Preview: Weekend's Provincial Football Finals
Saturday June 23
Munster Senior Football Championship Final
Cork v Kerry, Pairc Ui Chaoimh, 7pm
Without a Championship win over Kerry since 2012, Cork will be hoping to cause a surprise down by the banks of the Lee.
In the intervening years Kerry have won four matches, while there has also been one draw.
This game, though, promises to be interesting because Cork took significant encouragement from the emphatic semi-final triumph over Tipperary.
Luke Connolly starred during the 1-17 to 0-9 success as the prolific Nemo Rangers attacker landed 10 points, including five from play.
Kerry, loaded with promising newcomers, are looking to earn an 80th provincial crown, but they will afford Cork the utmost respect.
Sunday June 24
Ulster Senior Football Championship Final
Fermanagh v Donegal, Clones, 2pm
A first ever Ulster final meeting between Donegal and Fermanagh isn't short on subplots.
The Rory Gallagher factor will inevitably be discussed ahead of Sunday's encounter at St Tiernach's Park.
Gallagher served as a selector and manager during a glittering time in Donegal's history, but has returned to make a serious impact with his native Fermanagh.
Reaching this provincial decider is a real achievement for Fermanagh, who have outfoxed Armagh and Monaghan without conceding a goal.
Donegal have been freescoring en route to this game blasting six majors in victories over Cavan, Derry, and Down.
Jamie Brennan's development bodes well, while Paddy McBrearty and Michael Murphy remain influential figures.
Leinster Senior Football Championship Final
Dublin v Laois, Croke Park, 4pm
It has been a positive year so far for Laois, who claimed the Allianz Football League title before securing Championship wins over Wexford, Westmeath, and Carlow.
Momentum has certainly been generated by Laois, who will be aware that a daunting challenge exists against the current standard bearers.
Dublin beat Wicklow and Longford with the minimum of fuss despite spirited displays from the underdogs in both contests.
Jim Gavin's charges did land 6-50 over the 140 minutes, though, with Bryan Fenton and Ciaran Kilkenny clipping 2-18 from play between them.
An eighth Leinster crown in a row is the target for Dublin.
