Reigning All-Ireland Champions are safely into the Galway SFC semi-finals. They will face Mountbellew/Moylough. Meanwhile, Moycullen and Tuam Stars are drawn against each other.

Group 2 winners Moycullen overcame St. James’ in the quarter-final with five points to spare. The other qualifier from Group 2 Mountbellew/Moylough are also in the final four. After losing to Moycullen in the final group stage, Mountbellew/Moylough bounced back with a 2-13 to 1-05 win over Kilannin.

Next, Mountbellew/Moylough face the toughest opponent in club football in Corofin. This year, Corofin are chasing eight-in-a-row. The absence of an All-Ireland to defend won’t diminish their drive. Their quarter-final victory over Salthill-Knocknacarra stretched their unbeaten run to fifty games.

In fact, Corofin are looking as driven as ever. In their four games so far they have racked up twelve goals. Corofin vs Mountbellew/Moylough is a repeat of the 2017 and ’18 finals. The 2018 final went to a replay before Corofin could reclaim their title. Again, Mountbellew/Moylough have nothing to lose going into this game and won’t be afraid to take on this club giant.

Tuam Stars are the opposition for Moycullen. After losing in the opening round, Tuam Stars have recovered well to find their form. Their quarter-final with CLG Bhearna was the most tightly contested. Finally, Tuam emerged one point victors to advance.

Both semi-finals take place on Sunday. Firstly, Moycullen take on Tuam Stars at half one. Then, Corofin and Mountbellew/Moylough fight it out at half four for a place in the final.

Galway SFC Semi-Finals: Tuam Stars vs Moycullen (1.30pm); Corofin vs Mountbellew/Moylough (4.30pm). Sunday 27th September, Pearse Stadium.
