We'll meet again

Clooney-Quin's Peter Duggan with his levelling score

For the second year running, the Clare hurling final goes to a replay. Underdogs Clooney-Quin held the initiative for much of the drawn game. They were never headed until injury-time when Clare senior Seadna Morey threatened to deflate their plucky display with a leading point for Sixmilebridge.

However, Clooney-Quin managed to deservedly earn a second bite of the cherry when captain Fergal Lynch earned a last gasp free for championship top scorer Peter Duggan (2-66 in six matches) to equalise for the ninth and final time in the 62nd minute.

It looked for long stages of the Cork football final that Nemo Rangers were on their way to victory, when leading St Finbarr's by eight points and then seven at various stages during last weekend's showdown on Leeside.

Luke Connolly, Paddy Gumley, Paul Kerrigan, Barry O’Driscoll and Jack Horgan were all showing well for Nemo. However, Finbarr's stick gamely to their task and with Ian Maguire eventually getting a grip around midfield, they set about eroding the deficit.

A trio of points late on from Stephen Sherlock ensured another day out for the Barrs, who no doubt will be hoping to make a better start in the replay.

A fortnight ago, Éire Óg and Rathvilly played out a 0-12 to 1-09 stalemate in the Carlow football final. Cormac Mullins' late point for Óg was just reward for their persistance in a game where the 26-times champions never led.

The concession of scoreable frees by Rathvilly did undermine much of their good work in the drawn encounter, something they'll be mindful of as they seek a first title since 2014.

Quick turnaround for Mitchels

After defeating Garrymore 2-14 to 0-12 on Wednesday evening, Castlebar Mitchels don't have much time to prepare for their Mayo football showdown with Ballintubber. Goals from Danny Kirby and Neil Douglas set Mitchels on their way, and with Barry Moran excelling in midfield, the reigning champions were well worth their victory ahead of their quest for a fourth title in five years.

Sunday's pairing is a repeat of the 2014 decider won by Ballintubber. Alan Dillon featured for the latter back then and is now looking for a fourth winner's medal.

"It’s great to be back into a County Final, and there’ll be a great buzz around Ballintubber this week," Dillon told The Mayo News.

"It would be unbelievable [to win it] because we’ve missed out in the last few years, we’ve been very disappointed with our performances in the knock-out stages.

"Last year we were beaten by Castlebar and the year before by Breaffy so we just want to go into next week’s final and put in a big performance.

"Hopefully that will be good enough, against whoever we’re playing.

"Castlebar have been the form team for the last three or four years in Mayo and they’ve a huge panel, a huge squad," he added. "Full credit to Garrymore they asked questions of Castlebar, but we’ll concentrate on ourselves."

In neigbouring Roscommon, Roscommon Gaels and St Brigid's will lock horns at the Hyde.

Brigid's, the 2013 All-Ireland winners, are seeking a 16th title. Yet word from the county is that the Gaels will provide stiff opposition as they themselves eye a first county success since 2004.

Brigid's form this season has been patchy, but with Ian and Senan Kilbride, Niall McInerney, Brian Stack and Peter Domican in their ranks, Frankie Dolan's charges may have enough to reign supreme again.

In the Kingdom, Dr Crokes have their sights on a 12th football crown, with South Kerry their opponents in Tralee.

Colm Cooper was again the star for the All-Ireland champions as they crushed West Kerry 5-13 to 0-14 in the sem-final.

Cooper, shortly after half-time, spotted the West Kerry defenders arguing with the referee and so took his chance to rifle a free into the top corner of the net.

South Kerry had one point to spare over Kerins O'Rahilly's in the other semi. Bryan Sheehan's three points from play and another from Mark Griffin late on proved crucial in a 0-12 to 1-08 victory.

South Kerry, champions in 2015, are striving to win the Bishop Moynihan Cup for an 11th time.

Elsewhere in football, 2015 champions Newcastle West take on Adare, while in Sligo Eamonn O'Hara's Tourlestrane will be aiming to make it back-to-back wins when they take on 2010 winners Eastern Harps at Markievicz Park.  

Walsh Park is the venue as  Ballygunner aim for a hurling four-timer in Waterford. Opposing them will be De La Salle. It's a repeat of the 2010 final which the latter won comfortably to give them a third county title.

Ballygunner go in search of win number 16, a week on from nearly coming a cropper against last year's intermediate champions Lismore in the semi-final. Pauric Mahony and Brian O'Sullivan led the scoring charge as the holders prevailed on a 0-18 to 1-13 scoreline. 

De La Salle only had a point to spare as they edged out Passage by 1-13 to 3-06 in their last-four clash. 

As well as the football final replay at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, the hurling decider is also down for decision on a day the redeveloped venue is officially opened. Blackrock go in search of a 33rd success and a first since 2002.

Standing in their way are the divisional side Imokilly, who twice lifted the Seán Óg Murphy Cup back in 1997 and '96. The pair last met in the final in 2001 with Blackrock, captain ed by Wayne Sherlock running out 4-08 to 2-07 winners. 

Looking ahead to Sunday's encounter, former Rock great Jimmy Brohan is delighted they are back again on the final stage.

Speaking in the Cork Evening Echo he said: ""It’s great altogether, the club badly needs success and we have had that at underage level in the past number of years, at U21 too.

"I believe now that the players on those teams and that are playing next Sunday are showing that they are maturing. I think that was shown the last day against Na Piarsaigh. They hit us with two fast goals after half-time and if that had happened two or three years ago we would have collapsed.

"That didn’t happen this time and they came back and outscored Na Piarsaigh in the final quarter by nine points to three. That was a great sign that they are maturing." 

Speaking in the same publication, Imokilly boss Fergal Condon was pleased with the tally of 4-17 his side chalked up in their semi-final replay win over Sarsfields.

"Absolutely delighted, we put up 4-17 tonight and that is very good scoring. I thought that our big fellows were very good tonight and that made a huge difference.

"Seamie Harnedy, Paudie, Brian Lawton, they were outstanding but it was a team effort and we are delighted to be looking forward now to a county final next Sunday.

"We did concede a few poor goals again but I suppose the end result is everything and we were in a strong position there at the end and I think that we deserved the win.

"You could see the depth in our bench there when we brought in a few lads. We have been able to do that all season and the squad is very important."

In Wexford, holders Oulart-The Ballagh go in search of title number 14 when they line up against a St Martin's side, who have twice (1999 & '08) landed county honours. It's a repeat of the 2015 final which Oulart comfortably won on a 2-15 to 0-13 scoreline.
