An expert panel will provide their insights into the eagerly anticipated AIB All-Ireland Club Football Championship semi-final between Leinster kingpins Mullinalaghta St Columba's and Munster champions Dr Crokes, Killarney at a special preview night on Wednesday, February 13 at 8pm in Kiernan Milling, Granard.

The star studded expert panel will feature Oisín McConville (Crossmaglen Rangers & Armagh), Dessie Dolan (Garrycastle & Westmeath) and Dick Clerkin (Currin & Monaghan). 

McConville certainly knows a thing or two about winning club titles - he won ten Ulster and six All-Ireland titles with Crossmaglen, and you can throw in sixteen Armagh county titles for good measure. And at inter-county level, he is the holder of one All-Ireland SFC medal, one NFL medal and seven Ulster SFC medals.

Dick Clerkin's inter-county career with Monaghan spanned from 1999 to 2016 and he won Ulster SFC medals with the Farney County in 2013 & '15. 

An All Star winner in 2004, Dessie Dolan also won his only Leinster SFC title with Westmeath that year. He is the holder of seven Westmeath senior club medals and in 2011, he helped Garrycastle win a Leinster club title.

The preview night, sponsored by Kiernan Milling, is a fundraiser for Mullinalaghta St Columba's and tickets, costing €20, can be purchased from Kiernan Milling 043 666 0000 or John Keegan 087 357 5906.

There will be plenty of craic and banter on the night (Wednesday, February 13 at 8pm) and there will be prizes galore to be won, including tickets to the big match, Mullinalaghta St Columba's and Dr Crokes, which takes place on Saturday, February 16 in Semple Stadium, Thurles. 

So don't miss out and come along to Kiernan Milling, Granard on Wednesday to hear what the experts have to say about the big match.....
