Gaeil Colmcille and Blackhall Gaels will face each other in the IHC final this year after they made it through their respective semi-final encounters at Trim this afternoon.
In the first game James Battersby's Blackhall Gaels conjured up a strong second-half display to defeat Kilskyre 2-14 to 1-14.
The Gaels didn't have the best of starts and trailed 0-1 to 0-4 after eight minutes but they found their touch and were ahead 0-9 to 0-8 at the break.
With the help of goals from Jonathan Meyler and Kevin Coyle Blackhall took a stranglehold on proceedings in the second-half to secure their place in the showdown.
In an entertaining, tense final few minutes Blackhall's Shane O'Loughlin was red carded but his team held on to win.
Gaeil Colmcille led all the way to defeat a Wolfe Tones outfit who started to find their form when it was too late.
At the break Gaeil Colmcille deservedly led 0-7 to 0-3 and on the resumption Seamus Mattimoe fired to the net to put them in a commanding position.
With the breeze at their backs the Tones, who shot seven wides in the second-half, came back strongly and with time almost up they had reduced the deficit to the minimum.
However Stephen Reddy popped over the last score of game in injury time to seal it for Gaeil Colmcille on a 1-10 to 0-11 scoreline.
