Four Inter County Fixtures this weekend as the Dublin U16 Ladies start their Leinster Championship Campaign
Saturday March 4th 2023
Dublin v Kilkenny
Very National Camogie League Division 1. Round 3
Parnell Park, Dublin. 2:00pm
After suffering defeats to both Cork and Tipperary so far in this year’s National Camogie League fixtures, Dublin will be looking to get a win on the board this weekend. And they’ll be facing a Kilkenny side who have also yet to secure a win so far in Division 1A
Kilkenny have fallen short to both Clare and Galway so far so for both sides tomorrow’s game is one of great importance. But Dublin’s second half performance against Tipperary last weekend saw a huge improvement. And with time running out the Dubs will want to avoid being at the bottom of the table with games against Galway and Clare to come.
Dublin v Meath
Leinster U16A Ladies Football Championship Round 1
TU Dublin, Blanchardstown. 2:00pm
Reigning U16 Ladies Football Champions Dublin will be looking for a bright start to the 2023 campaign tomorrow afternoon. TU Dublin’s Blanchardstown Campus will pose as home territory for the girls in blue as they welcome Meath.
These sides squared off in last year’s provincial final with Dublin running out 3-09 to 2-06 winners in the May decider. This year along with Meath, Dublin will face Kildare and Wexford in the three phase Round Robin. The final of the competition will take place at the beginning of May.
Derry v Dublin
Allianz National Football League Division 2 Round 5
Celtic Park, Derry. 5:00pm
While it hasn’t been a smooth run so far in this year’s National Football League, Dublin are still four wins from four games. They’ve been ran close by Kildare, Cork and Clare while securing a convincing win over Limerick in Round 2. This weekend they’ll face their thoughest opponents to date with Derry waiting to pounce at Celtic Park.
Derry share the top spot with Dublin in Division 2, edging ahead with a superior score difference. So this top of the table clash will certainly be worth tuning in for. And if anything this test will give Dessie Farrell a good indication of where his side stand ahead of this year’s Championship campaign. Dublin will be keen to make a statement this weekend.
Sunday March 5th 2023
Dublin v Kilkenny
Leinster Minor A Camogie Championship Final
National Sports Campus, Abbotstown. 2:00pm
After their 3-04 to 0-04 victory over Wexford midway through February, Dublin‘s Minor A Camogie panel will be really up for the challenge on Sunday as they square off against Kilkenny in this year’s Leinster Championship decider.
In the Semi Final the girls in blue netter 3 goals by Anna Simpson, Nicola Cotter and Helen Reynolds. They may have had a nervy start but soon settled into the game. And despite a tough challenge from Wexford they stood tall and eventually overcame the Wexford pressure. They’ll know Kilkenny pose a different threat but it’s not one they should shy away from as there is a vast amount of talent in the ranks.
We’ll bing you news on all these games on Sunday evening so be sure to stay tuned.
