For the first time in fourteen years, the Limerick Camogie team will compete in a senior All-Ireland quarter-final.
On Saturday evening, Limerick take on Tipperary in Thurles as part of a quarter-final double header which also features Galway and Waterford.
The sense of occasion surrounding the game has been huge for captain Caoimhe Costello who is confident in her sides ability to live up to expectations ahead of the game in Thurles this Saturday evening.
“There’s a massive buzz around the place and it’s great that we can come in here (LIT Gaelic Grounds) and train this evening.”
“So hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves this Saturday.”
Despite the fact that Limerick haven’t appeared in the knockout stages in so long, this youthful side has been involved in plenty of high profile games at underage level over the past few years.
Costello was part of the Limerick minor camogie side that clinched All-Ireland honours in 2014, scoring 2-6 on the day with a number of that side now joining her in the senior set up.
Costello acknowledges how vital that experience will be come throw-in this weekend.
“We’ve been lucky at underage that we have got to participate on the biggest stage on numerous occasions but at the end of the day we still have a job to do.”
“Yeah it’s great we got past the group stages into the knockout stages but if we just focus on the occasion then we are going to do ourselves an injustice.”
