Joint-captains confirmed for Limerick camogie in 2020 season

LIMERICK have confirmed joint-captains for the 2020 inter-county senior camogie season.

Caoimhe Costelloe (Adare) and Muirean Creamer (Cappamore) will share the role under the new management of Paul Sexton.

In 2019, Costello was captain and Creamer the vice-captain.

Limerick begin their Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League this Sunday with an LIT Gaelic Grounds double-header with the Limerick-Galway Allianz Hurling League.

The camogie tie Limerick v Tipperary has a 4pm throw-in as the second part of the February 2 double-header.

The camogie tie is a repeat of last Summer’s All-Ireland Championship quarter final, which Tipperary won in Thurles.
