Knockmore manager Nigel Reape may have a future in fortune telling after the way the names came out of the hat in the semi-final draw for the Mayo GAA Treanlaur Catering Senior Football Championship on Sunday evening. Asked only a few minutes after the full time whistle of his sides win over Ballintubber who would he like to get, he signaled out Castlebar Mitchels as the side he wanted in the semi-finals and a couple of minutes later when the draw was completed he got his wish. Knockmore and the Mitchels will go toe to toe next Sunday in Elverys MacHale Park at a time to be confirmed at the time of writing in one of the senior semi-finals. The other last four pairing is the meeting of Breaffy and Charlestown who will square off on Sunday in the same venue, with the time and referee appointment to be determined shortly. The meeting of Cill Chomain and Ardnaree in the final of the Mayo GAA junior football championship had been penciled in for next Sunday at 2pm in MacHale Park according to the Mayo GAA website on Sunday evening, with the official county board twitter account also confirming that the senior semi-finals will be in the same venue on the same day, so a triple header of football looks in store next Sunday in Castlebar.
The draw was also made for the semi-finals of the Mayo GAA u21 football championships, in the A championship Moy Davitts and Claremorris will meet in one semi-final, with Aghamore and Castlebar Mitchels meeting in the other. The B championship last four has paired Louisburgh against the winners of Davitts and Kiltane and Hollymount-Carramore against the winners of Breaffy and Ballyhaunis. The C championship semi-final draw has set up the meeting of Belmullet and Tourmakeady with Ardagh and Burrishoole meeting on the other side of the draw.
