Predictions:

Intermediate: Rathmore and Galbally

Senior: K Crokes and Glen (tightest 1 to call of the lot)

You'd expect Fossa and Rathmore to go all the way. They come from a naturally higher graded championship system in Kerry.

Kerins O'Rahilly's will have it tougher as they are on a more level playing field.

Kerins o'rahillys don't look great for provincial champions. I would say they will be lucky to get within 5 or 6 of kilmacaud.

The other game is intriguing. Hard to say who will win it

An exciting weekend of football ahead, would be good to see the two Tyrone & Kerry clubs win through to their finals.
The senior semis look exciting, think the Crokes juggernaut will win it outright but KOR could spring a shock. The other semi is intriguing with two relative unknowns going head to head. I fancy Glen but only because they defeated the reigning AI champs

Stewartstown Harps and Clifden finished level 1-6 to 0-9. Extra time to be played.

Point down with 1 of normal time remaining, but two great catches and superb goal settles it.

AET Stewartstown Harps 1-14 Clifden 1-9. Tyrone champions kicked on after Clifden missed a penalty in the 2nd half of extra time.

Elsewhere, as expected routine wins for the Kerry champions.

Intermediate semi final
St Mogue's Fethard (Wexford) 1-10 Rathmore 2-16

Junior semi final
Castletown (Meath) 0-11 Fossa 3-14

We made hard work of that game, there were a lot of errors but it’s an amazing experience to reach Croke Park in which we didn’t get the chance in 2005.

One can only expect what is really a Kerry Senior B team team to sail through the AI Intermediate Club championship and a Kerry Intermediate B team team to sail through the AI Junior Club championship.

The mismatch grading makes decent championship winning clubs from their counties and Provinces look weak and not give a true reflection of their journey with embarrassing hammerings.

Kerry teams get the (false) plaudits for being of a higher standard and better coached.

Having seen Fossa in action today

They would be at a minimum top 4 in the laois senior championship and probably at least the same in half of the senior club championships in the country

I’d say you could put the 2 cliffords into any decent senior team in the country and all of a sudden they’d look like potential all ireland winners lol
