The losers of round one are out in action at the weekend and it’s a must-win game for the teams involved as another loss will mean exit from the championship.
Boherlahan-Dualla, beaten by Moycarkey-Borris in round one, will face Holycross-Ballycahill who lost to Drom & Inch. This game will take place in Littleton on Saturday evening and it should be a close affair.
Also on Saturday in Templetuohy JK Bracken’s will face Mid and County champions Thurles Sarsfields. Sarsfields will be hoping for victory to keep their chances of retaining the title alive. The winners of the loser’s group games will face Moycarkey or Drom in the quarter-final.
Mid Senior Football Championship
On Sunday evening in Kickham Park Loughmore-Castleiney will hope to move one step closer to retaining their title when the face Moycarkey-Borris in the Mid semi-final. It’s great to see the fantastic progress Moycarkey have made in recent years in football and having won last year’s county intermediate football championship they will no doubt relish the prospect of facing one of the powerhouses of football in the county.
Congratulations to Loughmore-Castleiney on their win over Arravale Rovers in the county under-21A football semi-final. This will be Loughmore’s third consecutive appearance in a county final and it is a magnificent achievement for the club. We wish them every success as they attempt to retain the county title.
