Kilmacud Crokes 5-19– Raharney (Westmeath)0-15
Kilmacud Crokes’ double-time march ceremonies via Navan this weekend, as the dual double baton is passed to the footballers.
Having actually secured full Dublin GAA supremacy by winning the Dublin Senior citizen Football and Dublin Senior Hurling Championships, Crokes are searching for rural pre-eminence and also are currently mid a two pronged Leinster Championship strike.
The hurlers played their component last weekend, crossing county lines to win
in Mullingar to progress to the LSC semi finals– and this Saturday sees the footballers take a trip to adversary territory where they fight to reach the same phase of the football matching. The south Dublin
side, with 4 Leinster Football Championships as well as 2 club All Irelands to their name, handle Wolfe Tones of Navan, who won only their 2nd ever Meath Senior citizen Football Championships in the initial week of November through a shock win over St Peter’s of Dunboyne in the decider. Pairc Taitleann, Navan plays host to the Dublin Meath encounter throw in at 1.30 pm. Triumph for Kilmacud will certainly see the Dublin SFC winners match the accomplishments to date of the club’s hurlers.
The Dublin SHC champs blew away Westmeath resistance in Mullingar last weekend break to
reach the Leinster Champion final four. The Stillorgan side excelled in little round competition to advance past Raharney as well as to within touching range of the decider.
A 5-19 to 0-15 thrashing established a last 4 clash with Laois champions Clough-Ballacolla after they beat Wexford champs Raparees in O’Moore Park on Saturday night.
