Previews: Semi-final slots on offer in 2023 All-Ireland Club Championship semi-finals

CORK clubs O’Donovan Rossa and Glanmire face trips to Britain as they aim to secure places in the 2023 All-Ireland Club Championship semi-finals.

In the Junior grade, O’Donovan Rossa visit the Clydebank Community Sports Hub for an 11.30am start on Saturday morning as they take on hosts Glasgow Gaels, with a semi-final against Wexford outfit Gusserane the prize for the winners.

And in the Intermediate competition, Glanmire, the 2018 All-Ireland Junior champions, are in London for a 12pm throw-in against Tir Chonaill Gaels.

The winner of this quarter-final will face Meath’s Na Fianna in the last four.

Both of Saturday’s quarter-finals will be live-streamed on the LGFA’s online portal:

It’s an early start for Cork’s O’Donovan Rossa for what is a tricky All-Ireland Junior Club Championship quarter-final.

Glasgow Gaels, who possess a real scoring threat, impressed on their trip to Maastricht in the preliminary round of the All-Ireland series, when they enjoyed a comfortable victory over An Craobh Rua of Belgium.

Now Glasgow Gaels have home advantage in Clydebank for the visit of O’Donovan Rossa, who defeated Dohenys in an all-West Cork county final.

Not content with that, O’Donovan Rossa saw off Tipperary’s Loughmore-Castleiney, Clare’s Newmarket-on-Fergus and Clounmacon/Moyvane of Kerry to land the Munster title.

With the likes of Éabha O’Donovan, Laura O’Mahony and Fionnuala O’Driscoll excelling in attack, O’Donovan Rossa are potent, too, but this is a fixture that requires full attention.

The winners will have a quick turnaround ahead of an All-Ireland semi-final against Wexford and Leinster champions, Gusserane.

O’Donovan Rossa will have home advantage for a potential last-four clash on Saturday December 2 if they can get the job done in Scotland, while Glasgow Gaels would make the trip to Wexford should they prevail at the quarter-final stage.

Glasgow Gaels: M Campion; C Thompson, L McCullough, E Coultas (capt.); G Dart-O’Flynn, A Carberry, A.M. Monaghan; K Norgrove, R Dunne; L Millett, E Cullen-Darcy, O Donnelly; O Walsh, E Brennan, J Treacy.

O’Donovan Rossa: C Fitzgerald; M Donnellan, E McCarthy; A Tobin, F Leonard, S Hurley; L Harte (capt.), L O’Mahony; T Murphy, J Beechinor, E Hurley; K O’Connell; É O’Donovan, K O’Donovan, F O’Driscoll. All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship quarter-final

2023 has already been a brilliant year for London outfit Tir Chonaill Gaels and they’ll aim for their biggest scalp yet on Saturday.

TCG are fresh from their first ever Britain Intermediate championship win after defeating Dunedin Connolly’s 1-9 to 1-6, following on from a maiden London success.

Glanmire, who were 2018 All-Ireland Junior champions, make the trip from Cork and they’ll need to be fully tuned in for the challenge that awaits.

Glanmire defeated Naomh Abán in the Cork Final before they landed the Munster title with a gritty Final victory over Limerick opponents Monagea, following on from a win against Tipperary’s Boherlahan-Dualla at the semi-final stage.

Glanmire have plenty of inter-county experience in their ranks, including the likes of club captain Ellen Twomey and Abbie O’Mahoney, who have been in excellent form.

The winners of this one will be back in action on Sunday December 3 in the All-Ireland semi-final.

If Glanmire win, they’ll have home advantage against Meath and Leinster champions, Na Fianna, while Tir Chonaill Gaels will travel to face Na Fianna if they get the better of Glanmire.

Tir Chonaill Gaels: E Mooney; S Friel, E Daly, U Hourihane; A Maguire, E Alcorn, D Doherty (capt.); R Considine, B Gallagher; N Nugent, M Jones, R McLaughlin; A Fagan, L Walsh, A O’Neill.

Glanmire: A Carey; C Murphy, M Barry, K O’Connor; C O’Donovan, Ellen Twomey (capt.), A Fitzgerald; A O’Mahony, E Murphy; A McCarthy, N McAllen, A McCarthy; Evie Twomey, O Roche, M Dullea. All Ireland Club Championship Semi-Finals
