Two Limerick teams are heading for All-Ireland glory following important victories last weekend. For the second year in a row Limerick will contest the All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Final following victory over Waterford at Dr. Cullen Park, Carlow, on Saturday afternoon. Limerick lost the final to Galway last year and will be hoping to go one better in this year’s final when Kilkenny provide the opposition in Croke Park on Sunday September 14th.

Seven days earlier Limerick have another date in Croke Park when the opposition will also be provided by Kilkenny. Last Sunday Limerick minor hurlers put on a sensational display as they outclassed Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final to set up a September 7th date with Kilkenny, which is a repeat of the 1984 final, the last time Limerick were outright winners of the competition.

Brian Ryan’s fine-tuned side thumped the westerners 1-27 to 2-9 last Sunday to finally exorcise the ghosts of last year’s heartbreaking defeat at the hands of the young Tribesmen and the Hawkeye controversy.

These are busy times for Limerick sports followers with two All-Ireland Final dates in Croke Park next month, but before that Limerick are involved in another All-Ireland Final next Sunday: the county’s junior A camogie team take on Carlow on Sunday in the All-Ireland Junior A Camogie Final at Moneygall at 2.30pm.
