The seniors have a weekend off for a change and in their stead it’s the county’s Junior side that takes centre-stage. It’s been a while – two months, to be exact – since Seán McLoughlin’s charges won the Connacht JFC title but tomorrow they’re back in action, playing for a place in the All-Ireland final.
Tomorrow’s All-Ireland JFC semi-final sees them up against Wexford at O’Connor Park, Tullamore, where throw-in has been fixed for 2pm. The bookies have priced this one as a toss-up, with Paddy Power offering both teams at evens to prevail.
We named our team and short while ago this evening and full details on the starting fifteen and subs are here. It’s good to see that, with a number of lads who played in the provincial campaign no longer available, several of the victorious U21 All-Ireland team have been drafted in to bolster the Juniors’ ranks.
Best of luck to the lads as they aim to seal the county’s second All-Ireland final appearance in a row at this level.
