Castlemahon captain James Guinea looking forward to the “great” challenge of the Clifford’s led Fossa in Munster semi-final

The West Limerick side were made to work for their win over the Waterford champions in Coolyroe on Saturday.

Castlemahon are into the Munster Junior Club Championship semi-final after their 1-18 to 2-12 victory against Shamrocks on  Saturday afternoon. Limerick hurling star Seamus Flanagan was the difference as his 1-5 saw them over the line with Alan Roche also contributing 0-8

When asked about his side’s three-point victory over the Waterford champions, injured captain Guinea said, “these are the days you dream of,” clearly delighted with his team’s effort against a dogged Shamrocks side after going behind early in the game

When asked about the tough conditions in Coolyroe Guinea complimented his team’s effort in the tough conditions as they coped well after early setbacks turning a five-point deficit into a three-point win.

“It is winter football and it is tough but we enjoy it we haven’t been this competition in a long time and God when you’re playing this time of the year it’s great. I know it’s a bit heavy here now in Coolyroe but you know hopefully in two weeks time we’ll be here again.”

Castlemahon will now host Fossa who beat Listry in the Kerry Junior final this past weekend. The Clifford led side will travel to Limerick on November 26 with a place in the Munster final on the line. 

When asked about the upcoming challenge of a side that contains Footballer of the Year David Clifford and his All-Star brother Paudie, Guinea said it would be great for the club but a very difficult challenge.

“It would be great to get the two Cliffords and the two Flanagans on the same pitch but sure look county champions they’ll be able to play football at the end of the day”

Guinea himself  has been forced to watch from the sidelines this year with injury but has been impressed with his side’s performances in recent games as they now stand just sixty minutes from a provincial final.

 “I find it it’s worse to watch but injuries are the joy of the game and fair play to the boys they all stuck behind me and it’s a team game at the end of the day.”
