Best wishes to St Patrick’s Dromahair’s Jamie Conlon who will participate in the 2019 TG4 Underdogs series. The show commences tomorrow night (Thursday) at 9.30pm. It is an honour for him personally, his club and his family and we wish him the best of luck on his journey. 

The Connacht Gold Senior Football Championship and Smith Monumentals Intermediate Football Championship move smoothly into the knockout stages with eight matches down for decision next weekend. There is a measure of intrigue attached to all fixtures and it should prove to be an action-packed ‘Super Sunday’ commencing with the IFC derby clash of Annaduff and Bornacoola (Cloone 12 noon) and IFC Ballinaglera v Carrigallen (Drumshanbo 12 noon) and concluding with the ‘Clash of Champions’ Aughawillan and Mohill. who between them have captured the last five Senior Championship titles, in Avantcard Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada at 6pm.

 

Following this evening’s results in the Connacht Gold Leitrim Senior Football Championship, the quarter-final pairings have been decided and these matches will be played on Sunday next, September 15th, at venues and times to be confirmed by CCC Liatroma at a later stage. The Relegation Series pairings have also been decided and these ties are scheduled to take place later in the month.

St Mary’s Kiltoghert 0-14 Mac Diarmada Gaels 1-11

The eagerly awaited Newtowngore Engineering Minor Championship Final between St Mary’s Kiltoghert and Mac Diarmada Gaels ended level this evening at Avantcard Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada. While extra time had been provided for in the 6.30pm fixture, it was deemed unsafe by the referee to continue as darkness descended very quickly at the venue. The replay is set for next Friday evening, September 13th, at the same venue with 6pm throw-in and extra time to be played in the event of a further draw.

As regards the match itself, St Mary’s Kiltoghert held an 0-8 to 0-3 halftime lead but this had been wiped out by the 12th minute of the second period as the Gaels had the better of those earlier exchanges and aided by a goal the scoreline now stood at 0-9 to 1-6. From there to the finish it was nip and tuck all the way as the contest between the county’s two best Minor teams ended level and they must do it all over again.

CCC Liatroma has publicised the schedule of group matches for the Connacht Gold SFC, Smith Monumentals IFC and Vistamed JFC A and B. Competitions commence on Friday, July 26th as the 2018 County Senior Champions Aughawillan face-off with Aughnasheelin in Cloone at 8.30pm. CCC has also made it clear that in order to facilitate people booking time off from work etc. there can be no deviation from this schedule. Games on Friday nights will be fixed for 8.30 pm in Cloone. Saturday games will be fixed for 5.30 pm and 7 pm up to quarter-final stage. Sunday games will be fixed for 12 noon, 1.30 pm and 5 pm.

Fenagh Cup awarded to Leitrim SFC Winners

 

First presented in 1966 the Fenagh Cup has since rested in Aughawillan for the winters of 1976, 1978, 1983, 1984, 1989, 1992, 1993,1994, 2014 and 2016. Aughawillan, then trading under the banner of Kiltyhugh won their first title in 1923. Mohill who previously won titles in 1890, 1914 and 1929 got to harbour the Fenagh Cup for the winters of 1971, 2006, 2015 and 2017. Where will it spend the winter of 2018? Throw in is at 3pm tomorrow in Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada. The Connacht Gold Senior Football Championship Final is preceded by the Smith Monumentals Intermediate Football Final between Annaduff and Fenagh St. Caillin’s at 1pm.

Fenagh Cup

The stage is set for our County Senior and Intermediate Finals on Sunday next in Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada. The Connacht Gold SFC Final brings together the two best championship teams of the past five seasons. Between them, Aughawillan (2014 and 2016) and Mohill (2015 and 2017) have shared the last four titles and Sunday’s battle will crown the better championship team in their best of five years mini-series. It should be some contest and one that is eagerly awaited!

The Smith Monumentals IFC decider brings together Annaduff and Fenagh St Caillin’s who have proved to be the best teams in this year’s competition. Annaduff, energised in 2018 following their relegation from senior ranks in 2017 will be determined for an immediate return to senior ranks and Fenagh St Caillin’s, who have had brilliant underage success over the most recent part of the last decade, will be hoping to continue their upward curve. It will be a fascinating duel.

Smith Monumentals IFC Final at Pairc Seán Mac Diarmada 1.00pm

Referee: Kevin Mallon (Bornacoola)

Connacht Gold SFC Final at Pairc Seán Mac Diarmada 3.00pm
