Tipperary seniors set to renew their rivalry with Limerick in forthcoming All-Ireland camogie championship quarter-final

Semple Stadium, Thurles will host the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship quarter-finals on Saturday, August 3 - on the day Galway will face Waterford (7.15pm) while Tipperary will renew their rivalry with Limerick (5.30pm) with a place in the last four up for grabs against Cork or Kilkenny.

On Saturday Tipperary beat Meath (0-15 to 0-11) to seal second place in group two (behind All-Ireland champions Cork) while Limerick finished third in group one following a 1-13 to 4-23 defeat suffered at the hands of Kilkenny.

In 2017 the Premier County suffered two championship reversals at the hands of the Shannonsiders - Tipperary lost to Limerick in a Munster semi-final (0-14 to 1-14) and in the All-Ireland series (3-12 to 1-20) - but when the rivals collided once more in a 2018 Munster semi-final the Premier County won with eleven points to spare (1-24 to 1-13).

Meanwhile Tipperary camogie will host a meet and greet the players night at 7pm on Wednesday, July 24 at the County Camogie Grounds at The Ragg.
