This coming weekend, just a week out from Christmas, Tooreen are once more back in club Championship action. This time the match in question for the Connacht IHC champions is the All-Ireland semi-final and their opponents on Saturday are Liatroim Fontenoys from Down.
The match takes place at Breffni Park, Cavan, where throw-in is 1pm. The good news is that the current bitterly cold spell is forecast to be over by then, with the rain that’s set to follow in its wake not arriving until Sunday.
The bad news is that there doesn’t seem to be any plan to stream the game live. Midwest will, though, be providing full live radio commentary on it.
If you’re planning on making the journey to the match, tickets for it are available to purchase online – details here.
In this week’s Mayo News, Michael Gallagher has two feature pieces on Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final. One focuses on Tooreen players Seán Kenny and Daniel Huane (here), while the other features another Tooreen player, John Cassidy (here).
Saturday’s game is obviously a huge one for Tooreen, who made it to the same stage in last year’s All-Ireland IHC. They lost out to Naas in last year’s semi-final but hopes are high that they’ll go one better this time around. The best of luck to them as they shoot for a place in the final.
