League Finals Weekend

posted 29 Apr 2016, 04:16 by Kevin Holmes
The May Bank Holiday Monday sees the Finals of the Camogie League at Adult and Minor grades and has thrown up some very interesting clashes. 

Ahane won through to the Senior League Final with a comprehensive win over Granagh Ballingarry to the surprise of some observers. Ahane are the largest provider of players to the county senior team and yet have struggled in recent years to break the dominance of Granagh Ballingarry and Killeedy. Having overcome the former they now face the later in Monday's final and no doubt the experienced West Limerick side will have their own ambitions to secure the first title of the year. 

The Senior B final sees Newcastle West face Murroe Boher. Newcastle West have been the dominant side in Limerick Camogie at underage level for the last few years and are now starting to see the benefit at Senior level and they won the Senior League in 2015 which would make them most peoples favourites for the B title this year. Murroe Boher have also been successful in recent years and won the Intermediate League and Championship in 2015 and will pose a difficult challenge for the favourites and will relish their underdog status. 

Cappamore face Crecora in the Intermediate Final. Crecora were narrow runners-up in this competition last year and will be looking to go one further this year while Cappamore were runners-up in the Championship final and will have their own ambitions in this intriguing contest which is too close to call. 

In the other finals up for consideration Killeedy will defend their Intermediate Plate title against Tournafulla and Patrickswell will face Newcastle West in the Junior final. 

The Minor League finals have both got Kerry involvement as Cillard take on Ballybrown in the Minor Cup while Causeway face Kilmallock in the Minor Plate.
