PREVIEW | Newcastle West and Monaleen prepare for fascinating battle in Premier Intermediate Championship

The Rathkeale of the clash is the third of four games in the championship this weekend.

Monaleen and Newcastle West meet for the first time in eight years this evening when they meet in the third round of the Limerick PIHC.

The sides have had mixed results thus far in the championship with Newcastle West on three points thus far with Monaleen a point back.

The West men drew with Glenroe in round one, before overcoming Cappamore comprehensively last weekend.

Conversely, Monaleen, who were relegated last year, started with a bang with a two point win over last year’s runners up Cappamore in the first round.

But they were defeated by Glenrore last weekend, suffering a 2-21 to 1-18 loss.

The teams last met in the group stages of the Intermediate championship back in 2014. Monaleen were comfortable 3-27 to 0-11 winners in the quarter-finals of the competition as the City outfit went on to be promoted.

Newcastle earned promotion to the PIHC ranks in 2020 with Monaleen senior at that stage. But relegation last year pits the teams together.

As such, it’s anyone’s game tonight with throw in at 6.45pm in Mick Neville Park.

Tonight’s fixture is the third of the round with Bruff overcoming a slow start to take out Dromin Athlacca on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile Effin built on their second round victory over Dromin Athlacca with a 0-25 to 1-9 win against Knockainey.

Newcastle West play Monaleen on Friday 12 August at 6.45pm in Mick Neville Park in the third round of the Limerick Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship.
