Cora Staunton collected 1-7 as five-time winners Carnacon booked their place in a first All-Ireland ladies senior club final since 2013.

Having had to come through two titanic encounters with Galway champions Kilkerrin/Clonberne - Carnacon's attentions turn north this Sunday when they take on Tyrone and Ulster champions St MacCartans in the All Ireland semi-final in the Red Hand side's home patch at 2pm. The Carnacon girls are looking to make it back to the final of the competition for the first time since 2013 as they go looking to claim their sixth All Ireland title. Since they first claimed an All Ireland title in 2002, the Mayo side have reached the final on eight occasions winning five and losing three times.
Galway’s Kilkerrin-Clonberne suffered a heartbreaking finish in their efforts to win this year's Connacht ladies' senior club football title on Sunday.
As everyone thought going into this game there was going to be nothing between these two sides when the final whistle went, and there literally was nothing, as they could not be separated at the end of a pulsating encounter that finished level on a score of 5-17 to 6-14 in Ballyhanuis. The sides will meet again this Sunday in the same venue at 2pm, with extra time and the potential of a point scoring shoot-out to follow if it is still level, and after these sides combined for a total of 11-31 last time out the smart money might be on just that outcome.
Ten years since they last graced Croke Park on All Ireland final day, the Mayo Ladies seniors are back in the big house for a crack at a fifth All Ireland title and their first since 2003.

The Mayo Ladies go looking to make it back to the All Ireland semifinal tomorrow afternoon - when they take on one of the most improving sides in the country - Donegal.
