Reigning champions Mourneabbey (Cork) will contest the All-Ireland Ladies Senior Club final for the third season in a row when they face Kilkerrin-Clonberne (Galway) this Saturday in the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick.
Mourneabbey, currently managed by Tipperary's 2019 TG4 All-Ireland winning boss, Shane Ronayne, had lost finals in 2014, 2015 and 2017 before finally getting over the line when seeing off Dublin outfit Foxrock-Cabinteely in the final last year.
The Cork outfit overcame Donaghmoyne 2-13 to 1-10 in their semi-final thanks largely to two first half-goals from Laura Fitzgerald and Doireann O'Sullivan.
In this year's showpiece decider they will face first-time finalists Kilkerrin-Clonberne after they overpowered Foxrock-Cabinteely 5-12 to 2-10 in the second semi-final.

The teams are no strangers to each other having clashed at the All-Ireland semi-final stage in 2015 and 2018, with Mourneabbey winning both.
Mourneabbey will be able to call upon the services of 2017 TG4 Senior Players' Player of the Year Noelle Healy, a key member of the Dublin teams that have won the last three TG4 All-Ireland Senior titles. While at full-back they will have Aisling Costello who is the sister of current Galway senior footballer, Shane Walsh.
Kilkerrin-Clonberne, who have newly-crowned TG4 All Stars Nicola and Louise Ward, who are twin sisters, in their ranks. They can also call upon the three Noone sisters, Hannah, Eva and Lynsey, who have been winning regularly at underage level with Galway.
Lisa Murphy, the Galway goalkeeper and 2019 All Star nominee will be between the sticks for Kilkerrin-Clonberne, while evergreen midfielder Annette Clarke was the county's All-Ireland winning captain in 2004.
The Connacht side will have the weight of history on their shoulders as they become the first Galway club since 1990 to contest the All-Ireland Ladies Senior Club Football Championship final. On that occasion St Grellan's lost to Ballymacarbry (Waterford).
