A packed weekend of fixtures with as many as five games throwing in tomorrow across the leagues
We’ve an absolutely massive weekend of games over Saturday and Sunday. Five games throwing in tomorrow over all four codes, with 2 U16 Camogie games to follow on Sunday. Here’s all the details.
Saturday, February 25th 2023
Dublin v Offaly
Very National Camogie League Division 3B Round 1
TU Dublin Grangegorman Campus. 2:00pm
Jimmy Greville leads the Dublin Intermediate Camogie Panel into battle once again this year as they kick off their season in Division 3B of the Very National Camogie League. First up for the girls in blue will be Offaly who will make the trip to Grangegorman.
The Dublin Inters will play four round fixtures in the competition starting tomorrow afternoon. And after their battle with Offaly there’s quite the break in action due to the absence of Down in this year’s competition. The girls will not be back in action until Paddy’s weekend when they face Limerick at home. They’ll travel to Clare the following week and finish with a trip to Antrim.
Hopefully after four clashes we’ll be looking forward to some knockout action before the Championship gets underway.
Dublin v Tipperary
Very National Camogie League Division 1A Round 2
Parnell Park, Dublin 2:00pm
While the Intermediate panel get their campaign up and runniin in Grangegorman, our focus will be on Parnell Park, where our Senior team will welcome Tipperary. And Dublin will be looking to recover quickly from their 3-17 to 0-05 defeat last weekend from their opening trip to Cork. This is the first of only two home fixtures for the girls in blue so they will need to take as much advantage as possible before hitting the road again.
Tipperary come to Donnycarney tomorrow aff the back of a 4-09 to 1-09 win over Galway in their opening game so momentum will be on their side. But Dublin, playing in Parnell Park can certainly upset that momentum. And that would put them in a great position before welcoming Kilkenny a week later.
We’ll have live score by score updates from Parnell Park tomorrow from throw in on our Twitter account.
Dublin v Mayo
LIDL National Football League Division 1 Round 5
DCU St. Clares, Dublin. 4:30pm
It has certinaly been a very mixed bag in terms of this year’s LIDL National Football League for the Dublin Senior Ladies. There were a lot of positives to take from their opener against Meath with work to do. But we were grounded in Round 2 woth a defeat on the road in Galway. The fighting spirit returned at Pairc Ui Rinn as Dublin has a titanic battle with Cork winning by 4-13 to 3-15. Unfortunately they couldn’t build on that win losing to Kerry last weekend at Austin Stack Park.
Point are up for grabs tomorrow however as rivals Mayo make the trip to Dublin. The Connacht ladies picked up only their first win in four games last weekend beating Meath by 2-06 to 0-09 at Pairc Tailteann. They’ll be desperate for a win, but Dublin have the chance to grab some points and make a shift up the league table.

Dublin v Tipperary
Allianz National Hurling League Division 1B Round 3
Croke Park, Dublin. 5:00pm
It’s been a solid start for Micheál Donoghue at the helm of the Dublin Senior Hurlers. But they’ll know there’s a massive test ahead tomorrow evening at Croke Park as Tipperary make a visit. Dublin are busy preparing for their own provincial campaign, but they did enough to overcome Antrim at Parnell Park.
11 players contributed points during the game and that will be a source of optimism for Donoghue with Donal Burke’s 0-10 haul influential. They sit joint second in the Group B Table with Waterford only 1 point behind leaders Tipp who are 2 for 2 so far with wins over Kilkenny and Laois. If Dublin can raise their game this weekend it will put them in a solid position before their trip to Kilkenny.
Dublin v Clare
Allianz National Football League Division 2 Round 4
Croke Park, Dublin. 7:00pm
The Division 2 competition is proving very competitive for all involved. And that stands to reason considering the implications it has on the upcoming championship. Dublin are currently 3 for 3, but it’s not been an easy task. They’ve been ran close by Kildare and Cork either side of their win over Limerick. But that’s also down to Dessie Farrell using the competition to inspect some of his younger talent. And the story of last weekend was the emphatic return of Jack McCaffrey to the Dublin lineup.
Despite a bigger challenge ahead in the fixtures for Dublin when they travel to Derry, they won’t look past tomorrow night’s clash with Clare who so far have only registered 1 win from three games. They’ll certainly have been disappointed to have lost to Kildare. But they’ll know their performance against the Lillies will need to lift again at HQ tomorrow night.

Leinster U16A Camogie Championship
National Sports Campus, Abbotstown. 2:00pm
