Adare and Drom square off to see who will face Newcastle in County football final

With Newcastle’s place in the Limerick SFC already booked, Adare and Drom Broadford meet this Sunday to see who will face the 2015 champions in the final.

Adare have been a breath of fresh air upon their return to the Senior Championhsip. After defeating St Senans in the county intermediate final last year, their priority must have been to retain their senior status.

As things have panned out, this young Adare side have been highly impressive so far in their route to the semi final. They were unlocky not to have beaten last years champions Monaleen in the final in the group stage as they qualified for the knockout stages by virtue of finishing third in their group.

In the quarter final, they faced the 2014 champions Ballylanders. Despite dominating much of the game, Adare could only manage a draw in the first tie before putting ‘Landers to the sword in the replay winning out 3-14 to 1-8 to put their semi final opponents Drom Broadford notice.

Drom have been impressive in their own regard this year. While they are written off as an aging team each year, Drom continue to produce the goods year in year out.
Their only blip in the group stages came against Fr Caseys where the men from Abbeyfeale caused a major upset. However, in the final game of the group stage, Drom reaffirmed their status as one of the favourites for the championship by beating Monaleen to finish top of the group and this secure a semi final spot.

Whilst Adare have had the advantage of two quarter final fixtures heading into the game, since the group stages, Drom have competed in the County League Final in the meantime. Although losing the game to Newcastle, Drom will not be coming into the game cold and will be motivated by the chance to meet Newcastle West again in the decider.
