St James were too strong, too organised, and had too much guile for a very disappointing Cortoon Shamrocks outfit last weekend at Tuam Stadium.
Many GAA people in the county were not pleased with Mountbellew/Moylough’s decision to engage in a lengthy appeal process after their defeat to Micheal Breathnach’s. They had been defeated twice, and the feeling was that they could have accepted their lot and moved on.
Following the exciting 1-11 to 2-8 drawn game last weekend in the county football championship between Cortoon-Shamrocks and Mountbellew/Moylough, the county board will be hoping for a big crowd at the replay which takes place this Sunday in Tuam Stadium (4.15pm).
These sides met four weeks ago in the league over in Caltra and Cortoon won by two points, 1-10 to 1-8. Expect another tight game on Sunday.
Previewing any game involving NUIG is difficult because you don’t how many of their marquee players will or won’t be available. However, and this is a prediction of which I am confident, if they have all their top players this Sunday, they will be too strong for Cortoon Shamrocks.
It is a tremendous achievement and they will take a lot of beating in the final. With forwards like Derek Savage, David Warde, Michael Martin, and Mickey Costello, they have the potential to hurt most defences. Likewise guys like Brian Roache and Donal O’Neill - who are both top quality corner backs - and David Finnegan, John Martin, and Brion Gilmore are not easy to get by.
This is most definitely the tie of the round.
