Draw throws up plenty of interesting contests

GAA: Club Championship Draws

While the first round of the action in this year’s Trenalaur Catering Mayo GAA Senior Football Championship may be a good few months away, there was lots of interest in the draws held in Elvery's MacHale Park last night for the group stages. Following the draw for each group, a separate draw was made between the four sides to determine their order in the group to ensure there was a random factor in deciding which teams got two home games in the group stages.

Current champions Castlebar Mitchels, who are preparing for their big All Ireland semi-final showdown with Dr Crokes from Kerry in a few weeks, were drawn in group one with local rivals Ballintubber, former kingpins Crossmolina, and Shrule Glencorrib. The first round of games will see Ballintubber host Castlebar Mitchels and Shrule Glencorrib host Crossmolina Deel Rovers.

Group two was evenly spilt between north and south Mayo, with two teams from each division in the group, with last year’s semi-finalists Knockmore the number one seeds in the draw being joined by Garrymore, Ballinrobe, and Kiltane who are All Ireland final bound in the intermediate championship in two weeks time. Group two will open up with Ballinrobe travelling to Garrymore and Kiltane hosting Knockmore.

In group three there is a clash of two big guns from out east, with beaten semi-finalists from last year Charlestown squaring up against the 2012 champions Ballaghaderreen, with Westport and Davitts also joining them in the mix. The first round of games will see Ballaghaderreen playing host to Davitts, while Charlestown will head south down the N5 to face Westport.

The final group has put together last year’s beaten finalists Breaffy with Ballina Stephenites, Claremorris, and Aghamore. Breaffy will welcome Aghamore in round one while Claremorris and Ballina Stephenites will do battle in south Mayo.

The draws for the Egan Jewellers Intermediate Football Championship and the Breaffy House Resort Junior Football Championship also took place on the night.
