Intermediate Championship Fixtures
Round 7 August 29th
Trugh v Kilkishen
St. Joseph’s v Corofin
Scariff 5-10 v 3-13 Whitegate
There are three rounds of games left in the competition and the remaining games will determine semi-final pairings. Again this year there will be Cup and Shield semi-finals and finals. The top four teams will qualify for the Cup semi-finals with the next four in the Shield semi-finals.
Junior Championship Semi-finals
Feakle v Inagh
Eire Og v Killanena
It is hoped to play these games in Tubber (weather permitting), there is also a hurling game so times will have to be confirmed, hoping for 2:30 and 4pm
Feakle will hope to overturn the defeat to Inagh in last years championship. The East ClAre side have already won the League and will hope to keep the winning momentum going as they look to follow in Scariffs’ footsteps in heading for the Junior double. Inagh had a slow start to the campaign but have since had strong wins over Crusheen and Kilkishen and will be hoping to get back into the final after losing last year.
Killanena will be strong favourites to overcome the challenge of the town outfit who have made it to their first Junior semi-final in many years and where they have been building the underage club up this should be a step too far for them this year.
PK Coaches Senior Championship
Round 2 August 29th
Bodyke v Broadford 11am
Clooney v Sixmilebridge 12:30
Kilmaley v Kilnamona 11am
Wolfe Tones v Newmarket-on-Fergus 12:30
Bodyke and Broadford will be an interesting game on Sunday morning as both will require the points to keep their championship hopes alive. Both these sides will also line out with girls from Tulla after they pulled out of the Intermediate Championship.
Kilmaley and Kilnamona are the other teams in this group and with both having points from the opening weekend of games they will be looking for wins here. The winner will be guaranteed a semi-final place and neither will want to leave that chance to the final game where they will play the strengthened teams of Bodyke or Broadford.
Clooney need a win in their game against Sixmilebridge as they look to keep their championship hopes alive. While the full squad was not available to them the last day through injuries they will be hoping for a full panel this time as they will be more balanced. They will run the young Sixmilebridge side all the way.
Sixmilebirdge will be looking for their first Senior win in a number of years as they look to move the underage success and u18 titles of the last two years on to the next step. A tight game expected with the ‘Bridge’s first outing this year due to a postponed game in round one.

The finals of this exciting competition are here again. They are listed for the weekend of September 5th/6th and with 20 clubs taking part there is sure to be lots of excitement again this year. There are four teams in each grouping and they will all play each other with the team with the most points winning the div titles and where teams are level on points the goal difference will be taken into account.
Over the last number of weeks over 150 games have been played with more than 400 girls taking part. This is seen as a great experience for the girls and with all teams involved on final days there will be huge interest.
