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.
