Saturday offers the prospect of two intriguing Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior camogie semi-finals, with former Limerick player Aoife Sheehan looking forward to seeing how Tipperary shape up in their quest to get to the decider.

The Munster outfit take on Galway in part two of the Páirc Uí Chaoimh double-bill at 2.15pm, with the clash of Cork v Kilkenny getting things underway at 12.30pm.  

"I grew up watching Tipp when they were the leading lights," said Sheehan when speaking on the RTÉ GAA Podcast.  

For the third consecutive season, the Premier County have reached the last-four stage and Sheehan has liked what they have served up so far.

"They have been really impressive and would have been disappointed that Covid put pay to their chance of playing in a League final. 

Cáit Devane

"In Cáit Devane, they have one of the best players in the country and she can get scores from any side of the pitch. Orla O'Dwyer departing for Australia to play Aussie rules in the AFLW was a blow, but Aisling Moloney being back after serving a one-match suspension is welcome and how they deploy Moloney will be interesting,

"Tipp have a lot of players who have won Ashbournes with UL. 

"Their manager Bill Mullaney has built a good spirit in a side where three players nominated for All Stars last year will be sitting on their bench." 

When pushed, the former Treaty star feels Tipperary may just come out on the wrong side against the reigning All-Ireland champions.

"Galway have been around a while and they now know what it is to win," she added.

"That is something they didn't know five or six years ago; they have that off their back now.

"Galway got to play Cork in their group and that was a great game. We'll all remember Rebecca Hennelly's two sideline cuts. That battle will stand to Galway now. 

"Sarah Dervan on Cáit Devane will be an interesting battle."

As for Cork-Kilkenny in the first semi, Sheehan is expecting a "tough" battle, adding that "there is no love lost between the pair".

The Rebels have had the tougher run to get this far and while Sheehan feels that will stand to them, she isn't overly enamoured by their new style of play.

"Cork, we are told are in transition, but their new style of handpassing the ball for the sake of it is something I don't like. 

"It could take 20 handpasses before they make midfield. That's tedious at times when they have such great forwards. Momentum will be with Cork in the first game. They got that extra practice in with the system they are now playing.

"Kilkenny won all their matches in a canter against Westmeath, Waterford and Limerick. They, perhaps would have liked tougher tests."
