Wexford’s win over Limerick makes them part of a three-way tie at the top of Division 4 that includes Wicklow. Here is how each side fared in round 6 and how they stand.
Wicklow put in a dominant display against Antrim that saw them hit the net seven times. At the other end, a clean sheet rounded off an impressive performance. As a result, Wicklow are top of the table alongside Limerick and Wexford. But, Antrim’s defeat hasn’t ruled them out either. They sit just one point off the top. A win over Waterford could see Antrim go up if other results go their way. Elsewhere, Wicklow and Wexford play each other in a game that guarantees the winner promotion.
Carlow and Sligo played out a 2-17 to 2-15 game that ended in favour of the Leinster side. Both teams are doomed to remain in the Division but Sligo have a chance to prove their worth in round 7 against Limerick. In contrast, Carlow are without another fixture due to London’s inability to travel.
Limerick missed the chance to secure the League title as they lost to a Wexford team inspired by Ben Brosnan. This means Wexford are level with Limerick and the latter must win away to Sligo to be promoted. Likewise, a win for Wexford against Wicklow could ensure their rise to Division 3.
