We preview the AIB GAA Club Camogie championship semi finals
Eight sides are just 60 minutes away from Croke Park
The dream of playing in an All-Ireland final is about to become a reality for four sides left in this year's AIB-Camogie club championships. The various semi finals at senior and intermediate will all be decided this weekend and we'll know by 4pm on Sunday who's Croke Park bound for early March.
Milford go into this game as firm favouites but you knew that already. The Munster champions are unbeaten in over 20 games and boast some of the best club talent in the country in their ranks. They also have the confidence that comes with any Cork side arriving at the last four stage of the championship.
The dream of three-in-a-row of titles is alive and well but their preparation for Sunday won't have been helped by the absence through injury of Deirdre Reilly. There must also be some slight concern that they have found it difficult against Galway sides previously such as Ardrahan and Killimor.
Mullagh's hopes will be pinned firmly on the talent of Rachel Monaghan and Sinead Cahalan to try and upset the Milford system. They cannot allow the Cork side to dictate the tempo of the game or to play it on their terms. Having recovered from their county loss to Ardrahan in 2013, Mullagh have come back stronger with a serious forward line that could test the normally air-tight Milford rearguard.
Expect goals and plenty of drama.
Oulart-The Ballagh (Wexford) v Loughgiel Shamrocks (Antrim) Castleblayney GAA, 2.30
Postponed due to an unplayable pitch as a result of the recent heavy snow in the area. The fixture will be re-scheduled for Sunday February 8th with the venue and throw-in time to be confirmed
AIB All-Ireland intermediate club camogie semi-finals Oranmore/Maree (Galway) v Lismore (Waterford) Charleville GAA, Co. Cork 2.30
Defending champions Lismore put their title on the line once again this Sunday as they face Gaway outfit Oranmore/Maree.
The Waterford side have massive expectation on them to lift another club title within 12 months but the westerners have proved this year that they are a solid outfit.
Piltown (Kilkenny) v Clonduff (Down)
You couldn't have All-Ireland club semi finals without a representative from Kilkenny. Piltown are flying the flag for the Marble County this year, looking to end a barren spell in the club championship for teams from Noreside.
Katie Power is the player to watch as she looks to guide her team to Croke Park against a side brimming with experience and recent All-Ireland winners.
Clonduff have seven of the All-Ireland Junior side in their ranks and if Power is curbed this game could go either way.
