Michael Darragh Macauley leads Ballyboden past brave Raheny

Club championship in Dublin is always tightly contested and this year is no different. Both hurling and football are now in the semi-final stages.

Last weekend’s quarter-finals threw up a plethora of highlights. Holders Ballyboden St. Enda’s had to dig deep to see off Raheny in extra time. 5 points from Conal Keaney went a long way. Also, a strong performance from Michael Darragh Macauley in midfield overshadowed the challenge of Brian Howard and Brian Fenton.

Elsewhere, Ballymun Kickhams defeated Na Fianna with the aid of James McCarthy and Dean Rock. A late black card for Johnny Cooper smothered his side’s chances.

Paul Mannion raised one of four green flags for Kilmacud Crokes. They shrugged aside a weary-looking St. Vincent’s side with ease.

Lastly, Kevin McManamon scored a superb solo goal for St. Jude’s. This went a long way in their 7 point win over Skerries Harps.

As a result, Paddy Power have made Kilmacud Crokes favorites at 2/1. Very close though are Ballymun and Ballyboden, both at 9/4. St. Jude’s are the outsiders at 13/2.

The semi-finals consist of Ballymun Kickhams vs Kilmacud Crokes and Ballyboden St. Enda’s vs St. Jude’s. They are scheduled for the 12th/13th of September. The final coming a week later.

Alongside this, the Senior B Championship semi-finals take place. Naomh Mearnóg have to beat St. Brigid’s to reach the final. Meanwhile, Templeogue Synge Street have a tough task to overcome Cuala.

Club Hurling Championship

Fans don’t have as long to wait for the hurling semi-finals. They come in the form of a doubleheader on Sunday the 6th. At 2pm, Lucan Sarsfields play 2019 winners Cuala. Following this, Ballyboden St. Enda’s take on Na Fianna at 4.30. Ballyboden fans are not starved of club championship action in the coming weeks by any means.

Dubs TV have offered club championship action extensively. This weekend will likely be no different.
