TIPPERARY v LIMERICK

Maria Curley would love to be back in Croke Park this September, but long before that happens Tipperary Ladies Footballers have dates with Limerick and Clare in the Munster Intermediate Championship
The Premier County spent life in the Senior Championship in 2018, after a first All-Ireland Intermediate success in ten years, a year previously; but found it tough at the top and slid back to the second tier for 2019.
“It would be great to get back to Croke Park,” said the Templemore native.
“We had a bit of a lull in the Championship last year – going off the back of a successful Division 2 league campaign.
“We suffered injuries and then didn't perform to the best of our ability in the latter stages of the Championship left us off the back of relegation, which isn't nice for anyone.
“We were used to a winning streak, and all of a sudden we were on a losing one, but thank God we won the Division 2 last year.”
Tipperary have held their own in the top flight of the Lidl National League, winning twice, including a game against eventual champions Cork.
