There is a massive weekend of action for the Maigh Cuilinn hurling and football clubs this Saturday and Sunday, as both teams are in championship action in the space of twenty-four hours.
As the evenings become shorter the action on the field in the club championships in Mayo gets more and more serious. This weekend just gone Breaffy, Castlebar and Ballintubber all booked their places in the semi-final of the senior championship with wins over Garrymore, Aghamore and Ballina Stephenites respectively. The fourth quarter-final which was due to take place this weekend between Knockmore and Kiltane in Ballina was postponed and will now take place next Saturday, October 3 at 5pm in James Stephens Park. The winners of that game will meet Castlebar Mitchels in one semi-final, with the all west Mayo dual of the defending champions Ballintubber and the pretenders to the crown from Breaffy meeting in the other. Those semi-finals are due to take place on Sunday, October 11.
It was always going to be a tough ask for Aghamore to turn over the 2013 champions in this game, they needed to keep things tight and tidy at the back and try and build up a lead they could hold on to going down the home stretch and hope that it would have triggered some doubts in the Mitchels minds.
Cork fully merited their 1-13 to 0-9 victory over Galway in Sunday's All-Ireland Senior Camogie final at Croke Park.
The Mayo u21 hurlers head east on Saturday as they enter unchartered waters in the All-Ireland u21B Championship with an away assignment against the Royals in Trim. Mayo have had a progressive season at U21 level this summer, having beaten both Sligo and Roscommon to claim the Connacht GAA u21B title and pick up the Hogan Couriers Cup in the process. The confidence gained from winning their first Connacht u21 title since 2006 was a major bonus to Mayo, as they then overcame Donegal in the All-Ireland quarter final in Letterkenny a fortnight ago. The Westerners came out on top by 1-14 to 1-6 in a physical encounter - the Mayo goal coming from Corey Scahill (Castlebar).
