The Galway Football Club Championship returns this weekend. After the conclusion of the group stages, the qualifiers had a week to recover and prepare.
All-Ireland holders Corofin begin the action on Saturday. They continue to go from strength to strength. They scored 7-17 and 4-18 in two of their three matches so far this year. Salthill-Knocknacarra will be the latest to take on club football’s equivalent of Dublin. Their draw with an Spidéal was enough to send them through Group A. Throw-in is at 2.30 on Saturday.
Next, Tuam Stars and CLG Bhearna take the stage. No team defeated CLG Bhearna in group 1. In contrast, Tuam Stars have already tasted defeat in the championship. Caherlistrane won by two points in their opening game. However, since then Tuam Stars have been on the rise. This tie is on Saturday evening at 5.30.
Then, the quarter-finals continue on Sunday. Mountbellew/Moylough vs Killannin opens the action at 2.30. Both of these have just one defeat on their record so far. Specifically, Mountbellew/Moylough fell to group 2 winners Maigh Cuilinn. Likewise, Killannin lost by just a point to Tuam Stars. Both of these teams will fancy their chances of getting to the semi-final.
Finally, Maigh Cuilinn vs St. James’ completes the round. Maigh Cuilinn scored 11 goals in their three games to this point. Additionally, they are unbeaten. Similarly, St. James’ scored 3-16 in their last outing. If recent form is anything to go on, this game could be a cracker. It begins at 5.30.
