Camogie - Limerick season comes to disappointing end

Limerick’s first season back at senior camogie came to a disappointing end in Athenry on Saturday when they were beaten 4-16 to 0-12 by Galway in Athenry.

Limerick won their opening game against Offaly but losses to Cork and Wexford meant they were out of contention before their final game against Galway.

Golf - Exciting times in Senior Cup

In this week’s Limerick Leader column, Ivan Morris looks back on the recent rounds of action in the Irish Senior Cup.

Soccer - Losing streak ends for Limerick FC

Limerick FC managed to get a share of the spoils against Derry City on Friday night and in the process kept their first clean sheet of the season. Martin Russell will know that a point at this stage of the season is not enough to kick start a great escape from relegation. Limerick remain 10 points off Derry in the table.

Rugby - Munster to start Pro 12 season in Cork

Munster will open their Pro 12 season with a home game against Italian side Benetton Treviso at Musgrave Park. The opening game takes place on Saturday, September 5. The traditional inter-provincial fixtures around the Christmas and New Year period are to continue with Leinster coming to Thomond Park on December 27 and Munster travelling north to play Ulster on January 2.

Hurling - Draw for Harty Cup made

The three Limerick colleges that will compete in this year’s Harty Cup have been kept apart after the draw was made this week. Ard Scoil Ris will be up against Bandon, De La Salle Waterford, Blackwater Colleges and Midleton CBS in Group A. Scol Na Trionaide Doon will face Thurles CBS, St Colmans Fermoy and Nenagh CBS in Group C. St Flannans, Ennis CBS and High School Clonmel are Castletroy’s opponents in Group D.
