WATCH: Gerald Griffins manager John Lynch speaks about importance of IFC Final

Gerald Griffins will look to earn promotion to the Senior Football Championship this Sunday when they face Galtee Gaels in the Intermediate Final.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Gerald Griffins manager John Lynch spoke about how much it would mean to the rural football club to earn promotion to the senior ranks this weekend.

“It’s difficult to describe but everyone knows what it would mean to a small place, it’s different for a bigger town. But for us we have a GAA club and the whole parish revolves around that.”

These sides met in round five of the group stages with Gerald Griffins coming out on top by five points, 0-12 to 0-7.

However, Lynch doesn’t feel like that game will have much bearing on this weekend’s result with both sides already qualified for the knockout stages when they met in August.

“I don’t think it will make any difference. It was over two months ago, different conditions we were both pretty much assured of qualifying. We know how good they are.”
