Cortoon Shamrocks v Caltra (Sunday 2pm, Tuam Stadium)

These sides met four weeks ago in the league over in Caltra and Cortoon won by two points, 1-10 to 1-8. Expect another tight game on Sunday.

Caltra without Michael Meehan are a completely different proposition and his continued absence is a real cause of concern for all football supporters in the county. Until he returns, and fingers crossed it will be sooner rather than later, his club will look to Michael Kelly, Shane Hogan, Kevin Killilea and Marcus O’Neill to keep the umpires busy.

Cortoon pushed Salthill all the way in their two-point defeat in the first round and they need players like Derek Savage, Donal O’Neill, David Warde, Darragh Glynn, Paul Varley, Fergal Heverin, David Finnegan, Mickey Costello and Adrian McDonald to drive them to a win in this tie.

The fact that current Caltra boss, Barry Downey was the Shamrocks manager in 2008 when they got to the county final adds some added spice to this contest.

6/1 is a poor price for a draw, but it could be the way to go on this one.

Silke’s call: A draw.
