The AIB Connacht GAA Club Senior Football Championship semi-finals are down for decision this weekend. In MacHale Park on Sunday,Ballintubber(Mayo) will host the Roscommon champions, St. Brigids, whileAughawillan(Leitrim) take on Corofin from Galway in Pairc Sean MacDiarmuida, Carrick on Shannon.
Aughawillan who scored, what many believe was a surprise victory over Sligo’s Tubbercurry in the quarter final, (2-12 to 0-13) will have home advantage for their clash with Corofin. Aughawillan who last competed in Connacht was in 1994, when they reached the final of the competition, losing out to Tuam Stars. They had impressive display in their defeat of Tubbercurry and will be hoping to build on that and be lining out for a Connacht final on the 16th November.
Corofin who have captured the last two titles in Galway, will be hoping for better fortune this year in their provincial campaign after going down to Castlebar Mitchels in the semi-final of the competition in Tuam Stadium last year. They had an impressive win over Galway city side St. Michaels in the Galway County final, winning on a score line of 5-12 to 0-9 and will be hoping to carry on the good form shown in the Galway club campaign to Connacht.
The other semi-final sees Ballintubber return to the provincial championship having played in it in 2010 and 2011. On both occasions they were defeated by Galway opposition by a single point, (2010 Killererin 0-9 Ballintubber 1-5, 2011 Corofin 1-11 Ballintubber 2-7). Their success in Mayo in the county final was over last year’s All-Ireland Club finalists Castlebar Mitchels, (2-9 to 1-9).
St. Brigid’s have just completed a five in a row of County titles in Roscommon and will be aiming to recapture the provincial title they held in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Last year saw them defeated in the provincial final by Castlebar Mitchels after extra time, (3-13 to 2-12) and the Kiltoom side will be eager to return to the provincial decider to capture their fourth Senior club title.
