Clare begin their Munster Intermediate Ladies Football campaign on Saturday as they take on Limerick.

Kilmihill is the venue where the opening round of the Munster Championship throws-in at 2pm. Clare come into this game on the back of a strong League campaign which saw them knocked out in the semi-finals by Westmeath.

They played in the Intermediate Championship last year for the first time since 2009 when they went on to win the All-Ireland title. In their 2015 Munster bid, Clare were defeated by Waterford who went on to win the national title and are now playing at Senior level.
