Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues Division 1 Semi-Finals
 
Cork v Limerick
Cork reached the Semi-Final in impressive style with a 100% record from a tough group and will hope to reach the Final and regain the League title for the first time since 2013. Last week’s win over All-Ireland champions Kilkenny means that they come into this match in top form. Limerick impressed in the group stage having lost only their last match of the group against Galway last weekend with wins in all three of their other matches. Limerick have reached the Semi-Finals in the past two years and will hope to go one further and reach their very first Division 1 Final.
 
Referee: Owen Elliott (Antrim)
Venue: Páirc Uí Rinn, Cork
Throw-in: 4pm
 
Galway v Kilkenny
This is a repeat of last year’s League Final in which Kilkenny prevailed and Galway will hope for revenge and to secure a chance of regaining the League title which they last won in 2015. Galway topped their group with a 100% record which they secured last weekend with an impressive win over Limerick. All-Ireland champions Kilkenny will be disappointed to have suffered two defeats in the group stage, in particular their loss to rivals Cork last weekend in a repeat of last September’s All-Ireland Final.
 
Referee: Eamon Cassidy (Derry)
