It could be a case of two out of three ain’t bad for Dublin ladies football as St Sylvester’s and St Jude’s look to progress to All-Ireland Club Football Championships finals.

With Foxrock-Cabinteely exiting the Leinster Championships to Royal County side Dunboyne, Dublin has no representation in the All-Ireland Senior Championship final four.

However, two sides from the capital remain in the hunt for All-Ireland success and could book final berths over the next 10 days as St Slyvester’s and St Jude’s compete for places in differing deciders.

Judes go to battle for a place in All-Ireland Junior Ladies Football Championship final while Slyvester’s compete in the Intermediate equivalent.

Standing between Malahide side Slyvester’s and the All-Ireland Intermediate Ladies Football Championship final are Kinawley Brian Borus. 

Sly’s take on the Fermanagh and Ulster champions at Broomfield on Sunday, throw-in at 1pm.

Templeogue side Judes also face Ulster Champions in their final quest as they play Carrickmacross of Monaghan in two weeks’ time hoping to secure a first-ever All-Ireland final spot.

The sides at opposite ends of the M50 both beat English opposition in the quarter-finals. Judes hit a massive 9-18 against Newcastle side Tír na nÓg to canter into the last four with the likes of Aoife Keyes, Cliodhna Nicoletti,  Laura Martina and Ellie Young all raising the green flag against a side that only managed to score five points.

Sylvester’s passage to the semis wasn’t quite as smooth but comfortable nonetheless. Goals from the club’s inter-county stars Sinead Aherne and Nicole Owens helped them finish 13 points ahead of London side Holloway Gaels.
