Tables July 5

Finally the weather has improved, and hopefully the fixtures that were postponed can be made up reasonable time (even though as I write this there are thunderstorms outside). The playoff spots have to be decided in the next 6 weeks.

Make up games aside, next Saturday sees 2 senior football championship games, Wolfe Tones play Armagh-Notre Dame, and Donegal play Kerry. It would take an upset of major proportions if we do not see the Tones and Donegal adding two more points each.

Sunday presents a more interesting encounter as Mayo and Cork meet. Can Cork pick themselves up after last weekend's defeat and salvage something from the season? Also, McAnespies and Shannon Blues meet in the 5:00 game. Macs will be favoured to win, but the Blues will give them a real test of where they stand and whether they can make it 5 championships in a row.

There are 2 senior hurling games on the card. Tom's play Wexford - Wexford will be comfortable favourites for that one. Cork and Galway also face off, I have not seen Galway play this year, but Cork could look at this as a chance to add to their victory over Tom's in their last game.
