Champions Kilkerrin-Clonberne will face-off against Donaghmoyne in the 2022 All-Ireland Senior Club Championship Final.

The Senior, Intermediate, and Junior Final pairings were confirmed over the weekend, with Longford Slashers to play Mullinahone in the Intermediate decider, while Salthill-Knocknacarra will meet Naomh Abán in the Junior showpiece.

The Senior and Intermediate Finals will be played as a double-header at Croke Park on Saturday December 10, with a time and venue to be confirmed for the Junior Final on Sunday December 11.

Holders Kilkerrin-Clonberne were the first side to book their place in finals weekend, after their brilliant 2-10 to 0-2 victory over Munster champions Ballymacarbry on Saturday. Ailish Morrissey scored 1-3 while Chloe Miskell also found the net in a dominant display from Willie Ward’s charges.

Donaghmoyne were similarly impressive on Sunday, in their 1-11 to 0-7 win over Kilmacud Crokes, which sets up a rematch of last year’s semi-final.

Cathriona McConnell shone brightest fresh off her wedding day, as she shot 0-7 while Lauren Garland blasted to the net for the five-time champions.

Longford Slashers booked their place in a first All-Ireland final when they beat Charlestown in their final four tie. Kate Shannon grabbed the all-important goal in a 1-11 to 0-10 success.

They will face Mullinahone in the final following their gripping 2-6 to 1-7 extra-time victory over Derrygonnelly. Lorraine O’Shea was the match-winner with her late late goal.

Naomh Abán cruised through to the junior decider. They got the better of Castleblayney Faughs on a 0-12 to 0-7 scoreline, with Allanagh Hoare and Grace Murphy sharing 0-6 between them.

Salthill-Knocknacarra are the other team through after they battled wind and rain to secure a precious 1-7 to 1-6 victory over O’Dwyers. Kate Thompson’s last-ditch effort secured the win for the hosts.
