LISTEN: “This is an opportunity to test ourselves” – Declan Nash

Limerick’s senior camogie team travel to Athenry to face Galway in their third game of the 2019 All-Ireland Championship.

Declan Nash’s side have two wins from their two games over Offaly and Wexford so far in the championship.

Galway provide a much sterner opposition than the two previous games and Nash feels that the re-fixed match is a perfect test for his side.

“It’s been a difficult week for the players. They are raring to go after having an extra week. Things happen and you need to be thinking on your feet.

“We have had to make a few slight adjustments with preparation etc. but we are really focusing on food intake, water intake, and getting the girls back up to they were previously.

“When we played Galway in the league, we just didn’t get off the bus to be honest. We put an awful lot of effort on physicality and fitness in the early part of the league and we just seemed to be flat on that day.

“We have kicked on a bit on the back of the two championship wins. Confidence is up and it’s just a case of performing now.”
