Dismay as Connacht semi-final rescheduled

There was widespread dismay among supporters and club officials yesterday following the late postponement of the Connacht Club IFC semi-final between St. Dominic’s and Aughnasheelin.

The game was originally scheduled to take place at Avant Money Páirc Sean Mac Diarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon but was moved to Cloone GAA due to an unplayable pitch on Sunday morning. The pitch in Cloone was also unplayable and so the match was postponed until next weekend much to the annoyance of players, officials and supporters.

The semi-final was due to throw in at 1.30 pm on Sunday but was called off just one hour beforehand after the referee deemed the pitch unplayable.

Yesterday evening (Sunday), Connacht GAA released details of the rescheduled match which is now set to take place at Avant Money Páirc Seán MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon next Saturday, November 26th at 1.30 pm. It has also been decided that If that pitch is unplayable the game will be played at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan.

If St. Dominic’s win on Sunday they will play Galway champions Dunmore MacHales in the final on Sunday, December 4th at Dr. Hyde Park.
