Garryspillane are winless so far this term, while Monaleen and Mungret St Paul’s have secured two victories each.
The action continues in the Limerick Hurling Championship this evening, with games to be played in three of the top four tiers.
There are two Senior games on offer in group two, with Ballybrown, who sit top of the pile, in action against a Garryspillane side yet to pick up a win. A closer affair is on the cards in Claughaun, as Monaleen meet Mungret St Paul’s, with both sides recording two wins from their three games.
A win for Ballybrown will see them extend their unbeaten run in this year’s championship, boasting two wins and a draw so far, sharing the spoils with Adare in round two.
It’s a stark contrast to Garryspillane, the 2005 champions losing two and drawing one of their opening games, and desperate for points.
Monaleen and Mungret St Paul’s are separated by just one point, the 2021 PIHC champions ahead due to a point secured in a draw with Garryspillane in round two.
Having won the PIHC in 2022 themselves, Monaleen have looked well able for Senior since coming up, recording massive wins over Garryspillane and South Liberties, although Ballybrown beat them comfortably in round one.
A win would prove pivotal for either side, as the group phase nears it’s conclusion.
In the Premier Intermediate championship there is just one game on offer, as Effin, who are joint top, meet Na Piarsaigh.
The Sky Blues have won two and lost two this term, while Effin top the group with three wins from four, losing to Dromin Athlacca in round two.
Two games are to be played in the Junior A championship, as group one leaders Monagea clash with Kilteely Dromkeen in Croagh.
It’s three wins from three for the west club this year, who will no doubt be hoping to preserve their 100% record.
Bruff and Rathkeale lock horns in group four, the tie to be played in Rathbane at 6:30pm, to round out the Friday hurling fixtures.
