ST SYLVESTER’S of Malahide will be hoping to emulate the achievement of fellow Northside club Clontarf when they face Mayo giants Castlebar Mitchels in the All-Ireland Intermeditae Ladies Club Football Championship on Sunday (1.30pm, Ballinasloe, LIVE on LGFA Facebook Page).

Clontarf were the last Dublin club to win the competition back in 2018, but both Mitchels and Syl’s will be gracing the All-Ireland stage for the very first time.

Castlebar Mitchels will hope to become the very first Mayo winners of the competition. The last team from Connacht to lift the Intermediate title was Annaghdown from Galway back in 2016, while a St Sylvester’s win would ensure a Leinster win for a fourth successive season, following the exploits of Dunboyne (2017), Clontarf a year later, and Naomh Ciaran from Offaly in 2019.

Castlebar Mitchels came through a thriller against Kerry opponents Castleisland Desmonds in the last four, as St Sylvester’s got the better of Kinawley from Fermanagh.

St Jude’s will be hoping they can get the weekend off to a winning start when they compete in the Junior All-Ireland club final on Saturday (1.30pm, Baltinglass, LIVE on LGFA Facebook Page).

Mullinahone will aim to become Tipperary’s first competition winners, and keep the trophy in Munster for a fourth successive season, but they’ll face stiff opposition from a St Jude’s side looking to claim a first Dublin win since St Maur’s in 2016.

Thomas Davis (2012) and Foxrock-Cabinteely (2007) were the other clubs from Dublin to win the Junior title.
