The Ulster outfit will now go on to face Carlow in the final four with Limerick taking on Fermanagh for the third time in four years.
Limerick will meet Fermanagh in the All-Ireland Ladies Football Junior semi-final after they were beaten by Down in their final round game on Sunday afternoon.

The Ulster outfit will now go on to face Carlow in the final four with Limerick taking on Fermanagh once more. Those games will be played on Sunday July 23rd.
In Newcastle West, it was the visitors that started the brighter with a pair of points before Cathy Mee halved their advantage. Down briefly stretched out their lead but it was cancelled out when Amy Ryan found the net to hand Limerick a first lead.
Ryan extended that gap but Down equalised approaching the end of the half. Iris Kenneally had Limerick in front once more but the final pair of scores came from the visitors as they led 1-3 to 0-7 at the half, a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
Natasha Ferris goaled after the restart and Down didn’t look back from here. Limerick had scores from Kenneally and Caoimhe McGrath but couldn’t get within a score of Down who sealed first place in the table.
In the last four, they meet Fermanagh in a rematch of last year’s semi-final where the Ulster outfit powered past the Shannonsiders. Fermanagh also ended Limerick’s campaign at the same stage in 2020.
