Very few would have thought the Wexford club side would go this far…
The Wexford side faced Monaghan and Ulster champions Blackhill in today’s All-Ireland semi-final, which took place at St Conleths Park Newbridge [Kildare].
The win sees Rathgarogue-Cushinstown face the winners of the other semi-final, which, at the time of writing, has now moved into extra-time. The teams currently playing in the other All-Ireland Junior Football semi-final are Kerry champions Na Gaeil GAA club and Kilmaine of Mayo.
A date in Croke Park now awaits for the Wexford champions. To date they’ve overcome the Kilkenny champions, the Offaly champions, the Dublin champions, the Meath champions, and now the Monaghan champions.
The Rathgarogue-Cushinstown side, managed by James Bolger, will hope to replicate the same story in Croke Park against either the Kerry or Mayo champions.
Incredibly, the All-Ireland Junior Club Football final will be played in Croke Park on Saturday 25 January, as part of a triple-header with the Intermediate Club Football final and the Dublin vs Kerry first round of the Allianz Football League.
The Rathgarogue-Cushinstown game will start at 3:15, with the second game to start at 5.15, with the Dublin and Kerry game underway underlights at 7:15.
