Brigid's to find way past tricky Jude's assignment

DUBLIN SFC QUARTER-FINAL

ST JUDE'S v ST BRIGID'S

(O'Toole Park, Tomorrow, 2.30)

SKERRIES brought Brigid's to extra-time in Coolock. It was almost the shock of the season, writes Niall Scully.

It was one of the games of the championship. It was only a beautiful injury-time point from Philly Ryan that saved Brigid's.

Manager, Tony McEntee, will call for improvement here. He'll get it.

Jude's will present a challenge. This stage of the championship holds no fear for them.

They have had generous victories over Naomh MearnĂ³g and Whitehall. Brigid's knocked out Clontarf.

Kevin McManamon keeps on avoiding the clampers, while Mark Sweeney can also make a worthy donation.Paul Cunningham, Tom McKeown and Declan Donnelly bring much to the debate, and Brendan McManamon is still teaching the younger brother a trick or three.

Russell Park doesn't lack quality. John O'Loughlin, Emylyn Mulligan, Paddy Andrews and Kevin Bonner will keep busy and should just shade this one.

VERDICT: St Brigid's
