Feohanagh Castelmahon provide parking and directions update for Saturday’s Munster semi-final

All roads lead to Coolyroe this weekend as the West Limerick outfit host Kerry Junior champions Fossa.

Castlemahon will have their hands full this Saturday as they welcome Kerry Premier Junior Champions to Quaid Park in the Munster semi-final.

The prize for the winners will be a place in the decider against either Thurles Sarsfields or Kilmurry. Castlemahon have priors in the Munster final, falling to Keel of Kerry in 2013.

But this Saturday’s clash promises to be a special one as Fossa come with the All-Ireland-winning Clifford brothers David and Paudie in tow.

David was recently named Footballer of the Year while Paudie collected a second successive All-Star award. With a huge crowd expected for the game, Feohanagh Castlemahon have issued an update on directions and parking to Quaid Park in Coolyroe.

There will be a one way trafic system in operation with no access from the Kilmeedy side with patrons to travel from Bunoke Bridge towards Quaid Park. Spectators are urged to travel to the game early as they may have to walk a distance. Throw in is at 1pm.

“Please note that there will be a one way traffic system to the match which will be coming in from Bunoke Bridge towards Quaid Park. There will be no access to Coolyroe by road from the Kilmeedy side. Please adhere to all traffic management as the Guards will be at either ends of the roads. Please leave in plenty of time to avoid missing the game as parking will be dealt with in a strict manner and you may have to walk a distance.”

For those who cannot make the game, it will be streamed live by Munster GAA TV.

Castlemahon reached the last four of the competition after beating Shamrocks of Waterford in an absorbing quarter-final in Coolyroe a fortnight ago. Seamus Flanagan and Alan Roche combined for 1-13 as they ran out 1-18 to 2-12 winners. On the same day, Fossa booked their place in the semis as they claimed the Kerry title where they needed extra time to see off Listry.

But despite Fossa’s obvious firepower, Castlemahon have relatively recent experience at this stage of the provincial championships. Nine years ago they overcame Drom & Inch to reach the Munster semi-finals where they were paired with Clare’s Coolmeen. They had five points to spare over the Banner men but fell to Keel 0-14 to 0-4 in the final.

This time around they will be certainly hoping to go one better against the unbackable favourites.
