They now progress to play Oranmore-Maree in the first semi-final with Knockmore from Mayo taking on Oran from Roscommon in the other semi-final.

The Connacht GAA Minor A Club Football Championship will see the winners from Sligo, St. Mary’s take on Leitrim Champions, St. Manachan’s in the provincial quarter final this Sunday, 1st November, in Kent park Sligo. The winners of this fixture will face Galway’s Salthill/Knocknacarra in the first of the semi-finals. The second semi-final will pit Claremorris(Mayo) against Roscommon champions Padraig Pearses. The Connacht GAA Minor A Club Football Championship trophy is named after the late Fr. Oliver Hughes who dedicated so much of his life to developing footballers through his involvement with various clubs and of course the famed St. Jarlaths.

In commenting on the competitions, John Tobin said, ‘I am looking forward to these games and I have no doubt that we will see football of a high standard, giving further evidence of the enormous work being carried out with the young players within their clubs. We have a very strong base of coaching within the province and this competition provides clubs with an opportunity to compete at a higher level’.
