SUNDAY week’s Limerick Senior Football Championship Final will involve usual suspects Adare and Newcastle West (NCW).
It will be third final on the trot involving the pair, with Jimmy Lee’s NCW seeking an historic three-in-row.
The John Brudair managed Adare needed extra time to overcome the stubborn challenge of Fr Casey’s in Newcastle West (2-15 to 2-12).
Adare appeared home-and-hosed nearing the hour mark only to leak a couple of goals, one of which was a converted penatly from Eliah O’Riordan. Goals for Adare arrived early on through Hugh Bourke and Davey Lyons.
In additional time, Adare outscored their opponents four points to one.
Newcastle West breezed past Monaleen, 1-9 to 0-6, in the other semi-final. NCW’s goal came through towering full-forward Mike McMahon.
Mungret St Paul’s and Dromcollogher/Broadford are through to the Intermediate Final following respective semi-final wins over Rathkeale and St Senan’s.
Meanwhile, Limerick have been drawn at home to Cork in the opening round of the 2024 Munster Senior Football Championship, the winners of which will then face holders Kerry in the semi-final.
The other semi is Clare v Tipperary/Waterford.
