After eleven years in top flight camogie, Sabrina Larkin has for the past two years backboned the Tipperary intermediate team which on Saturday will be hoping to reach the All-Ireland final when they face off against Galway in the semi-final in Cratloe.

Sabrina brings a wealth of experience to the Tipperary defence and she is hoping that she and her colleagues can bridge a 22 year gap since the Premier County last enjoyed success at this level, back in 1997 in what was then the senior 'B' grade.

Tipperary were beaten in the All-Ireland semi-final last year and while that was a huge disappointment at the time, the team regrouped and despite being caught late by Derry in their previous game, qualified for the semi-final after the round-robin series on the strength of scoring difference. An earlier win over Laois was crucial Larkin said.

We just got over the line against Laois and that was the tipping point. We are delighted now to be back to the level we were at last year and hopefully we can take it a step further this time” she said.

And Tipperary have good grounds for confidence she added.
