winning the game so they will hope they can carry that good fortune into this weekend to secure a place in the Quarter-Finals.
Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, Group 2
Cork v Offaly, Páirc Uí Rinn, 2.30pm (F. McNamara, Clare)
The reigning champions are looking as strong as ever as they continue their march towards the All-Ireland Semi-Finals, remaining unbeaten in their first four fixtures. This weekend they welcome an Offaly side who will also still feel they have a chance of progression from the group. Two victories against Meath and Wexford respectively have them lying midtable, just three points off second/third in the group. Only a win will do for Offaly.
Wexford v Meath, St. Patrick’s Park, Enniscorthy, 2.30pm (C. Egan, Cork)
For both teams this Championship has been a learning curve as both have suffered defeats in all their games in the Championship to date. The home side have put up some good contests and have been unlucky in some cases losing out to Tipperary by three points and Dublin by four points. Meath however have suffered some heavy defeats along their way and will be hoping for a spirited performance on the road this weekend to end their Senior Championship campaign
Dublin v Tipperary, Parnell Park, 2.30pm (O. Elliott, Antrim)
This should prove to be another heavyweight clash as both teams go in search of a Quarter-Final place in the Championship. Both teams lie joint second on nine points, with Tipperary shading the scoring charts heading into the last weekend of group action. A win for either team will secure progression to the Quarter-Finals however despite results elsewhere a defeat may not end either team’s Championship journey.
