Glenroe and Bruff will travel to Killmallock on Friday 3rd of September to play the opening fixture of this years Limerick County Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship’s Group 2.

After coming agonisingly close to getting a final spot last year, Glenroe fell short to Mungret in last year’s semi. Now with another season experience under the squads belt, Glenroe now know what’s required to earn a spot in this years final.

“At this point in the championship, it’s just focusing on the first match then taking it from there.”

Captain Steven Walsh will be controlling operations on the pitch for Glenroe in the upcoming championship. Despite no corners being cut in terms of preparation, Walsh is still prepared for the unpredictable nature of the tournament.

“There’s nothing between any of the teams up there which is brilliant, there’s a great fast flowing brand of hurling that all the teams are playing up there so it’s a great division to be involved in.”

Walsh is more than familiar with Glenroe’s first opponent in the championship. Bruff and Glenroe have been exchanging blows over the past few tournaments, making their future this weekend the latest addition to their growing rivalry.

“We met them last year in the group stages as well and they got the better of us. We played them this year in the South Championship and we got one over them so there’s going to be nothing between us, so it’ll be all down to the day and who performs best.”
