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

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.
It's an absolute joke at this stage, it's not a level playing field at all. Funny how the Kerry Senior clubs aren't in the AI final every year like at junior and intermediate.

Pus Kilmeena's AI win over Kerry team last year in context.
Little wonder they got to the Mayo Intermediate final this year.

If Rathmore go on to win the Intermediate AI title they'll only be the 2nd Kerry team to win in the last 6 years. Steelstown (Derry) Oughterard (Galway)  Moy Tir na nÓg (Tyrone) Westport (Mayo) claiming All Ireland and with that in mind i would give Galbally Pearses a more than decent chance.


Junior on the other hand is where Kerry clubs strike home their advantage winning 5 of the last 7 All Ireland's and with the Cliffords part of the Fossa line up it's hard to see them beaten.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

There was talk about Islandeady this year maybe emulating Kilmeena but obviously Clifden beat them. How would Islandeady do against Kilmeena if they were to play each other?

Islandeady were no great shakes this year. They were happy to win a County title this year. Better Islandeady teams struggled to get out of Junior in the past. It will be an achievement for them to retain Intermediate status this year.

They should have separate divisional championship in kerry at a different time of year and stop taking up tv time  if they are so obsessed over divisions,Ohhh we want  good players to have a chance to win the senior championship  that is a bit like fifa saying hey eirling halaland might never win a world cup lets create a Scandinavia team to give him  more of a chance.

The divisional teams put everything out of sync. If there are 6 of them and 12 senior teams the last 6/12 are displaced to Intermediate and in the wrong division according to Archimedes' principle

Steelstown were very poor coming up to senior this year. Not what u expect from a team won a intermediate all - Ireland Coleraine lost one but ended up winning 2 senior championships in years to follow. Steelstown got lucky beating ng the Kerry team last year. Who would do well in a strong Derry club championship.

I watched that stream last January and Steelstown showed them absolutely no respect and got stuck in and were deserving winners.

Na Gaeil

Steelstown probably had the 2022 that most expected. Having won their first county title, then Ulster and then an incredible AI win, there was always gonna be a bit of a lull the year after, and senior football is a very unforgiving place. Coupled with key players Stateside for most of the summer, 2022 was always going to be tough year for them.
Re Coleraine, be a while before we see the likes of their rapid progression again.
