Preview: Weekend's Club Gaelic Football action
Saturday November 9
Tipperary SFC Final
Clonmel Commercials v JK Brackens, Semple Stadium, 2.30pm
With three titles won since 2012, Clonmel Commercials don't lack County Final experience.
JK Brackens, though, overcame defending champions Moyle Rovers at the penultimate stage so they will be afforded the utmost respect.
The Kennedys and Michael Quinlivan are accomplished performers for Commercials, who won the AIB Munster Club title in 2015.
Sunday November 10
AIB Connacht Club SFC semi-finals
Tir Chonaill Gaels (London) v Padraig Pearses (Roscommon), McGovern Park, 2pm
This could be a tricky test for first time Roscommon champions Padraig Pearses in Ruislip.
Pearses proved too strong for Tourlestrane, but Tir Chonaill Gaels, with London captain Liam Gavaghan a key performer, are hopeful about making an impact.
The Daly brothers continue to contribute handsomely for Pat Flanagan's Pearses outfit, who would relish the opportunity to compete in a provincial decider.
Corofin (Galway) v Ballintubber (Mayo), Tuam Stadium, 2pm
Corofin made it seven Galway SFC titles on the spin when defeating Tuam Stars last weekend.
Still the defending AIB All Ireland club champions will be worried by a surprisingly poor conversion rate of 0-11 from 31 opportunities in that replay.
Ballintubber are exactly the type of hard working and well drilled team that could exploit any Corofin uncertainty.
Kevin Johnson is a highly regarded emerging coach in the west, who has steered the O'Connor powered Ballintubber to successive Mayo Championships.
In Connacht Ballintubber have suffered heavy losses against Corofin, but this could be a much closer affair.
AIB Leinster Club SFC Quarter-Finals
Newtown Blues (Louth) v Ballyboden St Endas (Dublin), Gaelic Grounds, 1.30pm
Ballyboden St Enda's used all their guile when outfoxing Thomas Davis in the Dublin SFC Final last Sunday.
Now 'Boden, with Michael Darragh MacAuley and the Basquel brothers prominent, want to embark on a Leinster adventure.
Newtown Blues have impressed in Louth recently and feature several established inter-county players, who will be anxious to cause problems for Ballyboden.
St Patricks (Wicklow) v Portlaoise (Laois), Joule Park, Aughrim, 1.30pm
Kieran Lillis and Gareth Dillon were hugely effective as Portlaoise overcame Killeshin in the Laois decider.
That turned into a seriously demanding game for Portlaoise, who eventually registered a 12th County Final triumph in 13 years.
St Patrick's, though, with Tommy Kelly excellent in attack retained their Wicklow title last month and then finished strongly to overcome Ferbane in the AIB Leinster Club preliminary round.
Eire Og (Carlow) v Sarsfields (Kildare), Netwatch Cullen Park, 2pm
Eire Og will be hopeful about making an impact against Sarsfields, who dethroned Moorefield as Kildare champions.
Chris Blake, Cormac Mullins, and Jordan Morrissey all impressed for the Carlow outfit, who have flourished on this stage previously.
Sarsfields, managed by Davy Burke, showed admirable courage and character when drawing with Moorefield before beating them in the replay.
Barry Coffey has caught the eye for Sarsfields in 2019.
Garrycastle (Westmeath) v Ratoath (Meath), TEG Cusack Park, 1.30pm
First time Meath champions Ratoath make the short journey to Mullingar for an interesting encounter against Garrycastle.
A storming last quarter in the Westmeath final illustrated what Garrycastle can achieve and the win over Emmet Og Killoe proved to be very satisfying for Gary Dolan's charges.
Ratoath, though, enter loaded with confidence following a great campaign in Meath with Conor McGill, the Wallaces, and Bryan McMahon influential.
AIB Munster Club SFC Quarter-Finals
Miltown-Malbay (Clare) v Rathgormack (Waterford), Miltown-Malbay, 1.30pm
Milltown-Malbay reached the 2018 Munster Final and are hopeful about returning again.
The Clearys were key contributors in the Clare final and replay success over Kilmurry-Ibrickane.
Rathgormack won a first Waterford title in 20 years with Jason Gleeson impressing.
Nemo Rangers (Cork) v Newcastle West (Limerick), Mallow, 1.30pm
Luke Connolly's brilliance steered Nemo Rangers to glory in Cork.
Now one of the most illustrious clubs in the country are eager to recapture provincial and national honours.
Newcastle West enjoyed a Limerick final win over Oola with Iain Corbett supplying inspiration and vital scores.
Kerry SFC final
East Kerry v Dr Crokes, Austin Stack Park, 3pm
Dr Crokes have won seven out of the last nine Kerry Championships to prove their undoubted class.
East Kerry, though, bring a solid outfit, including David Clifford, into this eagerly anticipated decider.
Tony Brosnan struck six points in Crokes' semi-final win, while Daithi Casey is also in good form for the reigning Kerry and Munster champions.
