Camogie

Anna Farrell and her Kilkenny team-mates will be hoping to get their hands on the O'Duffy Cup again in 2018

The Kilkenny senior camogie team will have plenty of tough challenges ahead of them as they bid to win back the O'Duffy Cup. 

Ann Downey's team learned their fate for next year after the draws for the 2018 All-Ireland Camogie Championships were made today (Saturday). 

The Cats, who missed out on a second League and Championship Double when they fell to Cork by a point in last year's All-Ireland final, have been drawn in Group One with Galway. Clare, Limerick and Waterford complete the group. 

Champions Cork have been drawn in Group Two along with Dublin. Their group also contains Meath, Offaly, Tipperary and Wexford.

In the Intermediate Championship Kilkenny have been drawn in Group Two. Their opponents will be Westmeath, Antrim, Kildare, Galway and Tipperary. Cork are in Group One along with Carlow, Derry, Down, Laois and Wexford.

The first round of fixtures in the Senior Championship will take place on the weekend of June 9 and 10, 2018. The Intermediate Championship starts on June 16 and 17.
