The IFL and JFL Finals take centre stage this Sunday.
Monaghan Electrical Intermediate Football League Final
Carrickmacross v Inniskeen, Sunday, 2.00, Corduff
Carrickmacross and Inniskeen contest the IFL Final in Corduff.
Championship winners and league table-toppers Carrick put their Ulster Club IFC exit behind them to oust Toome in their semi-final last Sunday. Having finished second in the league behind championship winners Carrick, before defeating Corduff, Inniskeen will join their near-neighbours in being promoted, although they will be keen to claim silverware. Carrick have hit four goals against the Grattans twice this year, including their IFC first-round meeting, while Inniskeen took the points in their most recent clash.
Inniskeen will be looking for big performances from Paul, Ronan, Dónal and Colm Meegan, Matthew McKenna and Gerard McArdle while Carrick should be able to call on Seán Downey, Stephen, Peter and Kevin O’Hanlon, Stephen Gollogly, Gary McEnaney and Aaron Lynch.
Eurotech Junior Football League Final
Currin v Seán McDermotts, Sunday, 2.00, Emyvale
Currin and Seán McDermotts meet again in the JFL Final in Emyvale.
Currin pipped the Seáns in the JFC Final and while the Scotshouse side were edged out of the Ulster Club by Tattyreagh, they bounced back in another high-scoring game last Sunday, where they were convincing winners over Clones. The championship victory earned Currin a quick return to Intermediate, while the Seáns are heading back up for the first time since 2014. The Threemilehouse side will go up thanks to topping the league table – having led the way throughout the year, helped by two wins over Sunday’s opponents – but they will be determined to win the Dr. Ward Cup for the third time since 2010.
The Seáns will be looking to Páraic McGuirk, Niall Kearns, Adam O’Driscoll, James Treanor and Brian McQuaid to lead the way, with Jack McCarron, Stephen Smyth, Dick Clerkin and Enda, Conor, Ciarán and Colm McCaffrey among the main men for Currin, who are bidding for a historic double.
Both Latton and Scotstown are assured of home advantage in the County Monaghan Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League semi-finals ahead of their last-round meeting, but Sunday will decide who their opponents will be.
