NEWMARKET  & COROFIN MEET  IN MUNSTER  IFC  SEMI  FINAL

Newmarket and Corofin meet in the prospect of a lively encounter in the AIB Munster IFC at Mallow this Sunday (1.30pm).

Coming to the end of their respective county deciders, both sides conjured up remarkable fightbacks on stepping back from the brink and collecting sweet titles.

For Newmarket, two points down going into injury time in the Pairc Uí Chaoimh staging, they didn't flinch on shooting three points without reply against Kanturk, the outcome will go down as of the club's most gratifying wins in the club history.

Meanwhile Corofin churned out a dramatic victory over Kildysart in the Clare decider. Trailing by four points deep into injury time, the additional seven minutes saw the contest turn on its head and two late goals earned Corofin a title for the first time since 2015.

This is likely to be a great battle for supremacy with both sides coming into a Munster semi final with momentum behind them. Corofin can avail of an outing already in Munster, however , the Cork champions are on a roll yet better consistency over the hour will be required if hopes of advancing to a Munster Final are to be realised.
