Premier Division Shield Semi-Finals
Nenagh Celtic Vs Ballymackey Fc
Both sides come into this after suffering heavy defeats last weekend. Celtic though will hope to regain a sense of normality and the host a struggling Ballymackey side. Celtic will also hope to be back to full strength after having many missing against Clonmel Town and we feel that they will be way too strong for the Balinree side. Player like Danny Ryan and Jimmy Hynes will prove too much for the opposition here.

Thurles Town Vs Borrisokane Fc
Borrisokane travel to the Greyhound Stadium knowing they have every chance after their quarter final win against Cloughjordan. The away side had a tough weekend against TSDL side St Michael’s and suffered a huge 10-0 defeat. Town had their own cross to bear after losing to local rivals Peake Villa on Sunday but they should have enough to go through here. Players like Tommy Brophy and Paul Kirwan will indeed be a huge danger as always.

Division 1 Shield:
Rearcross FC Vs Clodiagh Rangers Fc
Another interesting tie here as both sides look to add to last weekends wins. Rearcross started their season with a huge 6-0 win against Roscrea Town B whereas Clodiagh had a big win against Portumna. Michael O’Gorman will hope to add to last weeks 4 goal haul and Clodiagh will look to Paul Shanahan and Dean Carew to get them to the next round.
