Limerick welcome Waterford to Cappamore GAA on Sunday for the second round of the Senior All-Ireland Camogie Championship, with the game throwing in at 2pm.
John Lillis will be hoping his side return to form this weekend, following a disappointing loss to Antrim last time out, where the Ulster outfit led for the entire game. It is the second year in a row that the Shannonsiders have had underwhelming opening championship games, and they will be up against it again this weekend.
Limerick have reached the quarter finals three times in the last twenty years, including 2022, when this Sunday’s opponents Waterford beat them comfortably. In Semple Stadium, Waterford sent out a statement with a 3-16 to 1-12 victory. The Deise will again be favourites this weekend, following an exceptional last twelve months that also saw them claim the 1B title earlier this year.
Both sides competed in the second tier of the National League in 2023, with Limerick finishing second from bottom, and avoiding a second successive relegation with a final day win over Offaly. A loss on Saturday could set up similar situation in the final round with the Faithful also suffering defeat in their opener, falling to a 2-26 to 1-9 loss against the Deise.
John Lillis is to name his side for the contest at 8pm on Friday evening on their social channels. Waterford are also yet to name their side.
It is a difficult assignment for Lillis’ side but after responding to early setbacks in last year’s championship, they will be hoping for more of the same this time around to keep their knockout hopes alive into the final round.
Limerick face Waterford in Cappamore this Sunday at 2pm in the second round of the Glen Dimplex Senior All-Ireland Camogie Championship.
