Two teams in action this Sunday

Both adult inter-county camogie teams will commence their Irish Daily Star National League campaigns on Sunday, with the full panels not yet finalised at the time of writing.
The Seniors are at home to Clare while the Intermediates will play host to Kildare, with the venues and times to be announced.
The Senior joint managers are John Kelly and Matthew Flynn-O'Connor, with the training duties undertaken by Alan Stafford who is also a selector along with Eddie Scally. The team administrator is Barbara Ryan.
Intermediate manager Tom Dunphy will be assisted by trainer David Byrne, selectors Paudge Courtney, Jim O'Sullivan, Rose Ryan and Donnacha Kerins, physio Shauna Jordan, and nutritionists Yvonne Treacy and Martina O'Sullivan.
The delay in naming the panels has arisen as the Oulart-The Ballagh contingent have yet to return to training, but they are expected back this week. Three other Senior players from last year have not partaken in training to date: Bríd Gordon, Ciara Donohoe and Kate Kelly.
Meanwhile, Wexford Minor camogie manager Mick Curran, selectors Amy Ryan and Pat Redmond, have named their panel for the opening All-Ireland championship clash, at home to Limerick on Saturday, February 20.
There are a number of last year's panel still in the grade, coupled with exciting players graduating into the Minor ranks from Under-16, which results in a very dynamic squad.
After hosting Limerick, Wexford travel to Galway seven days later before a month's break ends with a trip over the county border to Waterford. The round-robin stage finishes, potentially, a week later with a home clash with Cork that might go some way to booking a semi-final spot for the Slaneysiders.
The Minor camogie panel for 2016 is as follows: Liza Bates, Amy Conroy (Duffry Rovers); Emma Codd, Aine Ennis, Sarah O'Connor (St. Martin's); Róisín Cooney, Holly Hynes, Clodagh Jackman, Emma Kiely (Glynn-Barntown); Orla Crowe, Orla Molloy (Naomh Eanna); Aoife Curran, Una Sinnott (Craanford-Monaseed); Derbhla Doyle (Oylegate-Glenbrien); Oonagh Doyle, Leanne Foley, Aoife Guiney (Rathnure); Aoife Dunne (Oulart-The Ballagh); Siobhán Fanning, Aoife McCrea (Rapparees); Emma Furlong (Castletown-Liam Mellows); Rachel Kelly, Róisín Kelly (Bunclody); Shauna Kelly (St. Ibar's/Shelmalier).
