GAME ON!

Welcome to the first home game of the season for the reigning champions.  Tis is Philip Morrissey reporting from Turners Cross.  And what a massive game it is for them as well.  Facing Munster rivals, Waterford Utd, for the first time since 2010.  Much has gone on since then for both sides.  This will be an early opportunity to both set out their stalls.  The opening weekend saw success for each team.  City away to St. Pats and Waterford at home to Derry.  This will be hotly contested.
