More club dates for your diaries, this time involving matches with some silverware on offer.
This coming Saturday at MacHale Park, the Connacht Intermediate and Junior football finals are being contested. The county has skin in both games, with Kilmaine bidding for provincial glory in the JFC decider while neighbours The Neale have their sights set on the Connacht IFC title.
First up at MacHale Park on Saturday will be Kilmaine who take on St Michael’s of Sligo in the Junior final. That game throws in at 3pm.
Then, once the generator gets revving and the lights come on it’s the turn of The Neale who are set to contest the Intermediate final against Galway’s Oughterard. Throw-in is 5pm in that one.
On Sunday it’s hurling that takes centre stage. That afternoon Tooreen are heading back once more to Athleague, this time to play Kinvara of Galway in the final of the Connacht Intermediate club hurling Championship. Throw-in at Athleague is 2pm on Sunday.
Finally, some advance notice of a match of considerable importance that’s fixed for Sunday week (24th November). This is the LGFA All-Ireland Junior football final, in which CL MacHale Rovers will be taking on Donoughmore from Cork.
This All-Ireland decider has been fixed for Duggan Park in Ballinasloe where throw-in on Sunday week is set for 2pm. No doubt there’ll be a big North Mayo following heading for Ballinasloe then but, for those who can’t make it, the final is being streamed live on Facebook by the LGFA – details on that here.
