Páirc Sheáin Uí Eislin hosts the semi-final

Ballinamore claimed their first ever men’s or women’s Connacht championship and move into the ladies All-Ireland series on home soil

Derry and Ulster champions Steelstown are a side laced with former and current inter-county stars. Steelstown landed a first Ulster ladies Intermediate title with victory over Antrim outfit Glenavy.

Megan McGovern has been in good form at midfield for Ballinamore. While, Roisin McHugh up front will punish any Steelstown indiscretions from placed balls.

Steelstown were junior semi-finalists in 2015 and find themselves in the last four of the Intermediate All-Ireland series with some survivors from eight-years-ago.

Including former TG4 Junior Players’ Player of the Year, Emma Doherty. Both teams possess a lovely mix of youth and experience and this fixture could go right down to the wire.

Meanwhile, Glanmire of Cork face Meath and Leinster champions Na Fianna at 2pm on Sunday in Mallow, in the second semi-final.
