Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship Group 2
Kilkenny vs Tipperary (Saturday)
Venue: (Freshford.  2.30pm) Referee: Owen Elliott

The Kilkenny senior team will hope to back up victories over Dublin, Clare and Derry when they entertain Tipperary in Freshford on Saturday. A victory over the Premier County will ensure Kilkenny qualify for the All Ireland semi finals for the third successive season. Kilkenny have being impressive form throughout the campaign and racked up an impressive 13-57 in three games with 11-35 of that coming from play. Tipperary are also in good form in this year’s campaign recording wins over Derry and Dublin in their opening two games.  This game has the added bite of being a local derby with Tipperary hoping to avenge last season defeat to the Cats. Tipperary are once again becoming a formidable force in the camogie championship and were very unlucky to come up short in the Munster final against Cork by a point. Kilkenny will have to be aware of Cait Devane who is in impressive form scoring 0-10 points against Dublin last weekend. On current form it is hard to look past anything but a Kilkenny victory on Saturday, but with local bragging rights up for grabs expect Tipperary to come out all guns blazing and try and  spoil the party.

The Kilkenny U 16 camogie team will hope to get there All Ireland championship back on track after suffering a heartbreaking one point loss to Galway last weekend after staging a gallant comeback after finding themselves 11 points down at half time. Even though Kilkenny will be bitterly disappointed to of losing in such a way they will get great motivation that against all odds at half time last weekend they found themselves back in contention at the end.  Clare will also be hoping to bounce back with a victory this weekend after suffering a 5-13 to 1-08 loss to Cork last Sunday.  The last time the sides met Clare emerged with a narrow victory. Kilkenny will be determined to get there campaign back on track and a victory over Clare on Sunday will put them right back in the reckoning.
