Dublin out to avenge Donegal defeat
Dublin were stung by two late goals when they met Donegal in the NFL Division 1 semi-finals in March, the Ulster side coming from behind to snatch a dramatic win.
Dublin have been in impressive form since, however, winning the Leinster Championship before storming through the group stages of the All-Ireland series.
Donegal lost out to Meath in the NFL Division 1 final before suffering defeat to Armagh in the Ulster decider. They beat Waterford narrowly in the group stages before losing to Cork – but had enough done to book a knockout slot.
Dublin make two changes to the side that beat Mayo last time out, with Sinéad Goldrick and Kate McDaid coming in for Orlagh Nolan and Lauren Magee.
There are also two changes to the Donegal side that lost out to Cork, with Susanne White and Deirdre Foley replacing Niamh Boyle and Shauna McFadden.
The winners of this one will face Galway or Meath in the Croke Park semi-final on 16 July.
Dublin: C Trant; J Tobin, L Caffrey, N Collins; A Kane, M Byrne, S Goldrick; J Dunne, K McDaid; N Owens, C Rowe (c), K Sullivan; H Tyrrell, C O’Connor, S Aherne.
Donegal: R McCafferty; N Carr, E McGinley, T Kennedy; S Twohig, Nicole McLaughlin, A Boyle Carr; K Herron, Niamh McLaughlin (c); Y Bonner, N Hegarty, S White; D Foley, K Guthrie, G McLaughlin.
Contenders Cork face Mayo
Cork will surely be happy that they’re flying nicely below the radar and have reached the quarter-finals with the minimum of fuss – and with less than usual talk about their prospects.
The Leesiders are still one of the leading contenders to lift the Brendan Martin Cup at the end of the month, and they’ve already banked silverware in the form of the Munster Championship.
They beat Donegal and Waterford in the group stages and now face a Mayo side that finished second behind Dublin in their pool.
These counties were beaten semi-finalists last year but the 2022 odyssey will end a round earlier for one of them.
There’s one change to the Mayo team that lost to Dublin for this one, with Ciara Whyte coming in for Ciara Needham.
On the Cork team, there’s also one change in personnel, as Ashling Hutchings replaces Meabh Cahalane.
Armagh or Kerry await the winners in the last four at Croke Park on 16 July.
Cork: M O’Sullivan; R Phelan, E Meaney, A Hutchings; M Duggan, M O’Callaghan (c), L O’Mahony; S Leahy, B O’Sullivan; E Cleary, C O’Sullivan, L Coppinger; Á O’Sullivan, D O’Sullivan, O Finn.
Mayo: A Tarpey; S El Massry, R Flynn, D Caldwell; T O’Connor, F McHale, K Sullivan (c); S Cafferky, A Geraghty; S Howley, S Walsh, S Mulvihill; L Cafferky, C Whyte, T Needham.
In-form Kerry tackle Armagh
Armagh finished second behind Meath in their pool, which leaves them on the opposite side of the draw to Dublin, Donegal, Galway and Meath.
Kerry, meanwhile, are one of the form teams in the country. They followed up that NFL Division 2 final win with a march to a Munster final, followed by impressive victories over Galway and Westmeath in the group stages of the All-Ireland series.
The Kingdom have made five changes in personnel to the team that beat Westmeath comfortably, with Julie Sullivan, Aishling O’Connell, Ciara Murphy, Lorraine Scanlon and Cáit Lynch all earning starts.
Armagh have made two changes to the side that eased to victory over Monaghan, with Eve Lavery and Aoife McCoy coming in for Fionnuala McKenna and Aoife Lennon.
Armagh: A Carr; S Grey, C McCambridge, C Towe; N Marley, L McConville, G Ferguson; B Mackin, C O’Hanlon; E Lavery, N Coleman, C Marley; A Mackin, A McCoy, K Mallon (c).
Kerry: C Butler; J O’Sullivan, K Cronin, E Lynch; A O’Connell, E Costello, C Murphy; L Scanlon, C Lynch; N Carmody, S O’Shea, A Galvin (c); K Brosnan, D O’Leary, L Ní Mhuircheartaigh.
Galway face big test against Meath
Reigning champions Meath put their title on the line against Galway in Tullamore.
The Royals beat Monaghan and drew with Armagh to progress to the quarter-finals as table-toppers, as Galway finished second behind Kerry to advance.
Victory over Westmeath will have come as a boost to the Connacht champions after their loss to Kerry but they now face a huge test against Meath.
The holders have made two changes to the team that drew with Armagh in their last outing, as captain Shauna Ennis and Kelsey Nesbitt are back in the team.
For Galway, there’s one change to the team that accounted for Westmeath, as Hannah Noone comes in for her sister, Lynsey.
Galway: A Griffin; H Noone, S Ní Loingsigh (c), E Gavin; S Molloy, N Ward, K Geraghty; S Divilly, L Ward; L Coen, E Noone, C Cooney; A Morrissey, O Divilly, T Leonard.
