Senior status on the line as Limerick play Antrim in All-Ireland Camogie Championship:

By Paul Shaughnessy Limerick Leader Sport

LIMERICK face into a must-win final round tie with Antrim this Saturday (4pm) in the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship.

The two sides will arrive at Mick Neville Park on June 29 without a win after four rounds of the championship.

Only a victory will ensure Limerick avoid relegation down to intermediate ranks.

Speaking after last Saturday’s 33-point loss to Tipperary, Limerick manager Joe Quaid has warned his players “we’ve no God given right to beat Antrim.”

“There’s no doubt, ourselves and Antim are at the same level because we are coming in with no match won either. This is going to be a battle until the end. We’ve no God given right to beat Antrim. I don’t think we’ve beaten any northern team in the last few years at any level.”

Quaid is expecting a big reaction from his team.

“We’ll prepare well during the week. They’re off until Tuesday and they’ll get a good recovery session on Tuesday night. I know them girls, they’re our fierce proud girls. They’re going to come all guns blazing at 4 o’clock next Saturday,” said Quaid.

Home advantage is vital according to the manager.
