Limerick SFC round two previews ahead of 16 week break

Limerick SFC round two previews ahead of 16 week break

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.

DROMCOLLOGHER-BROADFORD

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.
