There are some cracking ties down for decision when the Roscommon football championships get underway on the weekend of the 25th and 26th of July.

In the Hodson Bay Hotel SFC, Roscommon Gaels take on Western Gaels while old rivals Clann na nGael and St. Brigid’s meet – as will neighbours Elphin and Strokestown.

Michael Glavey’s will face Tulsk and St. Croan’s will play Fuerty in the games fixed for Saturday, the 25th of July. There is one SFC game due to be played on Sunday (26th) and it’s the mouth-watering clash of Boyle and defending champions Padraig Pearses.

In the Mulryan Construction IFC, championship favourites St. Faithleach’s open their campaign against St. Aidan’s. Kilbride will face Creggs while St. Barry’s will take on St. Dominic’s on the 25th. On Sunday (26th) Ballinameen take on Shannon Gaels, Kilmore face Oran and Conor Cox’s Eire Og will meet Castlerea St. Kevin’s. A full list of the fixtures can be seen on the Roscommon GAA website.
