Derry hope to clinch their place in the last-eight of the All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Championship when they face Wexford at Bellefield today (2pm).

The Oak Leaf girls share top place in Group Two with Cork and while certain permutations could influence the composition of the quarter-finals line-up, Derry are in hot pursuit of the victory that they feel will embellish their quest for honours.

In their recent win over Cork, Derry showed smart finishing and overall cohesion and should these two qualities surface again today, further progress could come their way. Mairead McNicoll, Aine McAllister and Sinead Mellon can bolster Derry’s challenge.

In Round Five of the All-Ireland Premier Junior Camogie Championship, Antrim, Down and Cavan are confronted by difficult challenges.

The Saffrons will host Limerick at Corrigan Park, Belfast today (2pm) knowing that victory will assure them of a semi-final place. They have won two of the three games they have played to date and a further victory would considerably enhance morale.

Limerick have just one win to date and may find the scoring power of Antrim’s Sinéad Cosgrove, Anna McNeill, Emma Laverty and Dervla Cosgrove in particular rather too much on this occasion.

Down, meanwhile, face a tricky assignment against Roscommon at the impressive Liatroim Fontenoys complex near Castlewellan (2pm).

The Mourne girls have yet to win a match and are rooted at the bottom of Group One of the competition.

Down found themselves with only limited playing resources for their trip to Limerick last weekend but expect to have a stronger panel available today.

Cavan are purring along in Group Two with three wins under their belts which have boosted morale for today’s clash with Clare at Breffni Park (2pm).

Clare, with two wins to their credit, are keen to finish their campaign on a high and Cavan will have to be on their guard in this one.
