Limerick camogie side power into League knockout stages

Declan Nash’s Limerick Camogie team made it three wins from three in the Littlewoods National Camogie league against Dublin yesterday and thus booked their place in the knokcout stages of the competition.

While their male counterparts dominated Kilkenny in Nowlan Park, the camogie side overcame Dublin in the capital winning out 1-16 to 1-12.

They now face Kilkenny next Sunday to determine who finishes top of the group.

Dublin opened the scoring before Limerick notched six on the bounce to give them a commanding lead after 15 minutes. A pair of Niamh Mulcahy frees were wedged between a brace of scores from Caoimhe Costelloe points.

Deborah Murphy and Caoimhe Lyons exteneded the lead to five before Dublin got their second score of the game after a quarter of an hour.

The sides traded scores to leave the scoreline at 0-8 to 0-4 in favour of Limerick before dual star Rebecca Delee got the games opening goal of the game.

Two more placed balls from Niamh Mulcahy gave Limerick a commanding 1-10 to 0-4 lead at the half.

The sides would split the opening eight points of the second half evenly with Mulcahy (3) and Costelloe adding to their personal tallies leaving the score at 1-14 to 0-8 after 45 minutes.

They would trade further points with Mulcahy unerring from placed balls and Delee adding to her earlier goal with Limerick leading by nine with ten minutes remaining.

This would prove to be Limerick’s final score as Dublin scored 1-2 without reply to put pressure on the visitors.

However, Nash’s side never looked like relinquishing their lead and thus secured a semi-final spot against either Cork or Galway.
