Sunday February 4th
Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues Division 1, Group 1
 
Galway v Tipperary, Gort GAA, 2.00pm (R. Kelly, Kildare)
Galway will see this as a must-win fixture if they are to make the Semi-Finals following a disappointing heavy defeat to Cork on the opening weekend, as they go in search of their first points of the campaign. Tipperary have started the campaign brightly securing their first win last weekend against Offaly in impressive fashion having narrowly lost to Wexford on the opening weekend.
 
Offaly v Wexford, St. Rynagh’s GAA, Banagher, 2.00pm (C. Egan, Cork)
Offaly’s campaign got off to a disappointing start last weekend as they fell to a heavy defeat against an in-from Tipperary side. Wexford have begun the campaign well following up their opening weekend victory over Tipperary by running All-Ireland champions Cork to within 2-points last weekend in a thrilling encounter. A win this weekend for the Yellowbellies would put them in a strong position of making the Semi-Finals going into their final fixture.
 
Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues Division 1, Group 2
 
Kilkenny v Waterford, Conahy Shamrocks GAA, 1.30pm (A. Larkin, Cork)
The Cats have begun the campaign in impressive style with two comfortable wins under their belt against Clare and Dublin. They were made to work hard for long periods against Dublin a fortnight ago and will hope to plough a more comfortable passage this weekend. Waterford are unbeaten so far in this campaign having followed up their opening weekend win against Meath with a draw against Clare last weekend. Beth Carton has been outstanding so far for na Déise top scoring in both their matches and will hope to further strengthen her growing reputation against the reigning League champions.
 
Limerick v Clare, Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale, 2.00pm (L. Dempsey, Kilkenny)
Limerick are unbeaten so far in this campaign having drawn on the opening weekend against Dublin, before securing their first win of the season with an impressive 14-point win over Meath last weekend. Clare will hope to bounce back from a heavy opening day defeat, albeit at the hands of the reigning League champions Kilkenny.
 
Meath v Dublin, Trim GAA, 2.00pm (É. Cassidy, Derry)
Meath will be licking their wounds after back-to-back defeats against Waterford and Limerick and will be eager to gain their first points of the campaign. Dublin followed up their draw against Limerick on the opening weekend by giving a good account of themselves in defeat against the reigning league champions Kilkenny, leading them at one stage of the second half before eventually falling away in the final third of the match.
