Limerick and Laois set for All-Ireland Camogie final replay

Orlaith Kelleher of Limerick and Laois' Alice Walsh

IT’S back to Nenagh this May Bank Holiday weekend for the All-Ireland Minor B Camogie Final.

Limerick needed a last gasp equaliser last weekend to secure a draw with laois.

Sinead McElligott was the late scoring hero in a game that finished Limerick 0-8 Laois 1-5.

The Laois goal came early in the drawn game but Limerick had points from Enya Harrington and Irish Kennelly to lead 0-7 to 1-1 after playing with the first half breeze.

Backed by the elements, Laois battled back in the second half to level with 10-minutes to play.

Alice Walshe then looked to have won it for the Leinster side but Sinead McElligott’s late point ensured a replay this Saturday, back in McDonagh Park in Nenagh.

Limerick are looking to win this title for a third time, adding to previous wins of 2009 and 2011.
