Listen: Limerick ladies footballers ready for Wicklow test

Listen: Limerick ladies football manager Kevin Denihan says team are ready for Wicklow test.

The Limerick ladies football team face Wicklow this Sunday in Laois in the preliminary round of the TG4 All Ireland Intermediate football championship. A loss would see Limerick fall into a relegation play-off into junior football.

Limerick, despite the absence of a number of players to the camogie panel Limerick will go into the game as slight favourites.

The team will be captained by Mungret / St Paul’s lady Olivia Giltenane who was the only Limerick member of the Division 3 team of the League. Speaking to Sporting Limerick manager Kevin Denihan was upbeat about his team’s form heading into the match.

“Very good, injuries look like they’ve all cleared up, clean bill of health. The girls have made a massive effort the last couple of weeks with work and all that stuff, great numbers at training.”

“Theres a real pep in their step, intensity at training is really upped now.”

Limerick operated at a division highter than their opponents. However, Wicklow reached the final of Division 4 and showed the capabilities they possess as a squad so Limerick will be aware of the task ahead.

“They’re strong physically. They’ve two really tall midfielders and well able to move the ball so we’ll watch that game from the league final again now over the next couple of days and we’ll hopefully counteract their strengths.”

Denihan has stressed the importance of the game for Limerick football. While other teams will harbour real ambitions of reaching Croke Park, Denihan has compared this Sunday’s clash to reaching the pinnacle, outlining how important it is that Limerick retain their Intermediate status at least.

“We’re going all out to win this, were throwing all our eggs into one basket. Always the plan was to focus 22nd of July or 23rd. We’re playing now Sunday and its literally win win win.”

Best of luck to the team and backroom staff on Sunday.
