Roscommon, Leitrim and Longford all on the road

Roscommon, Longford and Leitrim return to Lidl ladies league action this weekend with action in division three and four.

Clare v Roscommon

The top two in the table clash at Cusack Park in Ennis. Clare and Roscommon are both sitting pretty on six points each after two games. Both aim to maintain 100% records.

They are both strong promotion contenders after two rounds and Clare will be particularly keen to go up after losing the Division three final to Kildare last year.

Roscommon will be anxious too to bounce back to Division 2 at the first attempt, having suffered relegation in 2023.

Clare: A Lenihan; A Keane, S Ní Chonaill, G Harvey; R Considine, J Doohan, L Ryan; C Harvey (c), A Reidy; F Marrinan, C McCarthy, S Considine; A Sexton, C Moloney, M Downes.

Limerick v Longford

Limerick are firmly in the promotion race and will see a chance to slip into the top two positions when final whistles are blown on Sunday.

The two teams ahead of them in the standings, Leitrim and Fermanagh, go head-to-head. Whereas, Limerick are level on seven points with Fermanagh.

Home advantage may stand to Limerick in this one but Longford, who suffered relegation last year, have been competitive so far, claiming a draw and a win from their first three games.

A draw with Carlow last time out kept Longford in the promotion hunt and a victory here would be huge for the Midlanders.
