Donegal vs. Rangers

Though Rangers were touted as favorites for the crown last year, they failed at the final hurdle.

This time, they’ve grinded out the results against their rivals to make it to the final where they’ll face off versus Laurence McGrath’s impressive Donegal side. It’s yet another tough game to predict with either side capable of victory. Denis Twomey’s Blues side certainly feel they’ve done enough during the last couple of years to gain entry to the land of senior football, and they’ve gained many supporters along the way.

Kerry vs. Rockland

Kerry are current champions and if they pull through this tie, the final will be a replay of last year’s when they faced off versus Donegal.

Rockland surprised everyone this year. Having come up from the junior division last year, they shocked New York by embarking on a series of emphatic victories which resulted in their face off versus Stamford in the senior quarter finals, which they won. Now up against Kerry, many feel that Rockland have already had their cup final, having clinched promotion to the top flight.

But who knows?
