When the final whistle is blown in McHale Park on Sunday, one team in white will be celebrating claiming the intermediate championship and promotion to the senior championship for next year. But will it be the white and green men from Burrishoole or the white and black clad side from the Gaeltacht in Tourmakeady.

The intermediate football championship has been a graveyard for many a man who tried to predict the eventual winners of the competition for many a year. This grade is often so evenly matched that the vast majority of the 16 sides which start off at the beginning of the year could end up with the Sweeney Cup. The final four this year all can lay legitimate claims to being in with a very good shot of claiming the title, and by Saturday at 7pm we should know the final pairing. Things get under way at the county grounds when Burrishoole and Kiltimagh go head to head at 4pm, with Tourmakeady and Belmullet rounding off proceedings at 5.30pm.

The battle to escape up from the intermediate championship will be whittled down to eight sides after the weekend when the final round of group games conclude. In section one Belmullet and Kiltimagh occupy the top spot on three points each, and both sides will fancy their chances of making progress after the weekend’s action. Kiltimagh host bottom of the group Mayo Gaels, while Belmullet have a tougher task at home to Bonniconlon, who can leapfrog Belmullet into the knock-out stages with a win. However it is hard to look past the side who made it to the semi-final last year, especially with them having home advantage.
