Tipperary take on All Ireland champions Cork in senior camogie championship

Tipperary camogie star Orla O'Dwyer.

Tipperary senior camogie team will be hoping to follow up their wins against Meath and Wexford with a home win against reigning All Ireland holders Cork. 

A big crowd is expected on Saturday in the Ragg  at 5pm for this re-match of this year’s Munster senior final. 

That game slipped away from Tipperary after two Tipperary players received their marching orders for double yellow card offenses giving Cork an numerical advantage on the day in  Pairc Ui Caoimh. 

Cork have since recorded huge wins against both Wexford and Dublin and are playing with power and flair. 

Tipperary boast the championship's top scorer in Cáit Devane and the Thurles midfield pairing of Karen Kennedy and Laura Loughnane gave a dominant display against Wexford. 

Mary Ryan seems at home at centre back.
