Preparations are done and all teams are looking forward to the two finals tomorrow in Abbotsown, first is the Junior Ladies at 1pm and the second at 3pm.
Tonight, we take a look at our last junior mixed finalists Kilmeena of Mayo and the following is their route to the final.
The Mayo team finished second in Group A meaning that they would head straight through to the quarterfinals.
They started off their campaign with a win against Mayo rivals Mayo Gaels winning 17-5 with an innings to spare and got their season off to the perfect start.
They then played St Senans who topped the table, however Kilmeena came out on top in this one and recorded their second win of the season. Impressively beating the Limerick side 22-10.
They finished their group stages with a game against tomorrowâ€™s opponents the Galway Rapparees with the Galway team coming out on top. Kilmeena will be looking to learn from that game and change the result come tomorrow afternoon.
The defeat meant the Mayo side would qualify for a quarter-final where they took on Dunderry of Meath. They overcame this test on a score of 20-10.
This meant they would travel to Clonguish to take on Inniskeen in the semi-final. They showed why they got to this stage and put in a great display and overcame the Monaghan side to book at place in Abbotstown to take on Connacht rivals Galway Rapparees.
