Corofin and Milltown have been drawn to face each other in one of the upcoming county football semi-finals, while in the other semi-final, Barna will face St Michael’s in a novel pairing after both sides had impressive victories over Caherlistrane and Annaghdown respectively last weekend.
The benefit of the addition of former Kildare star James Kavanagh to Milltown’s senior football championship challenge was clear to see last Saturday evening at Pearse Stadium, as John Concannon’s side gave Cárna-Caiseal a good trimming, on a score-line of 3-14 to 0-5. Kavanagh kicked one terrific point in the first half and also notched a few frees in the second, but it was his work-rate, link-play and overall contribution to the cause that caught the eye. Experienced scoring forwards are hard to come by at the moment, and Kavanagh can be a really key player for the “Scans” as their season progresses.

Milltown, under the guidance of Cathal Sheridan, defeated Tuam Stars on a score-line of 2-5 to 0-10 last Saturday in Tuam Stadium in the 2011 senior league final.
The first of this year’s county football semi-finals takes place this Sunday (4.15pm) at Tuam Stadium between Milltown and Corofin.
Milltown followed up their one-point win over Caherlistrane with a comprehensive 1-14 to 0-8 victory over a disappointing An Cheathrú Rua in Pearse Stadium on Sunday to qualify for the last four in the race for the county title.
Following a hectic weekend of football action last Saturday and Sunday, three of the county football quarter-finals are down for decision this Sunday. There is a double header in Pearse Stadium with Carraroe taking on Milltown at 3.45pm and Salthill/Knocknacarra facing Moycullen at 5.30pm. Claregalway, who saw off NUIG last weekend, take on championship favourites Corofin in Tuam at 5.30pm. The outstanding quarter-final between Tuam Stars and either Cortoon Shamrocks or Mountbellew/Moylough and Micheal Breathnachs could not be fixed due to the ongoing shenanigans with Mountbellew/Moylough’s appeal.
Fourteen of the 16 teams left in the county championship are scheduled to be in action this weekend. There is a double header at Pearse Stadium on Saturday evening with the other five games fixed for Sunday. The Cortoon Shamrocks and Micheal Breathnachs fixture cannot go ahead as Mountbellew/Moylough continue with their ill thought out appeal process. They have been beaten twice on the field of play this season already and they should just move on from those defeats. Four of Sunday’s games are down as double headers at Corofin and Tuam, with Carraroe and Annaghdown on in Pearse Stadium. There will be extra time in any of the games that end in a draw.
