These are encouraging times for Limerick, but Billy Lee's team are now approaching a critical phase.
Limerick bring a proud 100 per cent record to Antrim on Sunday, but Lenny Harbinson's team are still very much in the promotion picture.
Last weekend's draw against Carlow means Antrim have collected five points from a possible eight and a victory over the table toppers would be a significant result.
Paul Galvin's Wexford are also motoring well with three triumphs posted and their match with Sligo will be worth monitoring on Saturday.
Sligo won their opening two fixtures, but losses to Wicklow and Waterford are setbacks.
Paul Taylor's team will be striving to summon a gritty response in the south east if promotion is to remain a possibility.
Following a disappointing defeat to Limerick, Wicklow travel over to Ruislip knowing a positive result would leave them nicely placed ahead of the remaining two rounds.
London were punished by Wexford during a one sided first half last Sunday before Michael Maher's team improved considerably after the restart.
Buoyed up by a surprise success over Sligo, Waterford welcome Carlow to Fraher Field.
Carlow want to finish the campaign strongly and three wins on the spin would give them a chance of earning promotion in a tight and hard fought Division Four.
