MLGFA Launch 2014 062

The action gets underway in Munster when Limerick meet Waterford in the Intermediate decider with great old rivals Cork and Kerry coming face to face in the Senior final in Rathmore. Leinster’s action takes place on Sunday in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise when the Leinster Junior final between Wexford and Louth opens proceedings with the senior meeting of Laois and Dublin bringing the action to a close.

Saturday, July 12th

TG4 Munster Intermediate Final

Limerick v Waterford, Rathmore, 13:30

Limerick will face an uphill battle in Rathmore when they meet the defending champions in the Munster Intermediate Championship Final. Waterford enjoyed a strong league campaign and followed that up with an unbeaten campaign throughout the round robin stages including a 7 point win over Saturday’s opposition. Limerick will have plenty of motivation to get the win on Saturday but might find a powerful Waterford team to be a bridge too far.


TG4 Munster Senior Final

Cork v Kerry, Rathmore, 15:30

Cork will go into this Munster Championship final fueled with determination as they look to gain revenge on Kerry who claimed the title last year. These two sides know each other well and neither will fear the other but Cork may hold the psychological advantage having defeated Kerry in their last 2 meetings. Cork’s big names are well documented but it is their emerging young guns that may be of more interest with players like Roisin Phelan, Vera Foley, Eimear Scally, Orlagh Farmer and Emma Farmer making a real name for themselves of late. On the other side Kerry are a team loaded with potential as players like Aislinn Desmond, Cáit Lynch, Denise Hallissey, Bernie Breen, Louise Galvin, Louise Ní Muircheartaigh and Sarah Houlihan are well capable of making it back to back of Munster championships.

Sunday, July 13th

TG4 Leinster Junior Championship Final

Wexford v Louth, O’Moore Park, Portlaoise, 1pm

Wexford and Louth are two counties that will have real ambitions of reaching Croke Park on the final Sunday in September. This match is a vital opportunity for both teams to earn a serious psychological advantage prior to their All Ireland assault. This is one that could go either way and could very well be the match of the weekend.

TG4 Leinster Senior Championship Final 

Laois v Dublin, O’Moore Park, Portlaoise, 3pm

Laois will go into this decider with absolutely nothing to lose. The O’Moore County are up against a Dublin team that have been in devastating form in 2014 losing only one competitive match along the way. Laois though will take confidence from their battling win over Meath in the previous round. Tracy Lawlor is again their key player and she will be looking to the likes of Noirin Kirwan to help with the scoring burden.

On the other side is a Dublin team that are chasing a three in a row of Leinster titles and they have been in blistering form this season blitzing both Kildare and Westmeath on their way to the final. This is a team that is blessed with real strength in depth and plenty of young emerging talent like midfield duo Molly Lamb and Sarah McCaffrey along with young gun Carla Rowe. The form of Noelle Healy, Lyndsey Davey and Sinead Aherne has been vital to the defending champions as will that of Lindsay Peat who can be unstoppable on her day.
