All Ireland Camogie Championship Quarter-finals 4th
Cork v Clare Karl O Brien Pairc Ui Chaoimh *Highlights on RTÉ The Sunday Game* 2:00pm
Clare put in a powerful display last week against Tipperary and will need a repeat performance against Cork to progress to the semi-finals. A good start for the Banner is vital. Susan Vaughan's absence, against Cork, is a huge loss but Fiona Lafferty's form and that of Claire McMahon's, from placed balls has been exceptional and more of the same will be required. Cork had a narrow one point win over Clare in their round robin fixture and Jennifer O'Leary was a thorn in Clare's side on that afternoon, as was midfield powerhouse Gemma O'Connor. Cork's experience should shade it on the day.
Dublin v Offaly Alan Lagrue Parnell Park *Highlights on RTÉ The Sunday Game* 2:00pm
Dublin's victory over Kilkenny after extra time, in last week's crunch qualifier, may prove to be a watershed moment for the Blues, if they can overcome the considerable challenge of Offaly, and progress, to the semi-finals. Arelene Cushen gave a player of the match performance last week while Mari Moynihan hit 0-10 from 0-17. The performances of Elaine Dermody and Siobhan Flannery will be crucial for Offaly; who shaded victory when the two sides last met. Dublin, on a high from last week's epic win, may have enough.
