Weekend of calculation and speculation!

The senior and intermediate football championships reach critical juncture this weekend as the group stages draw to a close. A remarkably open championship has left clubs jostling for points and position as the knock-out stages loom.

  In the senior championship, Boyle have been boosted by the return of Enda Smith and can still reach the quarter-finals should they beat champions, Clann na nGael.

  Meanwhile in the People Sport ‘Game of the Weekend’, anything is possible for Roscommon Gaels as they take on Pádraig Pearses in Kilbride on Saturday. Quarter-finals, semi-finals or relegation may await The Gaels depending on the result!

  In the intermediate championship, Fuerty and St. Dominic’s face-off in Kiltoom with contrasting possibilities awaiting them. Fuerty are in pole position to claim a semi-final spot while Dominic’s could make the semi-finals, quarter-finals or miss out all together depending on the result.

  Oran, meanwhile, will be looking to take advantage of the likely absence of Conor Devaney when they take on Kilbride in Ballyforan on Sunday as they look to sneak into the last eight.

A weekend for calculation and speculation awaits!
