Lahinch will face home side Killarney in the final of the All-Ireland Senior Cup Final after both teams cruised through their respective knockout matches.

After getting the better of Laytown & Bettystown 4-1 in the quarter finals, Chloe Ryan picked up where she left off in the semi-final encounter against Woodbrook to set Lahinch on their way to a dominant 4.5 – .5 win.

Meanwhile, Killarney were just as impressive, making home advantage count in a 5-0 drubbing of Kilkenny before Mairead Martin got the better of Annabel Wilson in a huge battle in the first match against Lurgan in the semi-finals to inspire Killarney to a resounding 4-1 win.

The two best sides in the competition come face to face from 9am tomorrow
