Limerick, who are jointly managed by Paul Neenan and Tony Dunne booked their place in the final with an impressive performance against Clare a fortnight ago.

After an entertaining draw in the final round with the Banner, Limerick got the upper hand in the rematch, winning out 1-8 to 1-6 in Clonmel with the Clare goal coming as a late consolation. Captain Lucy O’Brien was given the player of the match award on the day.

Limerick booked their place in the semi-finals with two wins, two draws and just one defeat from their round robin fixtures. They began their campaign in style with an impressive 3-14 to 0-4 win over Offaly in Kilmallock. They were held to a draw in Wexford next time out before responding with a comprehensive 2-15 to 0-9 result in Meath. Antrim were 3-8 to 0-10 victors when they met earlier on the group which was their penultimate game before the first Clare clash.

Antrim come into the clash on the back of five successive wins in the championship. The Ulster outfit were beaten by Clare in their opener, 1-8 to 0-6 but have responded in style with successive wins over Offaly, Wexford, Limerick and Meath before overcoming Wexford in the semi-finals. They were comfortable in that last four victory, sealing their place in the final with a 4-12 to 1-8 win over the Yellowbellies.

The recent form of the Ulster side will have them as slight favourites but if Limerick can keep the Antrim goal threat at bay, it will go a long way in upsetting the odds as they seek a first Minor title since 2014.
