The 2011 Bord Gais Energy Ladies Football National League kicks off on Sunday with Kilkenny hosting Westmeath in Urlingford. The sides last met in 2008 when the Cats had a one point win in the Leinster semi final but the girls from the Lake County reversed this result with a three point win a month later in the All-Ireland series. Westmeath struggled in the League last year to cope with the powerhouses of Cavan, Fermanagh and Waterford resulting in relegation to Division 4 where they will hope to be better matched with Kilkenny, Carlow, Offaly, Louth, Roscommon, Antrim and Derry.
The Railyard senior ladies team made the trip to Blessington at the weekend to take part in the annual Mick Reid seven-a-side competition which was hosted by Blessington ladies football club with the proceeds going to local cancer fundraising.

On Sunday afternoon at an excellent Bennetsbridge pitch the Kilkenny intermediate girls recorded their first win of the Bord Gáis Energy National League when they beat a struggling Offaly side. The Cats set out their stall early and owned the ball in the opening minutes.

Kilkenny ladies welcome Roscommon to Jenkinstown this Sunday in the Division 3 Bord Gais Energy National Football League quarter final. The sides have never met before in competitive action so this will be new territory for the Cats.
Kilkenny ladies could be forgiven for facing Roscommon somewhat with intrepidation in this TG4 intermediate ladies football fixture, having suffered a heavy defeat to the Rossies in the national league semi final in April. The Cats were well beaten by Longford in their opening game of the championship while Roscommon managed a draw with Longford a week earlier. However the form book was well and truly torn up and the Cats were unlucky not to come away with a win at Larchfield on Sunday last.
