The following are the games for this Sunday at Gaelic Park:

The second "A" semifinal will be played this week, with the lads from upstate attempting to overcome their Ulster rivals in this battle.

The winners will face Rangers, who beat Fermanagh last Sunday at Gaelic Park.

A tough one to predict, but if Donegal have a full strength side on display, I feel they may overcome Rockland.

Junior Hurling Final

Tipperary vs. Galway

2.30 p.m.

Senior Football Playoff

Kerry vs. Tyrone

4 p.m.

In what promises to be a hotly contested game, two sides we’ve seen many times at Gaelic Park this season, come head to head in a battle for a place in the semifinals.

It promises to be a highly entertaining game due to the fact that both sides have varying styles. Kerry have a formidable forward line, with the likes of Dave McCarthy, Bingo O’Driscoll and Darren Reddy all in top form. Tyrone, of course, have a certain Michael Slowey in their ranks. The New York All Star has been a sensation this season, amassing 35 points in games played to date.

Added to the talents of Danny Barr in midfield, and Slowey’s brother Martin in defense, and we have a potential cracker of a game in our midst.
