RTE preview for Saturdays Dublin SFC semi finals.

Ballyboden St Endas v St Judes and Kilmacud Crokes v Thomas Davis (Throw-ins 5.15pm and 7.00pm). Evanne Ní Chuilinn presents coverage of the Dublin Senior Football Championship semi-finals from Parnell Park. A new champion will be crowned this year, as holders St Vincents were eliminated by St Judes in the quarter-finals at Parnell Park, and all four of the remaining sides will fancy their chances of prevailing.

A new champion will be crowned this year

Pretty harsh on Kilmacud Crokes who are still in it.

Bit of a stinker from whoever did the write-up: "A new champion will be crowned this year, as holders St Vincents were eliminated...". St Vincent's won it it 2016 and 2017; Crokes won it last year.

Looking like dunloy will win the Ulster hurling, they are a seriously powerful outfit and I can really see them competing in all Ireland.

Austin Stacks. They won the senior club championship in April.

Round 3 in the Donegal senior club championship this evening. Both teams are so evenly balanced. It could come down to whichever team has recovered better after last Sunday's exertions. Odhran McFadden-Ferry is likely to come back in for Gaoth Dobhair. He'll bring a lot of energy to them. Brick Molloy might also be pushing for a start with Glenties having made a notable contribution when introduced last time out.

Hopefully a winner will be decided this evening. There is the possibility that yet another replay will be needed on Saturday. This would then mean the winner would be in action less than 24 hours later in Ulster.

Galway Hurling County Final on Sunday.

St Thomas's v Liam Mellows

Repeat of last years final that St Thomas's won. No dominant team this year in Galway so this match should be a toss up. I'd give the slightest edge to St Thomas's.

Congratulations to the Corofin footballers winning the Galway County Final for the 7th time in a row. Incredible achievement. Good luck against the Mayo champs on Sunday.

Hats off to Naomh Conaill. Getting themselves up again to win in Ulster after 3 epic finals. Fantastic effort. I didn't give them a hope I have to be honest.

Dunloy yesterday demonstrated EVERYTHING that is is wrong with Gaelic Games in Antrim. They have better, more talented hurlers than Slaughtneil BUT they don't have what the Derry men have. They don't have the heart, fight, stomach and belief that gets you over the line. From start to finish Dunloy were bullied, controlled and dominated by Slaughtneil and the North Antrim men couldn't handle it. As a Belfast Gael I don't want to hear any more nonsense about the big, hard tough North Antrim men. Yesterday Dunloy were pussycats.

Congratulations to St Thomas's on winning the Galway Hurling County Final on Sunday. Two in a row. Great achievement. They play the Munster Champions next.

Templenoe of Kerry will be strong favourites for the Intermediate Football. However do not be surprised if Mattock Rangers from Louth end up as Champions, great club, great team, great football people around Collon.

Fairytale stuff by Borris-Ileigh in making the Munster club final. They left down an early marker by beating Clonoulty. I thought Kilruane or Kiladangan would win tipp but in fairness to Borris they beat the two of them.


Ballygunner look like men on a mission, they look very impressive and should have too much for Borris. St Thomas' will be very keen to get back to Croke Park. Well done to Slaughtneil and Michael McMullan, serious effort winning 3 out of 4 Ulster titles.

The Kerry Intermediate Champions should always be favourites for the All-Ireland.

8th/9th best club team in a county as strong as Kerry gotta be heavy favourites for me.

Plus Templenoe really look strong.

Tis actually Michael McShane. The article on HS had the wrong name yesterday though I see it has since been corrected. He's a Ballycastle (Antrim) man.
