League holders Kilkenny kick off against Limerick.

REIGNING ALL-IRELAND senior camogie champions Galway will open their 2022 campaign at home to Offaly in Division 1 of the Littlewoods National League.

Cathal Murray’s side face the Faithful county — under the watchful eye of 2013 Tribe All-Ireland winner Susan Earner — on the weekend of 5/6 February, with Tipperary and Down also going head-to-head in Group 1.

Defending league champions Kilkenny kick off against Limerick in Group 2 that weekend, while Clare and Cork getting their bids underway two weeks later.

Dublin also get off the mark on the weekend of 19/20 February, as Adrian Sullivan’s outfit welcome Galway to the capital.

With nine teams contesting across one group of four and another of five, the top team in each group progress to the final, fixed for 9/10 April, with both bottom teams battling it out in a relegation final the same weekend.

Provincial championships then kick into gear, with round one of the All-Ireland championship chalked in for 21/22 May.

The final is scheduled for 6/7 August, and club championships follow thereafter.

The 2022 All-Ireland club championship final is pencilled in for 17/18 December, with the 2021 competition to be completed in March.
