Dublin, Kilkenny, Cork and Galway teams named for semi-final double-header

All roads lead to Limerick as the four top sides go head-to-head for coveted All-Ireland final spots.

TOMORROW EVENING IS shaping up to be a busy one at the Gaelic Grounds.

original Dublin, Kilkenny, Cork and Galway are all in action.

All eyes are on Limerick as both of the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland senior camogie championship semi-finals are down for decision.

The first clash on the double-header bill sees reigning All-Ireland champions Kilkenny and somewhat surprise semi-finalists Dublin go head-to-head [Throw-in 5.15pm, live on RTÉ], before in-form Cork and the Tribeswomen compete for the second All-Ireland final spot [Throw-in 7pm, live on RTÉ].

David Herity has name an unchanged Dublin starting fifteen from their quarter-final win over Wexford, as they prepare for their first All-Ireland semi-final in 27 years. They’re bidding to reach the decider for the first time since 1986.

On the Kilkenny front, Ann Downey likewise has stuck to the same fifteen that started their last outing. The reigning All-Ireland champions haven’t been in action since they beat the Sky Blues in the group stages, and the scoreline was 3-13 to 0-8 on that occasion.

For the second semi-final tie, Group Two toppers Cork — who won all four of their fixtures — have unveiled one change to their side to face Galway. Pamela Mackey comes into corner back, while Eimear O’Sullivan is the player to make way.

In a week dominated by the dual clash saga surrounding Libby Coppinger, she strikes up an unchanged midfield partnership with Ashling Thompson.
