Limerick manager Pat Ryan has promised to extract the positives from Limerick's All-Ireland Senior Championship defeat to Tipperary last weekend, as well as the other gut-wrenching results that went against his charges.
Tipperary survived a brief Limerick rally to post a comfortable and merited 2-20 to 1-11 victory over Limerick at the Éire Óg grounds in Nenagh and ensure a place in at least the quarter-finals of the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship for a team that has reached the last four semi-finals.
For long stretches of this afternoon's contest at TEG Cusack Park in Mullingar it looked as if the big story of the 2021 All-Ireland senior camogie championship was unfolding, with the All-Ireland champions from Kilkenny pushed to the wire by Westmeath.
The Camogie Association is pleased to announce that the Tesco All-Ireland Minor Camogie Championships will begin on Sunday, July 25th. Now in its 15th year, supporters of the Championships should be prepared for a full round of action scheduled across all four competitions.

Waterford manager Derek Lyons is hoping that the last-ditch one-point triumph of his team over a Down unit making its county's first appearance in the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship in 22 years, will provide the necessary confidence boost to spark a summer to remember.
League semi-finalists Cork and Tipperary maintained their good form with resounding victories in the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship, the Rebels shooting the lights out in accounting for Dublin by 2-19 to 0-12 at Páirc Uí Rinn, and Tipp blitzing Offaly by 3-23 to 1-12 at the St Rynagh's grounds in Banagher.
A pointed free in the sixth minute of injury time by Beth Carton rescued a 0-16 to 0-15 victory for Waterford at Walsh Park and denied Down a famous result after an outstanding performance in sweltering heat on the Mourne side's first All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship appearance for 22 years.

Both Offaly and Laois went into this match with both having taken care of Kildare and Carlow with ease and as a result knowing that their places in the All Ireland semi finals were secured. Meetings between these teams at under 14 previously resulted in Laois' favour but a lot of water has flowed under the bridge from those encounters but a tight affair would still have been expected. Despite there being a number of changes on both sides from their last outings the final score from Portlaoise's Centre of Excellence on Sunday, would still have raised some eyebrows as Offaly continued their impressive high scoring.
Our Under 14s played their second championship game of the year against Shinrone last Wednesday evening and emerged victorious. The girls put in a great display of camogie and team work and are looking forward to their next fixture.
On Saturday 12 girls played their hearts out against Shinrone and Tullamore A and B teams in Shinrone. It was a super team effort with our girls showing great skill and tenacity in all areas of the pitch. Your training is really paying off, keep it up girls.
On Thursday evening we played hosts to Edenderry in the Under 12 league. It was a big occasion for our guests as it was their first ever under 12 match given their status as relative newcomers to camogie. While Edenderry were a strong team, it was evident that our girls' were more experienced in playing the game as they built up a sizeable lead up to half time and into the second half. The Edenderry girls kept battling away but found it hard to get any momentum in the game.
Well done to our Under 12 girls who had their first championship outing on Wednesday evening against Belmont. It was a very close match, the girls unfortunately lost by 1 point but there was fantastic skill on show. We look forward to following this exciting team throughout the Summer.
