Limerick travel to Offaly hoping to avoid relegation play off in All-Ireland Camogie championship

John Lillis’ side have already been knocked out of the competition, with the teams playing to avoid finishing bottom, and a relegation playoff.

Limerick travel to Banagher on Saturday, to take on Offaly in the final round of the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, with the game throwing in a 4:30pm.

Both sides have already been knocked out of the competition, and are playing to avoid finishing bottom, and a subsequent relegation playoff.

The Shannonsiders have suffered beatings at the hands of Antrim and Waterford already this year, as have Offaly, and both sides will be keen to avoid propping up the table.

It isn’t a new situation for either side who will be meeting in similar circumstances for the third time in 18 months, having played in back to back relegation finals over the past two years. Offaly were victorious in 2022 but both teams were then paired together again after the league was restructured. Limerick got the crucial win earlier this year to sustain their League position.

Limerick will be looking to the likes Claire Keating for inspiration, who led their scoring charge the last time out, but they will know they will have to be at their best to overcome the Leinster side.

The Faithful county lost 3-16 to 1-12 to Antrim to put them in this position following a 21-point loss to the Deise in the opening round. Waterford and Antrim will meet this weekend to see who finishes top of the pile.

After reaching the quarter finals last year, it has been a disappointing campaign thus far for the Shannonsiders but they will be hopeful of avoiding a relegation scenario in the bid to retain their senior status.

The 2-14 to 1-14 win in the relegation decider in Mick Neville Park will give them confidence but traveling to Offaly will bring it’s own challenges with Limerick desperate to finish on a high.

Limerick face Offaly in the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship this Saturday at 4.30pm in Banagher.
