Quick recap on club action

This is just a quick one, to summarise the weekend’s club action and provide links to reports on the matches that took place.

The Mayo Advertiser is the place to head to if it’s match reports you’re looking for. Here they are: Breaffy/Garrymore, Castlebar/Aghamore, Ballintubber/Ballina, Killala/Achill.

The same paper has a handy round-up on where things are at on the club championship front after the weekend’s action, which is here. As this report confirms, the postponed SFC quarter-final between Kiltane and Knockmore will now go ahead this coming Saturday (October 3rd) at James Stephens Park, Ballina, where throw-in will be at 5pm. The winners of that one will face Castlebar Mitchels in the semi-final while Ballintubber will meet Breaffy in the other penultimate round tie. Both semi-finals are down for decision on October 11th.

Latest odds on the senior county championship are here, with most of the money so far on Ballintubber (priced at 6/5) and Castlebar (6/4).

Also on next weekend is the SFC relegation play-off final. Shrule/Glencorrib, beaten yesterday by Ballyhaunis, face Ballinrobe on Sunday at Hollymount (throw-in 12pm), where the losers will drop down to intermediate level for next year.

The intermediate semis are also on next Sunday, with a MacHale Park double-header featuring Moy Davitts v The Neale (2pm) and Belmullet v Hollymount/Carramore (4pm). The junior final, meanwhile, has been fixed for October 10th at James Stephens Park, where Killala will meet North Mayo neighbours Ardnaree at 4pm.

There was plenty of club action across the country over the weekend too. From a Mayo perspective, the Connacht matches were obviously the ones of most interest with the defeat of St Brigid’s in Roscommon particularly noteworthy. Brigid’s were aiming to win the Rossie club title for the sixth successive year but Clann na Gael – managed by Paul Curran, who was in charge of Ballymun Kickhams when Brigid’s beat them in the All-Ireland club final two years ago – pulled off a major shock to oust the champs by 0-14 to 0-12. Clann will now meet Padraig Pearses in the final.

The 42 have a round-up of all the weekend’s main club results – here.

Finally, speaking of Ballymun, we’re gearing up here in the capital for the next episode in the Dermo Meets Philly Show which is due to be aired shortly. This Dublin SFC last-sixteen (Round 2) encounter between St Vincents and Ballymun throws in at 5.30pm at Parnell Park next Saturday.
