PREVIEW: Limerick Ladies face Derry in crucial All-Ireland Junior Championship clash

Limerick take on Derry this Sunday in their second game of the 2021 All-Ireland Ladies Football Junior Championship.

After a seven point defeat to early favourites Wicklow last weekend, Limerick manager Donal Ryan has firmly set his sights on Derry.

“We just have to forget about today, we haven’t time to really dwell on it, we just have to move on and get ready for Derry now next Sunday”

Against Wicklow, Limerick’s indiscipline cost them with two players sent to the bin. Limerick trailed by just three at the break but struggled after the restart, scoring only twice in the final half hour.

Having competed in Division 3 of the League, Wicklow came into the game as favourites but there is no doubting they will need to learn from the lessons in Callan if they are to overcome Derry on Sunday.

Limerick will also have group games against Antrim and Carlow to follow, but it’s Derry that will pose Ryan’s side the latest threat.

The Ulster side overcame Antrim 1-7 to 0-7 in their opener and will be keen to continue their perfect start to the season.

Ryan has no doubt about the challenge that faces his side but is confident in their ability.

“All these teams have improved but as I’ve said, I’d like to think we’ve improved as well”

Antrim will await Limerick next weekend with Ryan’s side afforded a week off in round four before rounding off their campaign against Carlow.
