Three times All-Ireland Senior Gaelic Football final referee David Coldrick will be the man in the middle when the Laois champions take on Dublin champions Kilmacud Crokes in the AIB Leinster Senior Club semi-final.

Meath native David Coldrick will be in charge of the semi-final which is a home game for Kilmacud though it will be played on the north side of the Liffey from their south county Dublin base.

Coldrick is no stranger to big games. He took charge of the 2015 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final between Dublin and Kerry having previously officiated over the 2007 decider between Cork and Kerry and the 2010 final between Cork and Down.

The match throws in on Sunday, November 25 in Parnell Park at 2 pm.

Mullinalaghta St Columba's of Longford take on Éire Óg of Carlow in the other semi. It throws in at Pearse Park, Longford at 1.30pm in Pearse Park, Longford.

Meanwhile, Portlaoise GAA fans won't have to battle the M7 roadworks and M50 this weekend to support their club.

The Town's hurlers take on Ballinamere in the AIB Leinster Club Intermediate Hurling Championship 2018 semi-final in O'Moore Park.
