Sunday’s county final between Ballintubber and Ballaghaderreen should draw a decent enough sized crowd to McHale Park but for those who can’t make it there on the day (and that’ll include me) the good news is that TG4 will be covering the match live. Not only that, I’m almost sure that they’ll be broadcasting it in HD as well so if you live in UPC-land you should be able to see the action in startling clarity on channel 137.
It’s a double header at McHale Park on Sunday with the day’s curtain-raiser, the Junior final between The Neale and Ardnaree, throwing in at 1.45pm (not 2pm as has been advertised – the earlier start is needed because of the TV coverage) while the showdown for the Moclair Cup is set to get underway at 3.30pm.
Elsewhere on the club scene this weekend, the crunch relegation play-off between Kiltane and Ballina – previewed here by Ed McGreal in the Mayo News – takes place on Sunday in Crossmolina with a midday throw-in. Later the same afternoon, newly-crowned county Intermediate champions Charlestown take on Galway’s Carna-Cashel in the quarter-final of the Connacht Intermediate club championship. That one is down for decision at Pearse Stadium in Salthill where throw-in takes place at 2.30pm.
