AIB ALL-IRELAND CLUB SHC SEMI-FINALS
BALLYHALE SHAMROCKS (Kilkenny) v GORT (Galway)
Tullamore: 2.0, live TG4, J Ryan (Tipperary)
MOVING the match from a frozen Thurles may alter the atmosphere but not, we suspect, the result. Ballyhale, shaken and stirred by their extra-time escape to victory over Kilcormac/Killoughey, should have too much firepower for the conquerors of Portumna.
ODDS: Ballyhale 1/4, Draw 10/1, Gort 7/2.
KILMALLOCK (Limerick) v PORTAFERRY (Down)
Mullingar: 2.0, deferred TG4, J Keenan (Wicklow)
THE good news for Portaferry? Mullingar is a lot closer than Thurles. The bad news? Kilmallock, having graduated with honours from a thrilling Munster campaign, will surely march on to Croker on March 17.
ODDS: Kilmallock 1/10, Draw 14/1, Portaferry 13/2.

Allianz Football League Division 1
DERRY v KERRY
Celtic Park: 2.0, J McQuillan (Cavan)
A LONG and desperately tricky engagement for a Kerry team playing catch-up; but we've an inkling that, even understrength, they might sneak it.
ODDS: Derry evens, Draw 15/2, Kerry 11/10.
MAYO v TYRONE
Elverys MacHale Park: 2.0, live TG4, E Kinsella (Laois).
CRISIS? What crisis? Facing Mayo away should tell us whether the lights going out against Monaghan was merely a Tyrone hiccup or heralded something worse.
ODDS: Mayo 4/9, Draw 15/2, Tyrone 5/2. VERDICT: Mayo
MONAGHAN v CORK
Castleblayney: 2.0, deferred TG4, F Kelly (Longford).
CORK showed true grit against an understrength Dublin but Monaghan, away, looks a daunting ask.
Odds: Monaghan 4/5, Draw 15/2, Cork 11/8. Verdict: Monaghan

Mullingar: 2.0, C Reilly (Meath).
