Killala are looking to pick up their second Connacht junior championship in four years this Sunday in Dr Hyde Park, Roscommon when they take on Kilglass Gaels from Roscommon. The north Mayo men who claimed the Mayo title after a nail-biting final against The Neale saw off the challenge of Eslin from Leitrim in the sem-final, while their opponents received a walk-over to get to this stage, thanks to the Galway championship not being finished in time.
On Sunday, Killala will look to book their place in the All Ireland Junior Football championship final when they take on Liverpool side John Mitchels in Carrick on Shannon. This will be the second time in two years the north Mayo men have been within touching distance of Croke Park and the All Ireland final. In 2006 they fell short against Greencastle at this stage and they will be aiming to put things to right this weekend.
Last Sunday in Dr Hyde Park in Roscommon, Killala captain Karl Dooher clutched the Frank Reynolds Memorial cup after the north Mayo men blew away the Roscommon champions by ten points. For the second time in three years Killala were crowned junior champions of Connacht to round off a successful year for the men from north Mayo. Marcus Hannick was the top scorer on the day finishing off with five points, all from placed balls, while James Ruddy grabbed their goal 21 minutes into the contest after some neat build up play which put them into a six-point lead, one which they never looked like loosing. Rory Hannick picked up the man of the match award for his tireless display in the engine room alongside Noel Ryan on an afternoon which was not designed for football in deep winter but that will be of little concern to the men from Killala who now have an All Ireland semi-final to look forward to in the new year.
