Junior Football B Final

Kerry vs. Monaghan

Ulster warriors Monaghan and the Munster boys from the kingdom, Kerry, are out for glory.

Monaghan has not had the best of times recently, with their senior team losing its status as a first division side, while the Kerry club stand proudly atop the senior football rankings as holding champions.

It’s sure to be an entertaining game. Kerry will no doubt be favorites, but it’s never wise to put down Monaghan, their dogged displays so far this year having deservedly earned them a place in the final of the championship.

Senior Hurling Semifinal

Limerick vs. Kilkenny

Top dogs Limerick, perhaps the favorites for the overall title, come up against a Kilkenny side that only a year ago lay in tatters at the bottom of the senior hurling table.

The Cats have obviously turned the corner, and are now something of a force to be reckoned with.

Expect to see a number of big guns from Ireland brought over for this one, as both sides attempt to reach the final where they will meet either Tipperary or Waterford.

Limerick are expected to go through, but in knockout games anything can really happen.

Senior Hurling Semifinal

Waterford vs. Tipperary

The second hurling semi final sees defending champions Tipperary pit themselves against another side which seemed doomed before a hurl was hoisted this season.

Waterford, like Kilkenny, are another side which have triumphed over the odds to reach the final four, and although they’ll have to be firing on all cylinders if they are to prevent the expected Limerick vs Tipperary final from occurring, they’ll surely give it their best shot.

Senior Football Semifinal

Donegal vs. Tyrone

What promises to be a fantastic day’s action at the park is rounded off by this all Ulster semi final between Connie Molloy’s charges, and Duke Devlin’s men. Both sides have proved themselves in previous games, with Donegal being one of the overall favorites for the competition. Tyrone participated in arguably the game of the season when they ousted Leitrim two weeks ago with a one point victory.
