Watch Limerick v Kilkenny

The Shannonsiders hammered the Cats 7-21 to 1-5, and will be hoping for more of the same with a place in the last four on offer for the Treaty women should they win.

Limerick had a number of star performers the last time out, including Iris Kenneally, who kicked 3-5, while Karen O’Leary and Amy Ryan also scored goals in the first half. Cathy Mee came from the bench to score two goals and cap off a dominant display.

As for their opponents, Sligo lost to Down in their opener, and will be hoping to get back on track when they make the trip to Limerick, but Shine will fancy his charges, who have got off to a flying start. Down and Kilkenny will also face off this weekend

Following the game this Sunday, Limerick will have another home game, as they welcome Down on July 9 to close out the group phase.

But all involved will be keen to secure their place in the last four at the first time of asking with home comforts sure to play a part for the side.

Limerick face Sligo in the Ladies All-Ireland Junior Football Championship this Sunday at 2pm in Newcastle West.
