SHANNON’s Chris Maguire will take charge of Sunday’s Munster club senior football final.

Kerry champions Austin Stacks meet Cork winners St Finbarr’s in Sunday’s decider which takes place at Semple Stadium, Thurles.

Éire Óg’s semi-final elimination at the hands of the Barrs has opened the opportunity for a Clare referee to officiate in the provincial final with Munster GAA chiefs handing the fixture to Maguire who is a current member of the provincial panel of referees.

Most recently in the county, Chris was the man in the middle for the U21A football final where Cill Cúil Gaels emerged victorious against Éire Óg. In the Munster series, he officiated the senior quarter-final meeting between The Nire of Waterford and Limerick’s Newcastlewest.

Maguire’s umpires for Sunday’s final include Manus O’Donnell, Frank Mee, Owen McCarthy and Cian Collopy.

Niall Quinn, a native of Miltown Malbay has been handed the reigns for Saturday’s McGrath Cup final. It will be his first time as whistler for the final of the pre-season provincial competition.

Meanwhile, Ennis’ Niall Malone will referee a competitive senior inter-county clash for the first time. The Éire Óg clubman has been appointed to the Co-Op Superstores Munster Senior Hurling Cup semi-final meeting between Limerick and Kerry scheduled for TUS Gaelic Grounds on Sunday at 2pm.
