IF it keeps up any longer we may well have to dub it the never ending story, but for now the football community is simply enjoying the most marvellous tale of this season or any season for quite a number of years.

Kenmare and Castleknock's epic All Ireland semi-final moves to Croke Park this weekend and in the process gives more neturals – and presumably a whole lot of Finuge supporters – the chance to see these two clubs go toe-to-toe for the third time.

They'll face off at 17.30 on Saturday evening in their All Ireland Junior Club Championship semi-final second replay, which will act as a curtain raiser to Finuge's All Ireland Intermediate Club Championship Final against Tyrone kingpins Cookstown, Fr Rocks.

Fr Rocks were All Ireland champions at this grade just a couple of years ago – 2010, when they defeated Kerry's Spa in the final on a scoreline of 1-7 to 0-8. Finuge have, neverthless, been made slight favourites on 4/6 with paddypower.com.

Kenmare have been made the slightest of slight favourites by the booking firm for their game on 10/11.

Finuge, meanwhile, go into this game in a good place with regards to injuries. Manager John Colbert expects both Jack Corridan and Conor Galvin to be ready to feature following recent knee strains.

Raymond Galvin, who suffered concussion in the semi-final victory over Monasterevin, is also expected to feature.
