Weekend roundup

A busy weekend in Canton with finals and semi-final places to be decided.  In senior football, Aiden McAnespies defeated Armagh-Notre Dame by 10 points to advance to the senior football final, while Donegal beat Christopher's in a playoff to reach the other semi-final against Wolfe Tones to be played Tuesday evening.  Senior final is Aiden McAnespies v Wolfe Tones or Donegal.

Saturday's Intermediate football semi-final saw Kerry easily beat Galway, and on Sunday Shannon Blues beat the Connemara Gaels to advance to a semi-final against Christopher's (losers of their senior football playoff).  That game will also be played Tuesday evening.  Intermediate final is Kerry v Shannon Blues or Christopher's.

Now the picture gets a little clearer.  In junior A football, Donegal beat Shannon Blues and McAnespies beat the New England Celtics to set up a Donegal v McAnespies junior A football final.  In junior B football, Galway(beat Mayo) and the Connemara Gaels (beat Donegal) will meet in the final.

Tipperary are in the senior and junior hurling finals and will play Galway and Fr. Tom Burke's respectively.

(There was a correction made to the original report regarding the junior B football final, Galway beat Mayo by a point in last weekend's semi-final.)
