TG4 Senior Championship – All Ireland Final

TG4 Senior Championship – All Ireland Final


Tyrone v Dublin, Croke Park (Dublin), 4.00, (K Delahunty)



Tyrone’s progress to this year’s All Ireland Final has been, for many people, the story of this year’s TG4 Senior Championship. They have played eight games through Ulster and the back door and on the way have dethroned reigning champions Cork. This progress has not been achieved by closing down the hatches either as Tyrone play a lovely brand of attacking football. In truth they possess the most lethal forward line and Dublin’s chances will hinge on whether or not the likes of Begley, Connolly and Donnelly can be stopped. For Dublin, their progress has been steady, rather than spectacular but every time a question has been asked they have come up trumps. A one point defeat last year to Cork will surely be on their minds, but they can’t take their eyes off the threat posed by Tyrone who are playing the better football of the two sides. But Dublin have been here before and that extra experience should stand to them. A tentative nod towards Gerry McGill and his charges to bring a first ever title back to the capital.

TG4 Intermediate Championship – All Ireland Final


Waterford v Donegal, Croke Park (Dublin), 2.00, (D McEnery)

The Division 2 League Champions Donegal facing the Division 3 League Runners Up Waterford – it should be Donegal’s to lose but Waterford have blazed a trail through the group stages of the Championship notching up tallies of 5-20, 2-17, 8-23 and 3-10. That was before they put red hot favourites Cavan to the sword in the All Ireland Semi Final. Sisters Michelle and Sinead Ryan have been their scorers in chief. This good form will not be lost on Donegal however and Michael Naughton will have his homework done. 12 months ago Donegal had been relegated from Division 1 and relegated from the Senior Championship. They are back in Division 1 at the first time of asking. 60 minutes to go before the perfect comeback is complete.

WATERFORD: A Jordan, N Dunphy, G Enright, L Hogan, L Ryan, M Foley (c), M Wall, M McGrath, E Power, G Keneally, M Ryan, L Wall, M Delahunty, S Ryan, A Wall

DONEGAL: R McClafferty, D Toner, O McCafferty, K Wilson, C Hegarty, M Herron, T McCafferty, A McDonnell (c), K Guthrie, G Houston, N Hegarty, K Feeney, E Ward, Y McMonigle, G McLaughlin


TG4 Junior Championship – All Ireland Final


Louth v Limerick, Croke Park (Dublin), 12.00, (J Niland)

Both of these sides had reasonable league campaigns before exploding to life in the Championship. Limerick were untouchable in the group stages and while Wexford offered them a fright or two in the All-Ireland Semi Final, they still ran out seven point winners. Louth haven’t had it all their own way thus far but have made it this point on merit with a number of narrow hard fought wins. They have also shown an eye for goal in quite a few of their matches. Karen Flood has been pulling the strings for Louth at 11, while for Limerick Dymphna O’Brien has been their main threat. The ability to contain both Flood and O’Brien might just determine the outcome of this match. Limerick though to prevail.

LOUTH: C Breen, A McGee, S Quinn, G Lynch (c), P Marmion, AM Lynch, S McDonald, O Kirk, R Heeney, S Byrne, K Flood, S Lynch, M Reid, AM Murphy, C Page

LIMERICK: C Murphy, M O’Brien, S Healy, A Neary, E McGuire, Y Moynihan, P Donnelly, E Enright, S Larkin (c), J Garvey, M Flanagan, C Reidy, J O’Gorman, D O’Brien, MC Curtin
