There’s so much going on in the club calendar this week, starting early with the Dublin Senior Football Championship Semi Finals.

Ballymun Kickhams v St. Vincents

Wednesday in Parnell Park, the 2012 Champions will face the 2014 Champions. Ballymun and Vincents have had a tough rivalry in this competition over the years. 2012 saw a 27 year wait finally end for Kickhams winning the title, came close in 2013, but it was the Marino men who stopped their run, but only after a replay.

St. Vincents have made it to the last three finals of this competition, winning in 2013 and 2014, only to be beaten by Ballyboden last year. They will be hoping Ballymun won’t stop them getting to their fourth final in a row.

Ballymun opened their campaign swallowing up O’Tooles 9-15 to 1-03 in Garristown, and followed that up with a slightly closer affair against St. Brigids. Last week they made light work of Raheny, winning 2-23 to 1-08 in Parnell Park.

St. Vincents opened their account with a comfortable win over Erin’s Isle and followed that with another convincing performance against Na Fianna. They’re Quarter Final opponents Lucan almost upset their run but Vinnies held on until the bitter end to grind out a three point victory.

Castleknock v St. Judes

On Thursday we’re back in Parnell Park again for the second of the two Semi Finals. Castleknock will be aiming for their first ever appearance in a county final as they face St. Judes in what should be a very evenly matched contest. St. Judes have not reached the county final since 2009 and back then were beaten by Ballyboden. There’s history to be made for either of these sides.

Judes dispensed of Cuala and Clontarf in the first two rounds of this year’s competition, and outplayed Kilmacud Crokes last week to earn their place on Thursday.

Castleknock had some battles with St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh and St. Sylvesters, before a powerhouse performance against Skerries Harps in the Quarter Finals.

Both these games are not to be missed and we expect a massive crowd on Wednesday and Thursday. It’s nights like these that make the Club Championships special.
