As expected, Limerick’s game with Galway in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Camogie Championhip this Saturday has been postponed.
There was an outbreak of illness after Limerick’s win over Wexford in the previous round with players from both teams suffering as well as those from the Junior Limerick and Kerry teams who played prior to the senior game.
Speaking after the decision was made by the Camogie Association, Limerick manager Declan Nash said,
“Ultimately, it’s a decision made for the players.
The girls put in so much effort, they train so hard. To expect them to go out and know in their heart and soul that they cannot reach their potential or the level they reach each week would be unfair.”
Limerick’s opening wins against Offaly and Wexford has Limerick in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages, regardless of results against Galway and Kilkenny in their next two games.
However, priority for Nash is not the re-fixturing of the clash but the well-being of his players.
When asked about the date of the re-fixtured clash, Nash was quick to outline his thoughts.
“I have no idea at the moment now. That’s up to the powers that be.
I’m just hoping to get the players back to full health and back training when they’re fit.”
