In Division Two, it's first versus second in the Match Of the Day at Rosbrien when Dolphin and Old Crescent clash. This is a game that, even at this early stage, could go a long way to deciding who gets promoted from this division. Dolphin are starting to put distance between themselves and third placed Bective Rangers and a win in Limerick would set them up nicely.
For their part Bective on paper look to have a relatively easier assignment away to third from bottom Greystones while fourth placed Thomond travel to Kildare for a meeting with Barnhall.
