All 16 runners and riders in this year's Mayo Senior Football Championship have been waiting for this weekend to arrive for a while now. Saturday will see a full slate of action taking place all over the county, with Ballintubber the defending champions the side to beat again this year.
Ballintubber booked their place in the Connacht Senior Club Football Championship final last weekend with a big win over Aughawillan in Carrick-on-Shannon.
Getting out of the intermediate championship is one of the toughest things to do - just ask Burrishoole or Belmullet, who will be face-to-face on Saturday evening, with that prize up for grabs.
Burrishoole and Belmullet booked their places in the Mayo GAA Intermediate championship final with hard fought wins over The Neale and Kitlimagh respectively on Sunday afternoon.
And then there were four. Sunday afternoon will see the final four teams left in the Mayo GAA Intermediate Championship battle it out for a spot in the final of this year's competition in an exciting double header in MacHale Park.
Since the last time that these two neighbours came together in the senior championship, Breaffy have won their two league meetings, a 2-13 to 0-7 win in 2014, and a 3-9 to 1-12 victory in the spring of this year. But it is the meeting before those two that was the last big one, with Mitchels claiming their 28th senior title on a rain soaked day back in 2013.
If Breaffy are going to claim their first ever senior county title, they are certainly going to earn it. After topping a group that included fellow semi-finalists Knockmore, they saw off arguably the fourth best team in the county in Garrymore in their quarter-final win. On Sunday they backed that up with a steamrolling of the defending county champions Ballintubber to set up a final on the bank holiday weekend against fellow local rivals Castlebar Mitchels. This will be a repeat of the 2013 final between the sides, with a few little angles thrown into the mix.
