LIMERICK will host Tipperary in the preliminary quarter-final of the Tailteann Cup at Mick Neville Park on Saturday (4pm).

Quick-fire opening half goals from Danny Neville (Ballysteen) and Paul Maher (Adare) helped the side to an easy win over London at Parnell Park, Dublin, over the bank holiday weekend.

Meanwhile, the Limerick ladies greatly impressed in a 1-12 to 0-8 away win over Longford in the opening group fixture of the All-Ireland Junior Football Championship.

The Limerick scores came through Iris Kennelly (1-2), Deborah Murphy (0-4), Róisín Ambrose (0-3), Cathy Mee (0-2), and Kate Kennedy, 0-1.
