Kanturk, Michael Glaveys and Ardmore book All-Ireland final places in Croke Park next weekend

The rescheduled semi-final ties took place today.

CORK’S KANTURK, WATERFORD’S Ardmore and Roscommon’s Michael Glavey’s all booked their place in All-Ireland club finals next weekend in Croke Park after today’s semi-final action.

pjimage (1) Anthony Nash, Seamus Prendergast and Mattie Forde were all in All-Ireland club action today.

All three games were rescheduled after postponements last Sunday due to unplayable pitches.

In Newbridge, Kanturk set up an All-Ireland intermediate hurling final meeting with Kilkenny’s St Patrick’s Ballyraggett after a 3-13 to 0-12 success over Armagh’s Middletown.

Kanturk got off to an ideal start with an early goal from Alan O’Keeffe before Anthony Nash raised a second green flag with a strike from a penalty.

They were ahead 2-8 to 0-5 at half-time and Darren Browne’s long delivery yielded a third goal early in the second half with the Cork champions running out ten-point victors.

In Mullingar, Roscommon’s Michael Glaveys qualified for the All-Ireland intermediate football decider with a 0-13 to 0-11 success over Wexford’s Kilanerin-Ballyfad.

The sides were level at 0-6 apiece at the break before the Connacht kingpins pushed on in the second half with Tiernan Murphy’s late point providing the insurance score.

And in Navan, the spoils went to Waterford’s Ardmore in the All-Ireland junior hurling semi-final as they saw off Donegal’s Setanta by 4-12 to 0-13.
