Waterford side gunning for revenge

In a repeat of the 2015 decider, Ballygunner and Na Piarsaigh collide against in the battle for Munster supremacy in club hurling.

A storming second-half display saw the Limerick side prevail two years ago. That win saw them saw them claim a third title in five seasons. 

Their opponents were last provincial kingpins in 2001.

Even without Shane Dowling, Na Piarsaigh were far too good for Cork's Blackrock in the semi-final. Ronan Lynch fired over 0-15 in an emphatic 2-26 to 0-10 victory.

Speaking in the Limerick Leader, David Breen, who is employed as a physio to the Wasps rugby side in the English Premiership, is determined to add more medals to his collection on the back of one All Ireland, three Munster and four Limerick titles.

"Maybe down the line it will hit you but right now we are of the mind set that if you have a team of certain quality then you have to turn that potential into medals. Look at the Kilkenny teams of a few years ago and they simply wanted to win everything. What we have are good, ambitious, hungry players," said Breen.

After claiming the Waterford title, Ballygunner edged out Thurles Sarsfields after extra time and then reeled in Sixmilebridge late on to claim their final berth. 

Club chairman Gerry Cullinan feels the side are now a more improved outfit from two seasons ago when both Mahony brothers were absent due to injury and suspension that day. 

Speaking in The Examiner, Cullinan said: "Without a doubt we’re a better team than two years ago. We didn’t have Pauric and Philip that day but we also didn’t have Wayne Hutchinson who was up in Dublin.

"Players like Ian Kenny and Eddie Hayden, it was their first year on the team and they’re more established now too. I just think it’s a more mature group that’s in with a great chance."

Leinster semis and Ulster replay

Reigning Leinster and All-Ireland champions Cuala welcome Wexford's St Martin's to Parnell Park as the hurling battle is down to the last four.

Many are expecting the Dalkey side to again push hard for more provincial and national silverware, though will be mindful of the fate that befell the hotly fancied St Vincent's last weekend as they came a cropper against Rathnew in the football.

Cuala's Colm Cronin in action against Dicksboro

With Con O'Callaghan in superb form, Cuala got the better of Dicksboro in the quarter-final.

After ending Oulart-the-Ballagh's dominance in Wexford, St Martin's will now look to lower the colours of the All-Ireland holders. In their ranks is the talented youngster Rory O'Connor, though a knee injury may threaten his participation in this decider. His cousin Patrick is suffering from a bulging disc in his back and has been unable to train.

2012 winners Kilcormac-Killoughey take on 2013 victors Mount Leinster Rangers in the other semi at O'Connor Park.

Looking ahead to this encounter, Stephen Byrne, who manages the Offaly outfit, told that improvement is required from the win over Castletown Geoghegan in the quarterts: "Oh certainly we will have to improve. We will have to go back to where we were in the county final against St. Rynaghs.

"Like at the end of the day, we can’t afford to let Mt Leinster Rangers picking up the breaks which is vital in the game at the moment and in the game that we play at the moment.

"Picking up the breaks and certainly the aerial battle will be crucial and we are well aware of the threat that Mt Leinster Rangers can bring to the table when it comes to that."

The Carlow champions will arrive in Tullamore on the back of a five-point victory over Laois' Camross. Five points scored in injury time eventually saw the Rangers advance.

Last Sunday's drawn Ulster SFC club semi-final between Cavan Gaels and Derrygonnelly Harps offered little in the way of quality, with extra time failing to separate the sides as they kicked 0-12 apiece. 

Slaughtneil await in the decider a week on Sunday if a winner emerges in Clones.
