AIB Munster Club SFC Semi-Finals
Dr Crokes (Kerry) v Kilmurry-Ibrickane (Clare), Dr Crokes GAA, 2pm
All Ireland champions Dr Crokes dealt with a potentially awkward situation against Clonmel Commercials.
Trailing by 0-5 to 0-2 at the end of the first quarter Crokes recovered eventually emerging convincing victors.
That Jordan Kiely, Eoin Brosnan, and Ambrose O'Donovan all made appearances as substitutes shows the depth of the Crokes panel.
Crokes started that game without injured talisman Colm Cooper too, but Daithi Casey, Johnny Buckley, Fionn Fitzgerald, and Kieran O'Leary drove them to victory.
Kilmurry-Ibrickane beat first time Clare finalists Clondegad with Keelan Sexton, Martin McMahon, and Enda Coughlan leading the charge.
Nemo Rangers (Cork) v Adare (Limerick), Mallow, 2.45pm
Nemo Rangers eventually overcame city rivals St Finbarr's following a replay in Cork.
There is a nice blend of youth and experience in the Nemo ranks with former Kerry star Tomas O Se still a valuable contributor.
Elsewhere Nemo will be looking to the Cronins, Kevin Fulignati, Paul Kerrigan, and Luke Connolly to secure their passage into another southern showpiece.
Adare, Limerick Intermediate champions in 2016, made a dramatic return to the Senior ranks by claiming an unexpected title.
In the closing stages Jack English blasted a dramatic late goal to earn Adare victory.
