Knockmore aiming for back-to-back LGFA titles

In what’s a packed weekend of club Championship action, Mayo LGFA have set up camp at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Bekan, where a whole series of deciders are being played out.

Top billing on the programme goes to the Senior final on Sunday. Champions Knockmore – who dethroned Carnacon last year and beat the former champions again in this year’s semi-final – are aiming to emulate the club’s men, by claiming their second county title in a row.

Up against them in Sunday’s final are Burrishoole, in what’s a first ever Senior final appearance by the West Mayo side, who won the Intermediate title back in 2016. They got the better of neighbours Westport in this year’s semi-final.

Michael Gallagher of the Mayo News has a good preview pice on the final here. Podcast club members can also listen to a bonus pod that’s online now, in which Mike Finnerty chats with Carnacon and Mayo player, Fiona McHale about Sunday’s decider and much more besides. Join the club here.

Sunday’s LGFA SFC decider throws in at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence on Sunday at 4pm. It’ll be preceded on the day by the Intermediate final between Louisburgh and Charlestown. That one throws in at 2pm in Bekan.

  1. Two fabulous semis. Standard in Mayo ladies football is very high. Hard to see past Knockmore but would be brilliant to see Burrishoole take the title.

  2. Best of luck to all teams out this weekend. Knockmore have done excellently to make it back to back finals especially being down 3 key players from last years historic win.
    Burrishoole had 6 or 7 to spare over them in league I think so will have it all on to try and retain title.
    Louisburgh and Charlestown also doing excellently to be in intermediate final, a competition that includes the likes of large amalgamations like Kilmoremoy (Ballina, Ardnaree and Bonniconlon)

  3. Great to see the ever rising standards in lgfa and should be some great games this weekend. A couple of gripes now. The timing. All the lgfa finals on the same weekend as the mens semis makes no sense. About time the proposed amalgamation of the two codes came about. Surely we could have a weekend for the ladies and the mens games because I believe most fans are interested in both. 2nd moan is the venue. COE is brilliant for staging loads of games with all weather pitches playable when most grounds are out of action in bad weather. At present most grounds are playable and Bekan is not spectator friendly and certainly doesn’t allow for an exciting atmosphere that these games deserve. Good luck to all involved especially Aghamore and Charlestown.

  4. Best of luck to all the ladies’ teams today, they’ve put in an immense amount of training to get to the finals, unfortunately only one winner but the losers should hang in there for next year, just look at Meath seniors, beaten by around 20 pts against Dublin in the 2020 Leinster champ, came back fighting in 2021 and beat Dublin in the final. I’d love to see Burrishoole win, it would mean ladies football in Mayo is getting stronger.
