There’s just over three weeks to go to Christmas but, despite this, there’s a welter of provincial club action on this weekend. Here’s a quick look at what’s on and when.
Starting with women’s football, Castlebar Mitchels take on Roscommon champions St Dominic’s in the LGFA Connacht Intermediate Championship semi-final. That game takes place at Josie Munnelly Park, Castlebar, tomorrow where throw-in is 1pm.
Also at 1pm tomorrow but this time over in London, the Tooreen hurlers have their second outing in this year’s Connacht Intermediate hurling Championship. Their opponents in this Connacht IHC semi-final are London champions Robert Emmet’s and the match takes place tomorrow at McGovern Park in Ruislip. Tickets for this game are already fully sold out.
An hour later, Tooreen’s sister club, Na Brídeoga, join the fray. They’re contesting the final of the Connacht Rose Nixon Cup and they’re away to Galway club Abbeyknockmoy in the decider which throws in at 2pm.
On Sunday, the focus switches to men’s football, with two of this year’s county champions in provincial semi-final action then.
Recently crowned Junior champions Kilmeena face Galway’s Athenry in the Connacht JFC semi-final. That match is being played the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan. Throw-in is 1.30pm on Sunday. Tickets are available to purchase for this game here.
1.30pm on Sunday is also when the Connacht SFC semi-final between Knockmore and Tourlestrane of Sligo gets underway. That game – like the recent county final – is fixed for James Stephens Park in Ballina. Tickets are available to purchase for it here and Connacht GAA are also streaming it (€10 PPV) – details on that here.
The very best of luck to all the Mayo teams in provincial Championship action this weekend.
