St Breckan’s have secured their spot in this year’s Cusack Cup final.

It is their first time back in the decider since they won their only title in 2005, with Donie Garrihy’s side extending their unbeaten record after a 0-9 apiece draw with Doonbeg.

Doonbeg are still in contention to reach the semi-finals, along with Ennistymon and Kildysart, with one round left to play.



Ennistymon overcame Miltown by 0-9 to 2-2, while Kildysart mounted a late comeback to beat Clondegad by 3-10 to 2-11.

At the other end of the table, Miltown’s loss to Ennistymon sees the back to back champions relegated to the Garry Cup, with county champions Eire Óg all but assured of joining them after losing to Kilmurry Ibrickane by 2-11 to 0-8.

It has been suggested the football leagues will be restructured for 2023, with the eight Cusack Cup teams and top four sides in the Garry Cup coming together for Division One, while the bottom four Garry Cup teams and all of Division Three coming together for the new Division Two.

In the Garry Cup, Corofin are promoted after receiving a walkover from O’Curry’s, with the peninsula side still sitting second in the standings and well placed to reach the final.

Lissycasey are in third place after their win over St Joseph’s Doora Barefield saw them leapfrog the Parish into third spot ahead of the final round of games.
