The polls run here on the blog about the likely winners of this year’s Senior football Championship have been good fun. Castlebar Mitchels were the people’s choice in the first poll run before the action got underway but then in the second poll run after the group stages it was Westport who were favoured to go all the way and seal back-to-back titles.
Breaffy enjoyed little support in both polls but they’re still standing, having knocked out Westport yesterday. Mitchels, having survived a veritable near-death experience against Ballintubber, are still there too, and it’s now between them and Breaffy for one of the places in this year’s final.
On the other side of the draw, Ballina Stephenites – who have more county titles than everyone else but haven’t won the Moclair Cup since 2007 – and Knockmore, back-to-back winners in 2020 and 2021, will contest the other semi-final. Both of these North Mayo heavyweights have been going about their business with calm efficiency so far in this campaign and both of them will rightly now harbour high hopes for claiming the silverware.
So, which of the four left standing look best equipped to win it out? Go on, it’s time for another vote on the likely winners of the Moclair Cup this year.
