Club championship fixtures

As we put further distance between ourselves and events last Saturday, the focus within the Mayo GAA scene narrows down to local issues this coming weekend. The second round of matches in both the senior and intermediate club championships are on this Saturday and Sunday and the full list of fixtures is set out below.

The County Board moved smartly to deal with the tricky issue of the Ireland/France Euro ’16 match – which throws in at Lyons at 2pm on Sunday – by rescheduling the start times for Sunday’s matches. Basically, any matches that were listed for a 2pm start have been brought forward to midday while 4pm throw-ins have been shunted back to 5pm. The Board says in its statement (here) that they’re also okay with clubs refixing Sunday start times to whatever suits them so you should keep an ear to the ground about any match you might be planning to get to on Sunday to make sure it’s on at the time it’s fixed for.

Right, here are the club fixtures for the weekend (home team named first):

Senior Football Championship

  • Group 1: Garrymore v Davitts (Saturday 7.30pm); Breaffy v Claremorris (Sunday 12pm)
  • Group 2: Ballintubber v Charlestown (Saturday 5.30pm); Hollymount/Carramore v Aghamore (Saturday 5.30pm)
  • Group 3: Ballinrobe v Castlebar Mitchels (Saturday 7.30pm); Ballina Stephenites v Crossmolina (Saturday 7.30pm)
  • Group 4: Ballaghaderreen v Kiltane (Sunday 12pm); Ballyhaunis v Knockmore (Sunday 5pm)

Intermediate Football Championship

  • Group 1: Kiltimagh v Moy Davitts (Sunday 12pm); Swinford v Tourmakeady (Sunday 5pm)
  • Group 2: Shrule/Glencorrib v Ardnaree (Sunday 12pm); Castlebar Mitchels B v Westport (Sunday 12pm)
  • Group 3: Burrishoole v Bonniconlon (Saturday 7.30pm); Mayo Gaels v Belmullet (Sunday 12pm)
  • Group 4: The Neale v Islandeady (Sunday 12pm); Kilmaine v Parke (Sunday 6pm, in Parke)

If club football doesn’t do it for you and you want to kick over the traces some more about last Saturday, then the Mayo News podcast might be of interest to you. I’m even in it this week – I’m not sure if that’s a recommendation or not but I guess I’ll leave you to judge that one for yourselves.

  1. The draw for the qualifiers has been confirmed for RTE1 [wireless] at 8.30am on Monday.

    The confirmation of our next opponent should focus things nicely for the next two weeks.

  2. blown away by the brexit thing. At least we have the oul football to distract us for a while.

  3. Please no injuries.
    This week has been bad enough.
    A bad injury or two to follow Caff’s would really be the salt in the wounds.

  4. Willie Joe and everyone, there is a round of the junior championship on too. That’s the competition that Ardnaree won last year on the way to Croke park by the way. All fixtures on mayogaa.ie.

  5. Didn’t post anything since the galway match ,, might do the lads good to get back to their own clubs and friends , , I’d say there was some honest discussions between players and management since ,, both I feel will put their hands up and admit that their were a lot of things that went wrong and really looking forward to their response ,, Mondays draw will be interesting but feel one of the stronger teams would not be a bad thing , caff a huge loss but this group has proven if it gets knocked down it always dusts itself down and goes back at it again ,

  6. Down beaten by Longford. Limerick beat Antrim and Offaly escape London. So we play Longford/Limerick/Offaly and winners of Fermanagh/Wexford

  7. Give us Fermanagh away a tough game that we wlll have to be up for and a match we can learn from if we win

  8. I had thought of the possibility of the Gaelic grounds again. Still, I’d take a handier opponent a home to get back on track
    all the same. Plenty of harder ones down the line.

  9. 1B Qualifier results today

    Offally
    Limerick
    Longford
    Fermanagh

    Mayo can be drawn against one of the above, home draw to be done as well. Draw to be made on Monday morning on Radio 1 after 8.30 news.

  10. Fermanagh away please, never want to see the inside of the Gaelic grounds again. Ever

  11. Was at the two games in South Mayo tonight. Aghamore had a great win against Holly-Carra. Iarla Carty and Fergal Boland were outstanding for the winners, with Alan Freemans free taking exceptional. HollyCarra were best served by Kevin Costello & Darren Coen. Aghamore are without doubt the coming force in Mayo Football. An interesting point from tonights game was that Referee Declan Corcoran awarded both sides penalties in the first half and was overruled on both occasions by his umpires.

    Garrymore overcame Davitts in front of a huge attendance. Davitts had Ronan McNamara at Full Forward and he is quite a handful. They probably overplayed him a little and Garry crowded him out. Caolan Crowe started at Centre Forward and scored 1-2 from play. Shane Nally and Colm Boyle were in direct opposition during the first half and cancelled each other out. Boyle moved to Centre Back and had a very good second half. Nally scored a free from 65 yards at a vital point and one other point from play. Cathal Hennelly is a fine young player from Davitts who could have a big future. Best two players on the field were Trevor Nally and Brendan Cunningham who gave a brilliant display at Midfield for the winners.

  12. Another easy win for Mitchels. Breezed through this group with a game to play.

    Cross beat Ballina in the other game

  13. Crossmolina beat Ballina 1-7 to 7 points, cross found the dog and fight that the badly missed against castlebar! Poor first half where both teams went 13 behind the ball so no surprise that was only 1 point in roughly the first 20 mins. Evan Regan was anonymous, being well handled by the cross defence, Clarke had little to do, could do nothing for the goal as sean kelly was too strong holding off 2 defenders to claim a long ball in and laying it off to Ger haran to bury into the top corner. Cathal carolan lookednear the form that got him called up to the mayo panal a few yrs ago! Great win for Crossmolina and a good result against ballinrobe and we could advice to the quarter finals!

  14. Good reports there posters. I understand also that Barry Moran played for Castlebar, which I think is good news on the county front.

  15. Are the reports of Andy nabbing 3.07 today accurate? That’s a very positive signal of form form our veteran.
