The poll I put up prior to yesterday’s club SFC semi-finals on who’ll win the county championship this year produced a decisive enough result, with the majority going for Castlebar Mitchels while Breaffy also attracted a fair bit of support. With the field now cut to just two it makes sense, I reckon, to re-run the poll, not least in light of how both of yesterday’s victorious semi-finalists performed.
Castlebar may be firm favourites with the bookies for Sunday week’s decider – Paddy Power have them at 2/5 – but yesterday’s sluggish win over Knockmore didn’t sound like it was the form of champions and if Barry Moran hasn’t shaken off whatever the injury was that ruled him out yesterday it could be argued that they’ll struggle to cope with the O’Shea-powered first time finalists from Breaffy. Or maybe the lads from out the road will get stage-fright on the big day?
What do you reckon: who’ll do it now?
