Energia All Ireland Leagues, Women and Men divisions, continue this week-end

By Aidan Corr
MEETINGS between Young Munster and Garryrowen are very much part of Limerick rugby folklore and Tom Clifford Park will be rocking this Friday night when these two meet in the next series of Energia All-Ireland League division one fixtures, kick-off 8pm.
Last week-end the light blues had a bonus point win over Ballynahinch while Young Munster had a creditable share of the points away to UCD. Both Limerick sides need league points from this fixture and it is sure to be a test of courage and attitude.
On the 4G surface of the University of Limerick at the same time UL Bohemian face Nenagh Ormond who have been a bogey side for Bohs in recent seasons. The Red Robins are badly in need of points and this one also is going to be close.
On Saturday in 1B Shannon entertain City of Armagh on the Thomond Park back pitch, kick-off 1.30. The Parish boys have blown hot and cold this season and their defeat last week-end in Banbridge proved to be a big disappointment for the fans that made the trip north. They will need to bounce back with a win on home soil.
In 2A Old Crescent also need to show form when they play Queen’s University in Rosbrien, while in 2C Bruff play Skerries in Kilballyowen and will be fancied to continue their good early season form.
In the Energia Women’s AIL high-flying UL Bohemian will be seeking another impressive victory when Suttonians provide the opposition on the 4G UL. Kick-off for this game is 5pm.
