Gala Senior Camogie Championship – Limerick vs. Wexford
National League champions Wexford showed no mercy to Limerick in Hospital GAA grounds today as Rose Marie Breen fired a hat trick of goals against a youthful home side in the opening round of the Gala All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship.
In front 1-9 to 0-1 at the break they really turned the screw after the changeover. Breen’s opening half major was added to by green flags from Michelle Hearne and Aine Codd, while Kate Kelly and Ursula Jacob were point scores in the 5-20 to 0-6 scoreline.

Match Preview / Team News
Wexford go into this game as firm favourites, especially following their incredible double National League honours earlier this year. With a very strong panel to pick from Stellah Sinnott’s side should on current form pose too strong for the Shannonsiders.
Still, Phelim Macken – even if his team is youthful – has a large selection to choose from and a solid championship campaign would be a step in the right direction for the Green and White.
Experienced players like Aoife Sheehan, Michelle Casey and Joanne Clifford will have to be at their best.
Wexford: M D’Arcy; B Holohan, D Codd, C O’Connor; A Codd, M Leacy, A O’Connor; C Murphy, K Kelly; M O’Leary, R M Breen, J Dwyer; U Leacy, M Hearne, U Jacob.
Limerick: M Lonergan; S Carey, S Collins, J Garvey; J Mulcahy, A Sheehan, J Clifford, D Fitzpatrick, N Mulcahy; E O’Brien, F Morrissey, C Davis; K Brosnan, M Casey, C De Bhal
