ROUND two of the Limerick senior football championship swing into action this weekend.
The big game of the weekend is Saturday’s repeat of last year’s county SFC final between Dromcollogher-Broadford and Monaleen.
After the weekend there is a break until August 7-10.
BALLYSTEEN V ST KIERANS
Thursday June 5 in Mick Neville Park at 7.30
Rivalries of old have been renewed in recent years. The winner is assured top billing heading into the mid-Summer break. The game will offer many of the county players a quick run out after the Munster SFC exit.
NEWCASTLE WEST V GALBALLY
Friday June 6 in Kilmallock at 7.30
Both lost in round one but Newcastle West will have taken more solace from their defeat to Fr Caseys.
But getting back to winning ways is paramount for Mike Quilligan’s men, who could have Stephen Kelly back.
ADARE V FR CASEYS
Saturday June 7 in Newcastle West at 7.30
High-flying Fr Caseys will look to ensure a 100% start against Adare, who will be without Conor Fitzgerald (broken leg).
MONALEEN V DROMCOLLOGHER-BROADFORD
Saturday June 7 in Kilmallock at 7.30
Monaleen fell to Ballylanders in round one, while Drom-Broadford were very impressive in the second half of their win over St Pats.
Paul Kinnerk’s return will help Monaleen but the champions are massively focused on a potential three-ina-row.
ST MARYS SEAN FINNS V BALLYLANDERS
Sunday June 8 in Kilbreedy at 5.45
The Rathkeale men made a flying start to life in the top flight but this task will be greater.
Ephie Fitzgerald has Ballylanders in fine form but in a competitive group they will want to move as quick as possible into the knockout stages.
ST PATRICKS V PALLASGREEN
Sunday June 8 in Caherelly at 7.30
Both lost in round one.
But the city men were playing the champions and held their own in the first half.
They had much representation in county panels last weekend and will look to that quality to get them off the mark.
