u21 championships still going as Christmas looms

The Mayo GAA U21 football championships are still to be completed just 13 days before the new year kicks in. Last weekend's snowy weather saw both of the two u21 A semi-finals that were down for decision postponed due to pitches being unplayable at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan. The first of the semi-finals had been due to take place last Sunday morning between Aghamore and Kiltimagh at 10am, but the conditions overnight saw the pitch being deemed unplayable. The second semi-final between Claremorris and Moy Davitts was due to take place in the same venue later that day but the condition of the pitch hadn't improved enough for the games to go ahead.

Both of the games have been refixed for the same venue this weekend with the Aghamore v Kiltimagh game now fixed for tomorrow night, Saturday, December 19 at 8.30pm in Bekan and the second semi-final between Moy Davitts and Claremorris on Sunday, December 20 at 2.30pm. Also taking place this weekend is the u21B final between Davitts and Swinford which will throw in at 5pm tomorrow evening, Saturday, December 20 in Elverys MacHale Park.

The controversial u21c championship, which had already seen replays ordered in both semi-finals due to various issues also did not take place last weekend, with the county board announcing last Friday night that the games had been postponed because of "circumstances beyond our control" No new dates have been fixed for these games as you yet.
