Reigning champions Galway set for rematch with Cork after All-Ireland group stage draw

2019 ALL-IRELAND senior camogie champions Galway will face the Cork team they defeated in last year’s semi-final in the group stages this season.

This evening’s draw for the senior competition saw Galway pitted in Group 1 with Cork, Offaly and Wexford. 

Cork won the O’Duffy Cup in 2018 but were dethroned last August at the semi-final juncture when Galway won out by 0-14 to 1-10 in Limerick. 

Kilkenny, who were defeated in last year’s decider in Croke Park by Galway, will meet Limerick, Waterford and Westmeath in Group 2.

The remaining group sees Tipperary, beaten semi-finalists in last year’s campaign, in line to take on Clare and Dublin.

The structure of the competition will see the winners of Group 1 and 2 proceed directly to the semi-finals in the revised format. Then the quarter-finals will see a further draw take place where the winner of Group 3 and the runners-up of Groups 1, 2 and 3 will play each other.
