Saturday January 25

AIB All Ireland Club Junior Football Championship Final

Na Gaeil Kerry v Rathgarogue-Cushinstown Wexford, Croke Park, 3.15pm

AIB All Ireland Club Intermediate Football Championship Final

Magheracloone Monaghan v Oughterard Galway, Croke Park, 5.15pm

By Cian O'Connell

Oughterard summoned a daring and defiant display to stun Templenoe at the penultimate stage.

Now, though, the Galway and Connacht Intermediate champions face another daunting task against Magheracloone.

The Monaghan outfit contested a County Senior Football Final in 2017 with Tommy Freeman and Gavin Doogan still influential figures.

Matthew Tierney is developing into a player of considrable promise in the west and will be Oughterard's chief attacking threat.

Tierney's brother, Enda, has inter-county experience with Galway too, but Oughterard will be fully aware of Magheracloone's considerable ability.

A decent Mattock Rangers team were soundly beaten by Magheracloone last time out as Freeman landed eight points, while Doogan also contributed four.

In the Junior decider Wexford's Rathgarogue-Cushinstown have enjoyed a remarkable journey, but now face a star studded Na Gaeil.

Rathgarogue-Cushinstown edged out Blackhill in Newbridge as Tadhg Cody fired over a late winning score.

Matthew Cody and Brendan Furlong were other prominent figures for Rathgarogue-Cushinstown, who know all about Na Gaeil's potential.

The Kerry and Munster standard bearers eventually shrugged off Kilmaine's spirited resistance in Ennis.

Prompted by Damien Bourke, Diarmuid O'Connor, and Dan Goggin Na Gaeil secured a much coveted Croke Park appearance.
