Dr Crokes and Slaughtneil will contest the All Ireland Club Football final on St Patrick's Day.

Munster club champions Dr Crokes beat 2015 winners Corofin of Galway by 2-11 to 0-8 in their semi-final at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick.

Kerry star Colm Cooper was in action for Crokes while the goals came from Gavin O'Shea and Jordan Kiely either side of half time.


Earlier, Co Derry's Slaughtneil booked their place in the decider after they defeated 2014 champions St Vincent's by 0-12 to 0-10 at Pairc Esler in Newry.

Chrissy McKaigue impressed for Slaughtneil as he delivered 0-4 for his club as they reached their second All Ireland senior final in three years. On that previous occasion they lost to Corofin in the decider.
