It’s Friday evening already, with more Championship action taking place over the next few days. There’s no men’s football this weekend, though the fixture details for next weekend have already been confirmed (details here), and instead the focus over the next two days is on Championship matches in hurling and in women’s football.
In the LGFA Senior Championship, it’s semi-final weekend. Defending champions Burrishoole are already gone so, for the third year in a row, there’s going to be a different winner, a fourth different winner, in fact, if Carnacon don’t manage to reclaim a title they used to win for fun not that long ago.
The semi-final line-up for this year sees Carnacon travel to Westport, while Knockmore entertain Kilmovee Shamrocks. Two fascinating battles these are likely to be, involving recent champions on the one hand against rising competitors on the other. Both semi-finals throw in on Sunday at 11am.
There’s also Round 4 group stage action in the LGFA Junior B Championship on this weekend. These two games are in Group C, with Ballinrobe at home to Islandeady and Carnacon’s B team playing Kiltane at Clogher. 11am tomorrow (Saturday) is the the start time for both matches.
In the hurling, meanwhile, Round 3 of the Senior Championship takes place tomorrow evening. Castlebar Mitchels take on Tooreen at Ballyvary, while Ballyhaunis play St Ciarán’s at Josie Munnelly Park. Both matches throw in at 5pm tomorrow and match programmes are available here.
The best of luck to all the teams in Championship action this weekend.
