Along with the Dublin LGFA Senior Club Championship the Intermediate and Junior A championships also begin this evening
A big evening this evening as the Dublin LGFA Senior Club Championship swings into action with four games down for decision.
Tonight also sees the start of the Intermediate and the Junior A championships with four games in each competition.
All eyes will be on Kilboggett Park as reigning champions Foxrock Cabinteely get the defence of their title underway in Group A against southside rivals and last years finalists Kilmacud Crokes.
Foxrock claimed the 2020 Leinster title last week in their rearranged final from last season and that game under the belt could prove pivotal tonight. Crokes though will have the disappointment of losing out last season in the final as a driving force this year and this one should be cracking game.
The other game in the group sees Thomas Davis welcome Clontarf to their Kiltipper Road venue for their round one clash. Davis have already secured one title this season beating Ballyboden St Endas last week in the Division 1 Adult Cup final and will head into the game in confident mood.
Clontarf will welcome back their Dublin quartet of Siobhan Killeen, Caoimhe O’Connor, Niamh Hetherton and Sarah Fagan, with Killeen, O’Connor and Hetherton adding serious firepower to the team, this one has all the hallmarks of a classic encounter.
In Group B Cuala will host Ballyboden St Endas at their Dalkey venue, Cuala will be hoping to make home advantage count and get off to a positive start. Boden though could be the dark horses in this years championship and will look to lay down a marker tonight.
Abbotstown is the venue for the meeting of St Brigids and Fingallians in the second game in Group B.
St Brigids were finalists two years ago and will have their sights fixed on a return to the county final, whether they have enough in their locker to achieve that aim will be revealed over the coming weeks but a winning start tonight would certainly set them off on the right footing.
Their opponents Fingallians have been motoring along nicely this season, they reached the semi finals of the Adult Cup competition bowing out to Ballyboden St Endas. They are a side well capable of racking up big scores and can be a match for any side on their day.
If recent meetings between the teams are any indicator for tonight’s game this one should be a very close affair.
