MEATH, DERRY, KERRY and Mayo clubs will contest next Sunday’s All-Ireland intermediate and junior club finals after today’s semi-final action.

Meath’s Trim and Derry’s Steelstown Brian Ógs will face off in the intermediate final, while Kerry’s Gneeveguilla and Mayo’s Kilmeena will contest the junior decider, both games are scheduled for Croke Park.

In the intermediate semi-finals, Trim saw off Roscommon’s St Faithleach’s by 1-11 to 0-11 at The Downs GAA club in Westmeath.

Aaron Lynch scored the only goal of the game in the second half, a strike that transpired to be a crucial one and was part of Lynch’s overall 1-5 haul. The Murtagh brothers, Ciaran and Diarmuid, shared 0-9 between them for the Roscommon champions but they fell short by three points.

Steelstown Brian Ógs claimed a notable success by 2-6 to 0-7 against Kerry’s Na Gaeil, the 2020 All-Ireland junior champions, in a clash played at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan in Mayo.

Ben McCarron’s first-half goal helped them lead 1-3 to 0-3 at half-time and he shot 1-4 overall, while Cahir McMonagle netted from the penalty spot late on to clinch victory for the winners.

Kerry seniors Jack Barry and Diarmuid O’Connor shot 0-2 apiece for Na Gaeil but their day was marred by the serious shoulder injury suffered by former AFL player Stefan Okunbor.

The junior games saw Gneeveguilla fire home five goals against Cavan’s Denn in Tullamore, running out winners by 5-8 to 1-12.

Gneeveguilla lost the All-Ireland intermediate club semi-final back in 2011 and will be hoping to maintain the trend of Kerry victors after 10 clubs from the Kingdom have won this championship.

Shane O’Sullivan scored two goals in the game in O’Connor Park for the winners, while Pa Warren, John O’Leary and Jack Cremin also netted for the East Kerry outfit.
