All Ireland winners return to club action with three county titles on the line

After the heroics of the squad in last Sunday’s All Ireland final, many of John Ryan’s victorious Limerick panel will tog out for their clubs this weekend with the Limerick Ladies Senior, Intermediate and Junior titles all up for grabs over the next couple of days. 

The action begins on Friday evening under lights with the Junior final consisting of Fr Caseys and Old Mill. Old Mill defeated Groody Gaels in the penultimate round and have All Ireland winner Roisin Ambrose in their ranks. As for the Abbeyfeale side, they accounted for Galtee Gaels in the semi final. The game throws in at 7.30pm in Mountcollins.

There is a double header on Sunday with the Senior and Intermediate finals on show. The Senior final between defending champions Ballylanders and Monagea has a 1pm start. This game is a repeat of the 2017 final where Ballylanders reigned supreme.

Ballylanders are looking for their fourth consecutive title and have no fewer than five of John Ryan’s squad at their disposal with captain Cathy Mee, Mairead Kavanagh, Caoimhe Clancy and Áine & Clodagh McGrath.

Monagea were the last team outisde of their opponents to be crowned Senior champions as they were victorious in the final in 2014.  They have All-Ireland winning full forward Catriona Davis in their ranks as they look to cause an upset after defeating Feonagh-Castlemahon in the semi final.

The Intermediate final kicks-off after the Senior decider and sees Athea face off against Knockainey with a 3pm throw in. Athea will be hoping for third time lucky after successive final losses to St Brigids and Dromcollogher-Broadford in the past two years. 

They face a Knockainey side who have recent Croke Park winners Ava Hartigan and Clodagh Kirby in their side.
