This weekend will see the four remaining teams in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Championship battle it out for a spot in the All-Ireland final.
This year Semi-Finals will be taking place in Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday, Starting off with the lunchtime meeting of old rivals Cork and Kilkenny. Later that afternoon the attention will turn to the meeting of defending champions Galway as they will face off against Tipperary.
Previewing the clash between Galway and Tipperary was Waterford’s Niamh Rocket she spoke to SportsTalk Tom Browne and was quick to compliment the Galway team.
“They’re a serious outfit, they’re the team to beat all across the field there super. Their subs bench like Catherine Finnerty, like Lorraine Ryan looking at the sideline if your playing on the first fifteen and see those people itching to come on your like you want to hold onto your jersey you know. They’re brilliant and I think as you mentioned they have so much threat in attack and their backs are just as good”.
Rocket also implemented that it’s going to be a tough match for Tipperary.
“It’s going to be very tough for Tipperary, but they have some very good backs they have Mary Ryan she’s just a phenomenal player, she make any county team in the country. Aoife McGrath one of the captains this year there all very good hurlers and able to hurl well and I suppose Tipperary will be looking at it from their own players as well as playing their own way to a certain degree”.
