Offaly manager Joachim Kelly is acutely aware of the huge challenges facing his young Offaly side as they take on Kilkenny in the opening round of the Division Two Camogie national league this Sunday afternoon at Lisdowney.


“”It will be a massive step-up for our panel but one that we are looking forward to. After winning the Junior All-Ireland last year this will be a new experience for the side and we are excited at the prospect of competing in the Inter-mediate championship and what Division Two offers us,”” commented Kelly.


Kelly, now in his third year, will be looking for top performances from captain and midfielder Marian Crean, Michaela Morkan and Sheila Sullivan against a Kilkenny side which boasts a wealth of talent from a succession of All-Ireland winning minor teams. Meanwhile, Waterford last year’s Junior All-Ireland finalists, take on Wexford in their opening tie and manager Andy Maloney will hope that Soaring Star recipients Aine Lyng and Karen Kelly can inspire his side to victory.


In the remaining Division Two fixtures, Cork play Derry and Tipperary face Antrim with both games taking place in Dublin while Down travel to Donaghmore Ashbourne to take on Limerick.


In Division Three action, Laois face Dublin at O’Moore Park,Portlaoise; Kildare entertain Roscommon and Meath will be hoping to record their first league win when they face Armagh.
