PREVIEW: Limerick Junior A Football Final

This Sunday, Crecora Manister and Monagea meet in a novel Limerick Junior A football final when they play in Kilmallock at 12 noon.

Both qualified for the final with Wednesday night victories, Crecora over Croom and Monagea against Newcastle West.

Monagea have been the form team throughout with five wins from five.

In the group stages they overcame Ballybrown, Cappagh and Cappamore before flexing their muscles in a comprehensive 4-15 to 1-10 win over Fr Caseys in the quarter-finals.

On Wednesday, a late goal was enough to see off Newcastle West. Monagea were semi-final losers in 2019 and last won the crown in 2001.

Their opponents Crecora lost out in the group stages to Kilteely Dromkeen but had the upset of the competition when they beat favourites Athea 3-7 to 2-7 in the quarter-finals.

They then beat last year’s finalists Croom with a last gasp goal on Wednesday night.

That was their first ever semi-final as they look to participate in the Intermediate grade for the first time ever.
