Castlebar Mitchell’s (aet) 3-13
Reigning county, provincial, and All-Ireland club champions St Brigid’s put their title on they line as the take on neighbours Clann na nGael in what promises to be an intriguing county semi-final. The current champs against the former kingpins. What a pity it is not being played in the south of the county where a huge neutral crowd from the Athlone area would surely be in attendance.
If the bookies and the people on the street are to be believed John Evans would be better advised to bring his side for a swim in Hodson Bay rather than to their Connacht semi-final meeting with Mayo in Castlebar on Sunday where they are expected to be very much out of their depth.
If at first you don’t succeed, try and try and try again. The footballers of St Brigid’s have enjoyed quite a bit of success over the past decade. Yet the holy grail of winning a club All-Ireland has thus far eluded them.
A hugely impressive second-half performance to which Ballaghadereen simply had no answer, saw Roscommon champions St Brigid’s secure the Connacht title for the third year running.
The last time a Mayo side claimed the Connacht Club Senior Football Championship it was Ballina Stephenites on a wet and wild day in James Stephens Park in 2007 and St Brigid’s were the opposition. In the past four years the Roscommon men have gone on to claim the last two titles and are looking to make it three in a row and their fourth over all, this Sunday in McHale Park, and in the process, draw Roscommon level on 13 titles each with Mayo in the overall roll of honour. However standing in their way are a Ballaghaderreen side who are looking to claim their first provincial title and Mayo’s 14th drawing them level with Galway on the number of titles won on the roll of honour.
An attractive and intriguing Connacht club semi-final takes place on Sunday at Pearse Stadium (2.30pm) when Salthill/Knocknacarra take on the current provincial club champions St Brigid’s (Roscommon).
Salthill/Knocknacarra enjoy a 100 per cent history of success in the Connacht club championship and they will put that impressive record on the line in four weeks’ time when they face either Roscommon’s St Brigid's or Leitrim’s Melvin Gaels on Sunday November 11 in the Connacht club semi-final.
Connacht club SFC final
With a sell out crowd of 30,000 expected to head to Hyde Park on Sunday, there will be nowhere to hide for Mayo as they aim to dethrone Fergal O’Donnell’s defending Connacht champions on their home patch. Ten years ago O’Donnell was the man who lifted the Nestor Cup in the same venue on a sweltering Sunday evening when a late, late Gerry Lohan goal had primrose and blue ribbons hanging from the old trophy for the year at the end of one of the games of the ages.
