This coming weekend is a busy one for provincial club Championship matches. Here’s the list of games in which Mayo clubs are involved.
In women’s football, Knockmore are contesting the LGFA Connacht SFC final. They’re up against reigning provincial and All-Ireland champions Kilkerrin-Clonberne of Galway in this decider, which will be played at the Swinford Amenity Park on Sunday. Throw-in is 1pm and the link for purchasing tickets for the game is here.
Ballina Stephenites are in Connacht SFC action the previous evening. They’re playing Fulham Irish in the provincial quarter-final, with this game throwing in under the lights at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park on Saturday, where throw-in is 6pm. The link for purchasing tickets is here and the link for purchasing access to the live stream of the match is here.
We’ve a new podcast episode hot off the presses, by the way, in which we look ahead to Saturday evening’s match. On it Mike chats with Stephenites coach Eanna Casey and with the only Mayo player on the Fulham Irish squad, Liam Staunton from Westport. The pod is up now on Patreon, details on accessing it are here.
Kilmeena also have provincial fish to fry this weekend at MacHale Park. They take on Annaduff of Leitrim on Sunday in the Connacht Intermediate football quarter-final, where throw-in is 2pm. The link for purchasing tickets is here.
Finally, you’ll probably recall that Tooreen were meant to play the London champions this weekend over in Ruislip in the Connacht Intermediate hurling semi-final. Indeed, many Tooreen supporters had already booked travel and accommodation for the weekend over there in anticipation of the game. A protracted dispute has, however, held up the London final, which was due to be contested by St Gabriel’s and Brothers Pearse but which still hasn’t been played.
Two postponements and a DRA appeal later, the Connacht Council have now understandably pulled the plug on involving a London representative in this year’s provincial championship. Instead, Tooreen have been given a bye into the Connacht final, in which they’ll face Ballinderreen of Galway. That game will be played in Athleague on on Sunday, 26th November at 1.30pm.
The best of luck to all the Mayo teams in action this coming weekend.
