The semi-finals of the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues were launched at the Iveagh Gardens today, ahead of two exciting weekend clashes which will see Cork take on Limerick and Kilkenny face Galway.
Four of Camogie’s brightest stars Kilkenny’s Shelly Farrell, Ashling Thompson of Cork, Galway’s Sarah Dervan and Sarah Carey of Limerick all took part in the Captains Run as part of the launch. After an entertaining Division One League, the four remaining teams will battle it out this Sunday in the hopes of making it to the final and being crowned as Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League winners.
Littlewoods Ireland are now in their second year of sponsoring the National Camogie League. Promoting the skillful game of Camogie to as wide an audience as possible has been at core of their sponsorship, so this Sunday, Littlewoods Ireland will be live streaming the semi-final clash between Kilkenny and Galway. They want to not only promote the sport but to also engage fans and to ensure that Camogie is able to reach as large an audience as possible.
It will an exciting day as the live stream will be hosted by sports journalist Lauren Guilfoyle. There will also be half time analysis from both teams which really provide debate and insight into the game.
The Cats are the current reigning champions, so they will be seeking to defend their crowns from the Tribeswomen in Banagher GAA. Elsewhere in CIT, the record breaking Rebels will attempt to defeat a fresh Limerick team, who have never won the Division One League.
All four players took part in a unique photocall in Dublin City centre this morning, alongside title sponsors Littlewoods Ireland and The Camogie Association.
