NEWCASTLE West make the short journey to Knockaderry this Sunday (2.00) to play Cork’s Diarmuid O’Máthúna’s in the semi-final of the Munster JBFC.

Twenty-five years after the Newcastle senior footballers contested the Munster club final against Nemo Rangers, the club are back on the provincial trail.

Of course they also played in the Munster club in 1992 but this Sunday Newcastle West play in the Munster JBFC. They face Cork’s Diarmuid O’Máthúna’s in Knockaderry in the provincial semi-final.

Just like Killeedy with the Munster JBHC, Knockaderry have hosted the Munster club junior B football championship in recent years. To-date, Limerick haven’t enjoyed any success.

The competition got underway last weekend when Kerry’s Scartaglen beat Clare’s Kilmurry Ibrickane in a quarter-final tie. Scartaglen progress to play the winners of this weekend’s Tipperary county final in their provincial semi-final.

James Hennessy’s Newcastle West should be high on confidence after finally making the county break through and could be sharper than the Cork champions, who won in early September.
