Limerick face Cork in Munster Senior Camogie Final

Limerick face Cork in the Munster Senior Camogie Final this Saturday at 3pm in Charleville looking to claim their first ever Munster title.

The final will be a rematch of last year’s Munster decider and the sixth meeting between the sides in John Tuohy’s two seasons in charge.

With the tally of those games standing at three wins for Cork and two for Limerick, this team will be looking to redress that.

When the two sides met in the league earlier this year Cork were emphatic 3-15 to 0-12 point winners but Limerick will look to last year when they recorded their first wins over Cork in many years beating the Leesiders twice in the League.

Indeed in the 2016 Munster Final in Kilmallock Limerick came very close to toppling the champions with points late into injury time giving the Rebels a narrow 0-12 to 0-10 victory.

Tuohy does not view tomorrow’s match as a revenge mission against Cork, rather a measure of how his own side has progressed over the past 12 months.

Speaking to Sporting Limerick John Tuohy’s focus is very much looking forward.

“This is a new year and what is in the past is in the past. We have a new squad in place and we are looking forward to a huge battle tomorrow.

“Cork are All-Ireland Champions, they are a superb team and they are a very hard team to beat. The bottom line is we must be at out best to beat Cork.”

Limerick bring good form into this game after an impressive win over Tipperary in the semi-final and some good results in the League.

But Cork will offer a different challenge than the premier county. Tuohy expects Cork to set up to make it very hard for Limerick to create scoring chances:

“Cork have played a sweeper system and have narrowed the game which has made it very difficult to score against.

“Obviously we are going to have to come with a system to negate that”.

Limerick have never won a Munster Senior title and it is well within the ability of this talented group of players to achieve this goal.

Tuohy has seen a big progression in his squad since last year and believes that Limerick are ready to challenge the big guns.

“I have seen huge improvements in their skill work, their physicality and their application.

“They are an exceptionally dedicated bunch and they are ready to challenge now. Sometimes teams freeze against the bigger sides but I don’t see ourselves in that category any more.

“I want them to go out there and be the best they can be”.

The Limerick management certainly believe the squad can kick on this year and that if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.

Cork certainly represent the standard bearers at the top level but Limerick will put up a serious challenge to Cork’s dominance.

Sporting Limerick is wishing all the best for the Limerick panel and management.
