Semi-final pairings are now known for the penultimate stages of the Clare senior and intermediate football championships.
Reigning champions Kilmurry Ibrickane face Lissycasey in a repeat of last year’s semi-final clash. On that occasion, Aiden Moloney’s side had a point to spare over John Ryan’s charges winning 1-18 3-11.
Fresh from overcoming St Josephs Miltown in an impressive display, St Breckans now find themselves preparing for a last four tie with Éire Óg who sealed their place in the semi-finals for the first time since 2014 by defeating Ennistymon on Saturday/.
Intermediate favourites Corofin and Kildysart have avoided each other in the semi-finals, the North Clare side will play O’Currys while the men from the Estuary way must overcome Kilfenora in order to make the county decider.
Having come up short in the 2020 Junior A final which was played this July, Ballyvaughan/Fanore have an opportunity to atone for that loss when they meet Ennistymon in the upcoming decider.
