St Jude’s took another big-name scalp to set up a Dublin Senior Football Championship final meeting with Kilmacud Crokes.
Having beaten Ballymun Kickhams in the quarter-final, Jude's beat St Vincent’s 2-11 to 0-08 in the last four at Parnell Park.
Vins started without Diarmuid Connolly, available for his second championship match having returned from a summer playing in Boston, and they rushed into a four-point lead.
There was an eight-point swing by half-time though, Padraic Clarke fisting a goal after 24 minutes to help give Jude’s a 1-06 to 0-05 lead at the break.
Connolly and Mayo’s Enda Varley were introduced as half-time substitutes for the Marino men, but it didn’t have the desired affect and they fell further behind thanks to Seamus Ryan’s goal.
Kilmacud beat Ballyboden St Enda's in the first semi-final on Saturday.
In Kerry, Dr Crokes will have to wait to find out who they will play in the senior football final after Dingle forced a semi-final replay with East Kerry.
In the first of the day’s games in the Kingdom, Dingle’s county defender Tom O’Sullivan scored the levelling point after 66 minutes, with four minutes of stoppage time at the end of the game having been announced. The game ended 1-13 to 2-10.
It was quite a turnaround for Dingle, considering they lost to the divisional side a few weeks ago by 17 points.
Both sides finished this one with 14 men, Paul Devane of Dingle and Shane McSweeney of East Kerry both getting their marching orders shortly before the break.
David Clifford was the star of the show for East Kerry, hitting 2-04, all but a point coming from play, while his Kerry team mate Paul Geaney notched 0-06, five frees for Dingle.
Later at Austin Stacks Park Dr Crokes won a battle of the club heavyweights, the Killarney men beating their Tralee rivals Kerins O'Rahilly's with a bit to spare – 2-19 to 2-10.
The sides were level at the break, 2-05 to 0-11, Gavin O’Brien raising both green flags, but a pair of second half goals from Jordan Kiely saw the 2017 All-Ireland champions through to another county final.
In the Limerick Senior Hurling Championship, Na Piarsaigh will take on Doon in the final.
In the first game at the Gaelic Grounds, wing-back Denis Moloney scored an injury-time winner to see Doon past Patrickswell on a 2-17 to 0-22 scoreline.
Na Pairsaigh, All-Ireland champions in 2016 and beaten in this year’s final by Cuala, are back in another decider having beaten Kilmallock 2-19 to 2-15.
Adrian Breen scored 2-01 for the winners, with Shane Dowling, super-sub in Limerick’s All-Ireland final win over Galway in August, chipping in with 0-07, two from play.
