Preview for Senior game versus Treaty Women

by on the 7th of November 2020

Liberty Insurance Championship Group 2 Round 3

Limerick will be the visitors to UPMC Nowlan Park on Sunday in the last of the group games in this years championship. A victory for the kittens will see them progress into the Semi Finals and avoid a quarter final. Brian Dowling’s chargers are on a high after a tight affair in Waterford coming away with a seven point victory and then trashing Westmeath the last day out. Westmeath had a shock but deserved victory over Limerick in the first round and still have a chance to make the quarter final if they can beat Waterford on Sunday also. Limerick come into the championship surrounded by controversy after Paul Sexton stepped aside before Limericks last game against waterford amid rumours of lack of facilities and lack of medical treatment. Several players have decided not to play this year and Limerick have had to round up players to play in this years championship. Brian Dowling will have no doubt that beating the Treaty Women will put the team in a good space going into a semi final where they could potentially meet Cork.

Limerick can’t be taken for granted though. They came to MW Hire Training Centre last year and came away with the victory. Although they are missing some key players Caoimhe Costello is still a danger woman and was on fire against Waterford. Kilkenny will be looking to their forward line again for this game and Dowling will be hoping that the kittens are as ruthless and clinical in the game on Sunday afternoon as they were against Westmeath.

Due to government restrictions this game will be played behind closed doors again but it will be streamed on the Kilkenny Camogie YouTube channel from 1.50pm. Throw in is 2pm
