Newmarket on Fergus camogie captain Aimee McInerney says their target in this year’s championship is to get their hands back on the McMahon Cup.
The Blues are bidding to bridge a gap back to 2015 since they were last crowned champions, with 2020 seeing them beaten in the decider by Inagh-Kilnamona.
That defeat marked a fifth consecutive final loss for Newmarket, with Kilmaley providing the opposition for their opening round group game this weekend.
McInerney says they have to approach the season with the belief they can go all the way
In Group A, Scariff-Ogonnelloe take on Kilkishen Bodyke
In Group B, Inagh-Kilnamona begin their title defence against 2020 intermediate champions Feakle-Killanena, while Sixmilebridge take on neighbours Truagh-Clonlara.
