The semi-final pairings in this Sundays Michael Lyng Motors Intermediate championship must be unique. All four have been successful in the All Ireland Club championships in the last 5 years. St Lachtains were All Ireland Intermediate champions in 2010. In 2012 St Patricks Ballyraggett started a great run in the Junior championship followed by Thomastown in 2013 and Bennettsbridge in 2015. Who will contest the Leinster Club Intermediate championship this year. Sunday's fare at Nowlan Park should give a good indication.
