One man who will have surely appreciated Hollymount-Carramore captain Darren Coen's sideline effort that he floated over the bar in their All Ireland semi-final win a fortnight ago is the man who is charged with plotting Coen's downfall in Croke Park on Saturday afternoon, Kerry legend Maurice Fitzgearld is in charge of the St Mary's from Cahirciveen and they stand in the way of Hollymount-Carramore's attempt to make history.
Darren Coen played the captain’s part on Sunday in Breffni Park in Cavan scoring eight points as Hollymount-Carramore booked their place in the All Ireland intermediate club final in Croke Park.
Just 60 minutes stand between Hollymount-Carramore and a dream date in Croke Park and a place in the All Ireland Club Intermediate Football Championship final. On Sunday, the south Mayo amalgamations supporters will be making the 190 mile round trip to Breffni Park in Cavan for their side's meeting with Down outfit Loughlinisland.
They would have never assumed it was was going to be easy, but the willingness to dig out a result when things seemed to be going against them against Melvin Gaels is something that Hollymount-Carramore will have been delighted to have shown on the field a fortnight ago. On Sunday the south Mayo men have the chance to create another little bit of history for themselves when they take on Moycullen to be crowned the intermediate kings of Connacht.
Whatever training sessions that Hollymount-Carramore put in over the next fortnight preparing for the Connacht Intermediate Football Championship Final against Moycullen, it’ll be nothing compared to the battle they came through on Sunday in MacHale Park.
It wasn’t a classic, by any means, but Hollymount-Carramore won’t care a thing about that. When they hit the training field on the cold and wet nights in south Mayo at the start of this year, there was only one objective in their minds and they achieved that in MacHale Park on Sunday. After being on the losing side in last years final, they were determined to put that wrong to right and they did that with a hard working performance.
