FOLLOWING their victory over Waterford outfit Butlerstown it the WIT Sportsgrounds on Sunday afternoon, Kildorrery will face Limerick outfit St Kierans in the Munster Club Junior Hurling Championship Final in Mallow in three weeks time November 9).
The Limerick kingpins defeated Kerry champions Kenmare in Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney on Saturday afternoon on a scoreline of 1-11 to 1-7. St Kierans made hard work of the victory over the Kingdom side, who hadn't played a
(Sunday, competitive game of hurling since July. Kenmare are back in provincial action this weekend, incidentally, against Kilmacthomas of Waterford in the Munster Club Junior Football Championship Quarter-final – the winner of which will face Duhallow and Cork champs Rockchapel.
Kenmare are the warmest of favourites for that game and if they do come through, as expected, they will welcome Rockchapel to Fitzgerald Stadium (their home pitch in Kenmare, Fr Breen Park, is unplayable) for the semifinal on Sunday, December 2. If Kilmacthomas pull off an upset the semi-final will be played at a Cork venue (Rockchapel persumably).
There's another Cork versus Kerry clash with the Munster Club Intermediate Football Hurling Championship Final between FInuge – home club of Kerry manager Eamonn FItzmaurice and All Star footballers Paul Galvin – and Cork Premier Intermediate champions St Vincents in Mallow on Sunday afternoon. The kick-off for that one is 2pm.
Patrons hoping to see either Fitzmaurice or Galvin in action for FInuge will be disappointed, however. Fitzmaurice suffered a broken jaw in the Kerry county final, while Galvin got a straight red card in Finuge's semi-final.
Boherbue's All Ireland Final with Thomas Davis, meanwhile, will take place on Saturday, December 1 (time and venue TBC).
