JAHC Semi-Finals Preview | Final four to be whittled down to two this Saturday

The final in the Junior championship is scheduled to take place next weekend.

The race for promotion to the Intermediate championship is down to four with both semi-finals in the JAHC to take place this Saturday.

Dromcollogher Broadford meet the undefeated Patrickswell while last year’s finalists St Kierans face Killeedy in a West derby.

Dromcollogher Broadford v Patrickswell

Saturday 22 October in Croagh at 3pm

Croagh hosts the meeting of Drom Broadford and Patrickswell this Saturday as two of the form teams in the competition face off. Patrickswell remain perfect to this stage but needed a pair of last minute goals to see of Doon in the quarters a fortnight ago. Drom Broadford have won four on the trot and appear to be building nicely as they saw off Castletown Ballyagran in their quarter-final.

Paths to the Final

Dromcollogher Broadford

  • R1 – 0-12 : 1-13 v Ballybricken Boher (L)
  • R2 – 0-21 : 1-18 v Crecora Manister (D)
  • R3 – 2-18 : 1-13 v Templeglantine (W)
  • R4 – 0-25 : 3-6 v Blackrock (W)
  • R5 – 0-24 : 2-14 v Staker Wallace (W)
  • QF – 0-23 : 2-12 v Castletown Ballyagran (W)


  • R1 – 1-20 : 0-14 v Old Christians (W)
  • R2 – 2-21 : 3-16 v Kilteely Dromkeen (W)
  • R3 – 2-18 : 2-15 v Tournafulla (W)
  • R4 – 4-28 : 1-5 v Garryspillane (W)
  • R5 – 5-18 : 0-17 v Rathkeale (W)
  • QF – 2-11 : 2-10 v Doon (W)

These sides met at the same stage in 2020 where Patrickswell ran out winners following the lengthy covid induced delay. And with six wins from as many games they appear to be on course to reach the same stage again. Yet, Drom, who also have an Intermediate Football Final to look forward to, have momentum behind them with both sides sure to fancy their chances of progression.

St Kierans v Killeedy

Saturday 22 October in Newcastle West at 3pm

An intriguing all-West derby pits St Kierans against Killeedy in a mouthwatering semi-final tie. St Kierans have been imperious to this stage, winning each of their six contest with minimal fuss including their comprehensive quarter-final win over Kilteely Dromkeen.

Killeedy have stumbled a couple of times en route to the last four but will take huge confidence from their quarter final where they saw off a fancied Crecora Manister side on penalties.

St. Kieran’s

  • R1 – 2-18 : 1-13 v Askeaton (W)
  • R2 – 2-17 : 0-14 v Feenagh-Kilmeedy (W)
  • R3 – 3-17 : 2-7 v Ballybrown (W)
  • R4 – 2-15 : 0-13 v Doon (W)
  • R5 – 2-13 : 0-13 v Mungret St. Pauls (W)
  • QF – 1-16 : 0-10 v Kilteely Dromkeen (W)


  • R1 – 0-16 : 1-13 v St. Patrick’s (D)
  • R2 – 1-17 : 1-11 v Claughaun (W)
  • R3 – 1-18 : 1-17 v Monagea (W)
  • R4 – W/O : 0-0 v Ahane (W)
  • R5 – 0-14 : 2-16 v Castletown Ballyagran (L)
  • QF – 2-13 (5) : (4) 0-19 v Crecora Manister (W)

Last year St Kierans reached the final but were beaten by a brilliant Caherline side on the day in Kilmallock. However, they have looked determined to get back to that stage with Mungret St Pauls getting closest to the West side where they lost by six points. Killeedy were beaten by Castletown Ballyagran in the final round but were already assured of qualification before throw in.

Still, Kierans look the team to beat in the competition as they seek to right the wrongs of 2021.
