It's football all the way on Sunday, with past All-Ireland club winners St Vincent's, Corofin and St Brigid's among the teams in action.

In the Connacht semi-finals, St Brigid's travel to Carrick-on-Shannon to take on Leitrim champions Aughawillan. Two late goals helped Brigid’s claim their 15th Roscommon senior football championship against Padraig Pearses three weeks ago.

Aughawillan pipped Glencar/Manorhamilton in their county final on 9 October and no doubt will have the backing of a vocal home support in their quest to cause an upset. 

MacHale is the venue for the tasty meeting of Castlebar Mitchels and Corofin.

The sides met in last year's provincial final which the Mayo champions won by five points.

The Galway kingpins got the better of Salthill-Knocknacarra on 23 October in a game where Jason Leonard kicked nine points, while Castlebar will be playing their fifth game in over a month, though they weren't extended in their recent wins over Knockmore and Tourlestrane.

These are heady days indeed for the Slaughtneil club in Derry and and their footballers are just one step away from reaching an Ulster final. Tyrone's Killyclogher provide the opposition in the Athletic Grounds.

The other semi-final sees Maghery from Armagh take on Down's Kilcoo. After winning a first county title, Maghery's late surge against Ramor United has set up a date with opposition who knocked out Donegal's Glenswilly in the previous round. 

In Munster, Dr Crokes' pursuit of a seventh title sees them up against Tipperary's Loughmore-Castleiney, while Clonakilty is the venue of Cork's Carberry Rangers and The Nire from Waterford.

After winning the Dublin crown last weekend, St Vincent's travel to Dr Cullen Park to take on Palatine, who made a successful defence of the Carlow title against Rathvilly.   

O'Connor Park in Tullamore sees the meeting of Rhode and Simonstown Gaels. The latter, managed by Meath legend Colm O'Rourke, ran out convincing winners over Donaghmore-Ashbourne in the Royal decider and the RTÉ pundit is determined that they can now make their mark in the province.

"The record of Meath clubs is not good but we'll be worthy representatives of our county," he said.

The remaining Leinster quarter-finals see Louth's Sean O'Mahony's welcome Sarsfields from Kildare to the Gaelic Grounds in Drogheda, and surprise packets Mullinalaghta from Longford up against Westmeath's St Loman's.
