It is the first time the Shannonsiders have played in the All-Ireland competition, winning both of their games so far.
Limerick have risen to fourth in the outright odds for the second ever Tailteann Cup following their impressive start to the championship. It is the first time the Shannonsiders have played in the competition, and they have won both of their games so far.
Mark Fitzgerald’s side face Wicklow on Sunday at 1pm in Portlaoise, with neither side having anything to play for, as Limerick have top spot confirmed and Wicklow are guaranteed to prop up the table.
Originally, the Treaty had been placed as the sixth favourite for the cup, but following their start to the campaign they are now priced at 13/2 on Paddy Power, moving ahead of Fermanagh and Offaly in their quest for All-Ireland title..
Cavan remain heavy favourites, priced at 2/1, while Down come in second at 10/3. Colm O’Rourke’s Meath side can be got at 11/2, while Fermanagh have slumped down to fifth in the rankings, coming in at 8/1. Offaly have also fallen in the rankings, now priced at 10/1, while New York remain the lowest ranked of all the sides, priced at 250/1.
The favourites, Cavan, reached the final of last year’s Tailteann Cup, but were beaten by Westmeath, and will be hoping to put things right this year.
Limerick have already booked their place in the quarter final, guaranteeing top spot after beating Carlow 1-19 to 0-14 in Netwatch Cullen Park. Fitzgerald’s men travel to Portlaoise to take on Wicklow in O’Moore Park this Sunday at 1pm.
They will then have a two week break before they play one of the preliminary quarter-final winners in the last eight on the weekend of June 17/18.
