Brigids are sitting atop of the group, and head to Parnell Park for what promises to be a close battle with St. Judes. This group will be going down to the wire.

Cuala head for Club Teach Setanta to try make it two for two and secure their slot in the knockout stages. For Setanta, it will be a tough ask, but they needs points on the board.
