TOMORROW (2.30 unless stated),

All-Ireland Club SFC semi-finals (extra-time if necessary)

Corofin (Galway) v St Galls (Antrim), Parnell Park, C Reilly (Meath), Live, TG4.

Experienced Corofin were caught out by Kilmacud Crokes of Dublin at the semi-final stage last year and face a battle-hardened side in Antrim's St Gall's.

Some of their numbers, including star forward CJ McGourty were in action for the club's hurlers in the defeat in the All-Ireland intermediate final and will be eager to make amends for that loss.

Verdict: St Gall's

Portlaoise (Laois) v Kilmurry-Ibrickane (Clare), Michael Duffy (Sligo), Gaelic Grounds, Deferred coverage TG4.

Talented Clare outfit Kilmurry-Ibrickane have made a habit of upsetting the odds, not least when they toppled Kerry side Kerins O'Rahillys in Munster. They enter this one as underdogs once more and victory here would represent their biggest coup.

Portlaoise cruised through Leinster with former Celtic man Paul Cahillane in excellent form. On paper, there should only be one winner though Micheal McDermott's men will make life difficult for Portlaoise.

Verdict: Portlaoise
