Sunday February 17th
Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues Division 1
 
Group 1
Dublin v Limerick
This is a must-win match for the Dubs if they are to keep their hopes of making the Semi-Finals alive. Having lost their opening fixture to Kilkenny they regrouped to earn a draw at home to Offaly. Limerick know that as long as they avoid defeat then their passage to a fifth successive League Semi-Final will be assured. With a 100% record after wins over Clare and Offaly they will have top spot in the group in their sights should they win this weekend.  
 
Offaly v Kilkenny
This is Offaly’s final group match with only pride to play for as the Semi-Finals are beyond their reach. With two defeats against Limerick and Clare they gained a hard-earned point with a draw against Dublin. The Cats have made an impressive start to their League title defence with wins over Clare and Dublin and avoiding defeat will cement their Semi-Final place although top spot will be their only target as they aim for four League titles in-a-row.
 
Group 2
Waterford v Galway
Na Déise have impressed once more in 2019 with an opening day win over Wexford and gave a good display before eventually falling to All-Ireland champions Cork in their last outing. A win is essential for na Déise to have a chance of making the Semi-Finals going into their final group match. Given their superior score difference Galway know that a draw alone will most likely see them progress to the Semi-Finals and would set them up for a showdown with All-Ireland champions Cork in the last round of group games.
 
Wexford v Tipperary
Wexford have struggled to date and will go into their final group match looking to gain their first points of the campaign. Tipp must win to keep their Semi-Finals hopes alive and hope that Galway don’t collect points away to Waterford. Having lost their opening two matches against Cork and Galway a win will be a minimum requirement for the Premier County.
