Leitrim will face Munster runners-up Clare in the TG4 Ladies Intermediate Championship Quarter-Final in Birr after the Banner women overcame Limerick last Friday. Amidst the furore over the Camogie “coin-toss” between Clare and Dublin, it escaped attention that three members of the Clare team had lined out on Friday in a Qualifier game against Limerick that went to extra-time before the Banner women emerged with a one point win on a scoreline of 3-7 to 3-6.
