Limerick Charity Cup semi-finals for Nenagh and Rosbrien

(Young Munster captain Shane O’Neill lifts the Limerick Charity Cup in 2014 after his side beat Shannon in the final 25-13)
THE annual Sporting Limerick Charity Cup traditionally lifts the curtain to the new season and the semi-finals over the next two nights are sure to draw decent attendances, the proceeds going to local charities.
Tomorrow night in Ormond Park, Nenagh will welcome Young Munster. It will be the black and ambers’ first competitive game of the new campaign and they will be keen to reach another final.
Nenagh are a tough side to beat on their own patch and they had a good win over UL Bohemian in an earlier round of this competition so this one could go down to the wire. Whatever about the result, the game will provide a decent work-out for both sides with the AIL division one side favourites to reach another decider.
On Saturday next, August 31 the other semi-final of the Sporting Limerick Charity Cup takes place at Rosbrien with Old Crescent hoping to reach the decider when they take on Bruff. Crescent will be favourites in this tie but they will not be taking the opposition lightly after their 6-5 victory over Garryowen in the previous round.
Also tomorrow night the opening game of the Transfield Cup takes place with St Senan’s hosting Old Crescent at Jim Slattery Park. The following night, Friday, August 30, sees St Mary’s take the field at Grove Island in a friendly game against Presentation.
On Saturday, Abbeyfeale will welcome Garryowen thirds to their home ground as the sides meet in the Transfield Cup.
On Sunday next, the first day of September, the McInerney Cup gets underway with St Senan’s hosting Ardscoil Old Boys, kick-off 12 noon. The following Tuesday, September 3rd, Thomond will play Bruff in Liam Fitzgerald Park and Young Munster will host UL Bohemian, both games also in the Transfield Cup.
