Tipperary dual star Orla O'Dwyer says she won't 'dwell too much' on lining out twice in one day for her county earlier this month.

The camogie captain played in a football championship clash with Kerry in Nenagh on Saturday 14 July, before rushing off to The Ragg just outside Thurles for a camogie championship tie against Offaly just four hours after the throw-in for the Kerry game.

The footballers suffered a 3-13 to 2-10 defeat, but 19-year-old O'Dwyer and the Tipperary camogie contingent scored a dramatic one-point victory over Offaly later that day to put the Premier county in a strong position to qualify for the quarter-finals.

They now face fellow Munster side Waterford in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland senior quarter-final fixture on Saturday in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, but O'Dwyer insists she doesn't want to give too much thought to the recent fixture clash.

"I feel privileged and happy to be part of both panels, it's been a great thing," she told RTÉ Sport. 

"And to have the advantage of playing two of them, I know last week or the week before I had two matches in the one day but I'm not going to dwell on that too much. I love playing sport, it's where I want to be, it's the best time of the year to be playing and we'll just have to get to that when it comes.

"I'll just focus on what's in front of me at the moment."

However, O'Dwyer could be faced with a similar fixture issue next month. If the camogie team progresses to the All-Ireland semi-finals, they will be in action on 18 August, a game which could potentially clash with a relegation fixture for the Tipperary footballers.

The women's senior football championship has been restructured this year with teams separated into groups for the All-Ireland portion of the competition.

Tipperary have finished at the bottom of their group and must face Waterford in a relegation qualifier on 11 August, with the losers headed for a relegation play-off tie on 18 August, where they will fight to avoid dropping to the Intermediate competition next year.

That game falls on the same day as the All-Ireland senior camogie semi-finals and should Tipperary's  football and camogie outfits end up in those respective ties, O'Dwyer could be facing a familiar problem.

"We've Waterford [on] August 11 and if we beat them we're safe but if we lose we could be playing the relegation that day [August 18] as well. I suppose it is hard playing two of them but I'm very lucky, I'm privileged to be playing two and the management have worked very well and I've enjoyed playing the two of them."

As O'Dwyer stresses, she's focusing her energies on Saturday's camogie tie against the Déise, where Bill Mullaney's charges are looking to build on their recent draw against Dublin at Parnell Park, which cemented their place in the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

"I think we're only coming together the last two or three years and there's a lot more potential in us" adds O'Dwyer. 

"The players are there but I just think we need to click and in the next few years I think we will get there.

"I suppose this year it's just to get further and over that quarter-final stage. That's what we're looking forward to and with our management, Bill is new this year and he's doing excellent stuff and playing the players that are playing the best at training.

"It's anyone's game at the end of the day and I suppose we just want to excel and I hope Tipperary camogie is going up, there's good underage coming up so hopefully in the next few years, we will get there."
