LIBERTY INSURANCE SENIOR CAMOGIE CHAMPIONSHIP
-
SATURDAY 4 JUNE
-
Group 1: Offaly v Galway, St Brendan’s Park, 2.30pm
-
This is a must-win game for Offaly if they wish to reach the quarter-finals again this year, having suffered defeats against both Limerick and Wexford in their opening matches so far.
-
National League champions Galway will be looking to maintain their winning start having got their campaign underway in impressive fashion with a high-profile win over reigning All-Ireland champions Cork a fortnight ago.
-
Verdict: Galway
-
Group 1: Wexford v Limerick, Innovate Wexford Park, 5pm
-
Wexford come into this tie on a high having started their campaign with a comprehensive victory over Offaly last weekend, while Limerick will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways after their defeat to Cork last week, having started the campaign brightly with a win against Offaly in the opening round.
-
When these two sides met in the National League, it was Limerick who ran out as impressive winners on the day, something which Wexford will be looking to atone for.
-
The match will be the curtain-raiser to the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship clash between Wexford and Cork in Innovate Wexford Park, which should ensure a bumper crowd behind the home side.
-
Verdict: Wexford
-
Group 2: Derry v Kilkenny, Swatragh, 2.30pm
-
Derry will be looking for a repeat performance from last weekend’s encounter with Tipperary, which they lost by just a single point, in what was a high-scoring and hard-fought match. They will also be looking to put in a better display than when the two sides met in the National League, on a day when Kilkenny ran out convincing winners.
-
Kilkenny are looking to make up for the heartbreak of last year’s narrow All-Ireland final loss to Cork and to go one further in 2015 and have begun this campaign in impressive fashion with wins against Dublin and Clare so far.
-
Verdict: Kilkenny
-
Group 2: Dublin v Tipperary, O’Moore Park, 5pm
-
Dublin will be looking to put their first points on the board having lost their opening match at the hands of what is proving to be an impressive Kilkenny side.
-
Tipperary, meanwhile, will be looking to maintain their winning ways following their narrow win over Derry last weekend, but will need to shore up their defence to hold up a Dublin side that impressed during the National League campaign.
-
This match is a curtain-raiser to the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship clash between Dublin and Laois in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise.
-
Verdict: Draw
