Adare wore the UL jerseys in the round one win over Monaleen
AHEAD of the 16 week mid-season break, round two of the Irish Wire Limerick SFC takes place this weekend.
Five of the six round one games had double-digit winning margins.
Friday April 5 in Kilmallock at 6.30
Oola scored five goals to defeat Galbally and had inter-county hurlers Pat Ryan and Mikey O’Brien in their team but not Darragh O’Donovan or Richie English. That round one win and the Doon U-21s hurlers success will have all in high spirits.
Not so Drom-Broadford, who lost heavily to Newcastle West and will be without red-carded Paul Madigan, while Michael O’Sullivan was forced off injured.
ADARE V FR CASEYS
Friday April 5 in Mick Neville at 8pm
Adare will remember that the Abbeyfeale men inflicted a rare defeat back in 2017 ahead of this clash of first round winners.
BALLYSTEEN V MONALEEN
Friday April 5 in Kilbreedy at 8pm
These sides haven’t met since 2016 when Monaleen scored five goals to win. This time round it’s the city men that need a win after defeat in round one.
Ballysteen were the biggest round one winners – against last year’s beaten finalists Ballylanders.
ST SENANS V BALLYLANDERS
Saturday April 6 in Bruff at 5.30pm
These sides finished 0-9 each last year and after suffering opening rounds defeats, positivity here is a must ahead of the big break.
ST KIERANS V NEWCASTLE WEST
Saturday April 6 in Knockaderry at 6.30pm
A sixth county SFC meeting in seven years and no more than 2-points between the sides in four of the previous ties.
Newcastle West won the last four county SFC ties with St Kierans winners back in 2013.
GALBALLY V NA PIARSAIGH
Sunday April 7 in Bruff at 6pm
Both first round losers in this rare meeting of Galbally and Na Piarsaigh. Both reached double scores in their respective defeats but neither scored a goal.
