Three Mayo sides will go into action in the Connacht championship this weekend looking to book their places in the Connacht final. Carnacon, who are old hands at this level, will be defending their Connacht and All Ireland titles on the line on Saturday in Leitrim when they take on the Leitrim champions Aughawillan in the senior semi-final at 4pm in Leitrim Gaels Community pitch. The vastly experienced Carnacon side will go into the game as hot favourites with either Geevagh from Sligo or Corofin from Galway waiting for the winners in the final.
The other two Mayo sides in action on the weekend sees Westport, who were crowned Mayo junior champions following a 3-7 to 0-7 win over Lahardane at the tail end of September, take on another Leitrim side, this time Dromahair in Swinford, at 5pm on Saturday. The Covie girls will be in for a tough fight to make it to the final.
Breaffy, who only last weekend picked up the Mayo intermediate title following a hard fought win over Cill Chomain in Crossmolina, will be straight back in action on Saturday afternoon when they face the challenge of Galway side Clonbur at 1pm in Clonbur. The west Mayo girls, who had to fight hard to overcome the Cill Chomain challenge, will have to have been practising their shooting over the week as they kicked numerous wides in a game they should have won comfortably.
