The draws for the SFC and IFC quarter-finals as well as the JFC semi-finals were made the other evening and fixture details for these ties, as well as related relegation play-offs, have since been confirmed. All of these ties are down for decision the weekend after next, i.e. 21st and 22nd of September.
Here’s what’s in store that weekend in the Senior Championship.
In the Intermediate Championship here are the fixtures set to be determined.
As you may have noticed, there are two MacHale Park double-headers among those list of fixtures. On the Saturday this features Ballaghaderreen v Davitts and Breaffy v Ballina Stephenites, while on Sunday it’s Burrishoole v Crossmolina followed by Castlebar Mitchels v Knockmore. While these are attractive pairings for punters to get to those of you who can’t will no doubt be interested to know that Mayo GAA TV will be streaming both – details here.
Onto the Junior Championship, where the fixtures are as follows.
If you can’t hold out until next weekend – and the little matter that’s set to be decided at Croke Park on Saturday evening doesn’t do it for you – don’t forget that this Sunday in Tooreen the hurlers of Ballyhaunis and Castlebar Mitchels will contest the county SHC semi-final. Throw-in at Adrian Freeman Memorial Park is 1pm on Sunday.
That’s it for now. Back in the afternoon with a new episode of the Mayo News football podcast. We haven’t gone away, you know.
