This coming weekend is filled with action on Saturday and Sunday. Mayo and Kerry meet Saturday at 4:15 in a game that neither side will want to lose. Mayo have put in some strong performances so far as have Kerry, and at this stage winning championship points is critical. At 5:30 Galway face a tough task in an effort to secure their first win of the year against the Shannon Blues. The teams had last weekend off, but the Blues have looked the stronger of the two teams so far this year.
On Sunday the Ladies footballers get their second outing of the season when the Boston Shamrocks take on Tir na nOg. The Shamrocks will be looking for a better display following Tir na nOg lopsided victory the last time the sides met. Aidan McAnespies will be favoured to keep their winning streak alive when they face Armagh-Notre Dame at 1:15. McAnespies have won their three games so far and Armagh-ND took their first win of the season last weekend against Cork. Christopher’s will be hoping to get back to winning ways against rivals Cork at 2:30, Cork have been struggling so far this year. Christopher’s on the other had look strong and need a win to push for the playoffs. Wolfe Tones and Donegal top the bill at 5:00 in what promises to be a grand finale to the day. Donegal played some good football in their victory over Kerry last week, and Tones have tied their last two games and need a win to solidify their playoff credentials. The senior hurling match of the day features Tipperary and Fr. Tom’s as the teams vie for the senior hurling championship. Tipp looked very strong in last week’s encounter against Galway, and Tom’s will have their work cut out to add to their points tally in what looks to be a strong senior hurling championship.
