ODDS | Newcastle West favourites for three-peat as Limerick Senior Football Championship kick off approaches

Newcastlewest are the bookies favourites, with the side looking for their third title in a row, following their back to back triumphs.

Defending champions Newcastle West are the bookies favourites as the 2023 Limerick Senior Football Championship approaches, with the side priced at 7/4. The Magpies are looking for their third title in a row, following their victories in 2021 and 2022.

The West-Limerick outfit defeated Adare in last year’s final, who come in as second favourites for the championship with odds of 11/4. Between them, Adare and Newcastle West have won each of the last six titles, meeting each other in the past two finals.

St Kierans, who claimed the League title with a win over Monaleen on Wednesday evening are next on the list at 12/1.

A host of teams come in at 20/1 including Ballysteen and Oola who exited in the group stage last year, while Ballylanders were involved in the relegation final. Kildimo/Pallaskenry complete the 20/1 quartet, as they reached last year’s quarter finals in their first year at the grade.

Intermediate Champions Na Piarsaigh and Galtee Gaels are both priced at 33/1, while Claughaun, who went out in the group stages last year, are the championship outsiders at 40/1.
