The second round of the Limerick SHC takes place this weekend before it takes a break to allow for the start of the Munster football and hurling championships.
After an eventful opening round, we have a look at the upcoming games.
Adare v South Liberties
Saturday April 21 @4.15pm in Bruff
The first game of the weekend in Senior A is a huge one for both sides involved. Adare lost out by five points to Kilmallock in the opening round whilst South Liberties suffered a heavy 22-point loss to Na Piarsaigh on their return to the top tier. Both sides will have
Kilmallock v Doon
Saturday April 21 @6pm in Bruff
These sides suffered contrasting fortunes in the opening round with last years county finalists Doon losing out to Patrickswell while Kilmallock picked up an opening day win. Doon face an uphill battle as they will be without Captain and All-Star Richie English after he picked up a red against the ‘Well. Kilmallock to prevail.
Na Piarsaigh v Patrickswell
Sunday April 22 @2pm in Kilmallock
The big tie of the weekend pits the last two winners of the competition against each other. Na Piarsaigh have been crowned champions five times this decade, including the last two while Patrickswell won out in 2016. Both picked up impressive opening day wins and will be intent on adding another this Sunday. Patrickswell will be right up for this game but on their day no side is a match for Na Piarsaigh.
Ahane v Ballybrown
Friday April 19 @6.45pm at the Childers Road
Another clash between sides who had contrasting fortunes in the opening round. Ahane will be disappointed to have lost out against Monaleen but may well suffer the same fate against a Ballybrown side who picked up their first championship win in almost two years.
Garryspillane v Monaleen
Saturday April 20 @6pm in Caherconlish
Both sides will take confidence from the opening day results as Garryspillane earned a draw in their first game back in the Senior championship while Monaleen picked up a victory. This will be another close game but Garryspillane could pull off a shock to secure their first victory of the campaign.
Knockainey v Murroe-Boher
Sunday April 21 @1pm in Caherconlish
After only securing a draw against newly promoted Garryspillane, Murroe will be looking at this game as a must win against a Knockainey side who were badly beaten by Ballybrown in the opening round. Murroe to ease to victory.
