Kilmacud Crokes will welcome the decision by the Leinster Council a few weeks back to stage the provincial club football championship semi-finals in Croke Park, their game with Portarlington, the bolters in the east this year, fixed for Saturday week at 5pm.

At least, as Crokes manager Robbie Brennan wryly observed after his side’s four-point win over Meath champions Wolfe Tones on Sunday, some of his younger players who got lost on the short trip down the M3 to Navan will know their way across the city to a venue they are familiar with as supporters of the Dublin football team!
