Limerick SFC continues tonight

After kicking off last night, there are two further games in the Limerick SFC down for decision this evening. Last night Drom got off to the perfect start with a powerful win over Na Piarsaigh in Askeaton. In the evenings other game, Adare and Fr Caseys could not be separated in Newcastle West.

Tonight Ballysteen face Oola in Mungret at 7pm. Neither of these clubs reached the knockout stages of the championship last year and will be hoping for more this year. The Ballysteen side have new management in place including former Limerick selector Paddy Ivess alongside John Neville and Donal Moran. They have started the season well and find themselves in a West Championship final.

The 2015 intermediate champions Oola will be looking to build on their first season since being poromoted which promised more than was delivered. Despite picking up three points from their opening two games, they still were unable to progress past the group stages. Alan O’Mahony is manager whilst Robert O’Grady will play the role of selector alongside coach Mick Doyle.

This game promises to be a tight affair.

In the evenings other game, Newcastle West take on St Patricks in Mick Neville Park. Newcastle were beaten by Drom Broadford whilst St Pats were defeated by eventual champions Monaleen at the semi final stage. Newcastle will be loking to recapture their form from 2015 that saw them become county champions. They will have former Limerick Selector Joe Lee as manager with Kerryman Martin Horgan as coach.

For St Pats, they will be hoping to build on a fantastic season that saw them push the champions very close in the semi final. This comes after reaching the final in 2014 showing how this side knows how to reach the later stages of te tournament. Former Na Piarsaigh coach James Hanrahan has switched alliances to Pats, who will be hoping to go one step further than 2014.

There is very little to choose between either side who are two of the favourites to reach the knockout stages of the competition. Throw in in Mick Neville Park is also 7pm.
