Galway GAA Club Championships have reached the quarter-finals. Last weekend concluded the group stages with Corofin strongly expected to add to their seven-in-a-row streak.

Their drive has not been lessened by the lack of an All-Ireland to be won this year. The champions beat An Cheathrú Rua last Friday. A 16 points to 6 win extended their unbeaten run in club championship to 48 games. This sets up a quarter-final tie with Salthill-Knocknacarra.

Meanwhile, Tuam Stars beat Claregalway to top their group. This sets up a fixture with Bearna. Other group winners Moycullen and Mountbellew Moylough have been pitted against St. James’ and Killannin respectively. However, we have to wait for the 12th and 13th of September for these games to be played.

Lastly, the relegation draw was also made. First of all, Monivea Abbey play an Spidéal. Then, Caherlistrane must overcome Michael Breathnach’s.

The Hurling championship also had its quarter-final draw. The Galway GAA competition features holders St. Thomas’ and 2019 runners up Liam Mellows both safely in the knockout stage. Last year’s finalists avoided in each in the draw. Liam Mellows had to see of Gort Inse Guaire in a playoff after finishing second in their group.

Again, St. Thomas’ are very much the team to beat.

These games come around on the 5th and 6th of September. The full quarter-final draw is here:

Loughrea vs Liam Mellows

St. Thomas’ vs Killimordaly

Turloughmore vs Sarsfields

Cappataggle vs Ahascragh Fohenagh
