Nuremore will play Nenagh in the final of this year's GUI All-Ireland Four-Ball Inter-Club Championship.

Ulster champions Nuremore booked their place in the decider when they beat Portumna 3.5-1.5 in the first of Saturday's semi-finals at Limerick Golf Club. Nuremore took the top match 2&1 and although Portumna hit back in match two, the contest ultimately went the way of the Ulster side.

Nenagh will provide the opposition in the final. Noel O'Dwyer was the hero for the Tipperary men as he holed the match-winning putt in the decisive game against Malahide. O'Dwyer, a former Tipperary hurler, combined with Garry Howard to record a crucial 1-hole win.