Meath: M McGuirk; S Ennis (c), MK Lynch, O Duff; A Leahy, E Troy, A Cleary; M O’Shaughnessy, O Lally; M Thynne, E Duggan, K Nesbitt; V Wall, S Grimes, N O’Sullivan.
Monaghan and Waterford in relegation battle
Twenty-five years ago, it was Monaghan and Waterford who would contest a Senior All-Ireland final.
Now, these two proud footballing counties face a battle to avoid relegation.
On form, the Déise will start as favourites but Monaghan won’t go down without a fight.
They have made three changes to the team that lost to Armagh, with Laura Walsh, Lauren Garland and captain Muireann Atkinson all starting.
Waterford are unchanged from the team that lost to Cork.
Monaghan: O Kelly; S Brady, A McCarey, C Brennan; C Jones, R Courtney, A Burns; L Walsh, L Jones; L Carey, C Treanor, A Garland; L Garland, M Atkinson (c), H Sherlock.
Waterford: K O’Hanlon; Kate McGrath, M Dunford, H Power; R Casey, L Mulcahy, Karen McGrath (c); E Murray, A O’Neill; L McGregor, K Hogan, M Wall; K Murray, A Wall, A Fitzgerald.
Intermediate Championship semi-finals
Laois are genuine contenders for the Mary Quinn Memorial Cup but they come up against a Clare side growing in confidence.
The Leinster side have been superb to date in the All-Ireland Intermediate series, scoring for fun and winning all of their games.
The notable victory was achieved over Tyrone in the group stages and Erone Fitzpatrick earned The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for June.
The Banner were impressive in their quarter-final victory over Longford and will present a huge test for Laois.
Clare: A Lenihan; E O’Gorman, T Kelly, G Harvey; S Ní Chonaill, L Ryan, O Devitt (c); A Reidy, C Moloney; A Sexton, G Nolan, R Considine; F Marrinan, N O’Dea, C Callinan.
Laois: E Barry; A Potts, A Donoher, A Kelly (c); R Williams, E Healy, C Dunne; A Healy, J Moore; E Galvin, L.M. Maher, E Fitzpatrick; M Nerney, E Lawlor, S.A. Fitzgerald.
A repeat of the NFL Division 3 final pits Wexford against Roscommon for a place at Croke Park on 31 July.
Roscommon won a close encounter by just a single point on that occasion and the scene is now set for what could be an equally close game.
Roscommon defeated Louth at the quarter-final stage to reach the last four, as Wexford scored a hugely impressive five-point victory over Tyrone.
Wexford were beaten finalists at Croke Park last year and appear determined to go one step better this time.
Wexford: M.R. Kelly; S Harding Kenny, A Halligan, S Murphy; O Kehoe, R Murphy (c), C Donnelly; K Kearney, C Banville; S Hamilton, C Murray, E O’Brien; T Doyle, A Murphy, A Wilson.
Roscommon: H Cummins; S Kenny, R Fitzmaurice, R Brady; R Wynne, A MacAuliffe, N Feeney; L O’Rourke, L Fleming (c); M McHugh, J Higgins, F Tully; A Hanly, N McHugh, C Conway.
Junior Championship semi-finals
Antrim and Carlow met twice in the 2021 Championship – with both games going all the way to extra-time.
Antrim won out on both occasions, including at the semi-final stage, and this one could go the distance again.
These are two evenly-matched teams and even without the services of injured 2021 top-scorer Clíodhna Ní Shé, Carlow have been moving well.
Antrim were runners-up in 2021 and the Saffrons will be desperate to get back to Croke Park again.
Antrim: A McCann; D Coleman, A McFarland, N McIntosh; M Mulholland, S Tennyson, S O’Neill; C Emerson, Á Tubridy; G McLaughlin, C Carey (c), M O’Neill; B Devlin, O Prenter, C Taggart.
Carlow: N Hanley; N Murphy, O Fitzpatrick, A Dowling; R Bermingham (c), E Atkinson, N Mohan; E Ware, R Bailey; O Hickey, A Gilmartin, R Sawyer; S Doyle, S Hayden, N Kelly.
Fermanagh were crowned Junior champions in 2020 while Limerick, who last won the All-Ireland Junior Championship in 2018, were beaten semi-finalists against Wicklow last year.
Indeed, on their way to glory in 2020, these sides met at the semi-final stage, with Fermanagh coming out on top.
Limerick lost out to Antrim but they recovered to beat New York and that was good enough for second place in Group B.
In Group A, Fermanagh finished on top of the pile on scoring difference, and they were particularly impressive in victory over London.
Fermanagh: R Gleeson; E Keenan, M McGloin (c), S McQuade; N McManus, S McCarville, C Bogue; B Bannon, A O’Brien; E Maguire, B Bogue, S Britton; C McElroy, E Smyth, L Grew.
Limerick: S Hennessy; K Reidy, A Quaid, S O’Sullivan; M MacNamara, N Ryan, Á McGrath; R Ambrose (c), L Coughlan; K Heelan, R Delee, C Mee; I Kennelly, M Kavanagh, C Davis.
