The Offaly senior camogie team had hoped to start their Leinster championship campaign this Sunday, April 29 in St. Brendans Park, Birr, but their opponents Kildare have conceeded the quarter-final game. Last year the sides met in Kildare where Offaly comfortably defeated the Lilywhites on a scoreline of 4-18 to 2-8. Kildare have had a poor league campaign and also play at Intermediate grade at championship level. Offaly will now face last year's All-Ireland semi-finalists Dublin on May 13 in Dublin. Details TBC.
