Cusack Park in Mullingar has been selected as the venue for the AIB All-Ireland Club SFC semi-final between reigning champions Crossmaglen and St Brigid's.

It was also the venue for the 2007 meeting at the same stage between the teams which Crossmaglen won.

The tie has been fixed for 2.0 on Sunday, February 16 and will be followed by the second semi-final between Dr Crokes and Ballymun Kickhams which throws in at 4.0 in Semple Stadium.
