FEENAGH-Kilmeedy stand 60-minutes away from a December 8 Munster JAHC final.

Victory on Sunday, in Sixmilebridge at 2.00 against Bodyke, will progress the Limerick junior hurling winners into a provincial final against Ballysaggart (Waterford), Grenagh (Cork) or Knockshegowna (Tipperary).

Feenagh-Kilmeedy travel to Sixmilebridge to face a side that aren’t county champions.

The east Clare side were beaten by in the county semi-final and not by the eventual winners.

But the Clare championship is one that is dominated by second string outfits.

Indeed Bodyke are the first Clare representatives since 2007 in the Munster club championship.

Bodyke haven’t played a championship game since mid-September and this could work to the advantage of the Limerick men.

The men in blue and white certainly won’t be rusty as they face into an 11th championship game between hurling and football since, Bodyke were knocked out in Clare.

But that said, Bodyke were an intermediate club last season.

However, the club of former All Star Liam Doyle, have struggled for numbers in recent years.

As Feenagh-Kilmeedy bid to follow in the footsteps of Blackrock in 2009, they will look to make a lively start and punish any lack of Bodyke ambition.

Last week’s win over Kenmare demonstrates that Feenagh-Kilmeedy have the ability to reach the Munster final.
