Connacht Clubs weekend

This coming Sunday is a big day for 2 of our club teams as both Glencar/Manorhamilton and Aughnasheelin head for Markievicz Park to participate in their respective Connacht Championship club games.

Aughnasheelin meet St Molaise Gaels who claimed the Sligo Intermediate championship last Saturday against Coolaney/Mullinabreen.  A full report of this game is available on   The winners of this game will go on to participate in the semifinal against the Galway Champions on November 2nd.  The Mayo and Roscommon champions also meet in the semifinal on the same date.   Aughnasheelin managed a draw against neighbours Kiltubrid in the league game at the weekend and this game will hopefully help them shake off the effects of recent celebrations as they prepare for their throw-in at 1:30pm  on Sunday.

Glencar/Manorhamilton, the new County champions, must also put their celebrations on hold as they form part of the double header in Sligo.  Eastern Harps are their opponents and Easter Harps took over as Sligo Champions one hour after Glencar/Manor claimed their crown.  Manor would also have benefited from last weekends league action and theyve kept to their winning ways with a victory on Saturday evening over Annaduff.  The premliminary game is scheduled for 3:15pm and the winners will meet the Mayo champions on Nov 9th.
