THERE WERE SIX Lidl Ladies National League fixtures down for decision today, with Tipperary and Meath among those running to impressive victories while Cavan and Armagh played out a thrilling draw in Division 2.

2017 All-Ireland intermediate champions and Division 3 title league holders Tipperary’s rise through the higher flight continued as they built on last week’s win with a hammering over Laois.

Shane Ronayne’s charges, who went unbeaten last year, swatted Laois aside with a 5-14 to 1-5 victory in Ardfinnan.

Templeport played host to a thrilling encounter between last year’s Division 2 beaten finalists Cavan, and Armagh — the side who were relegated from the top flight.

The clash finished 2-14 a-piece, with scoring stars Aisling Doonan and Bronagh Sheridan combining for 1-11 of Cavan’s exploits while Aimee Mackin and Caroline O’Hanlon impressed for the Orchard county.

In today’s third Division 2 fixture, Lauren McGregor hit two of Waterford’s three goals as they comprehensively beat Clare on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1-4.

Meanwhile in Division 3, Meath showed their intent and well and truly put Longford to the sword with a 7-14 to 0-1 drubbing while Kildare coasted past Offaly.

For the second consecutive week, Leitrim conceded the points on offer. Wexford were given the walk-over with concerns building that Leitrim will fail to field a team this year.

And finally in Division 4, new Limerick manager John Ryan oversaw his charges to a 2-12 to 0-8 win over Antrim, making it two from two for the Shannonsiders.

The weekend’s four Division 1 fixtures are down for decision tomorrow, with some exciting action on the cards. 2017 All-Ireland senior champions Dublin are on the road again as they face 2016 Lidl Ladies National League Division 2 winners Westmeath.
