Twenty county finals on another busy weekend of club action

October 17, 2018

Darren Hughes (Scotstown), Tony Kelly (Ballyea), Alan Dillon (Ballintubber) and Ryan O'Dwyer (Kilmacud Crokes) will be in action with their respective clubs this weekend.

Twenty county finals across both codes - thirteen in football and seven in hurling - are down for decision this weekend.

The Mayo SFC showpiece between Ballintubber and Breaffy, which will be played underlights, will take place on Saturday evening. The Wexford SFC final replay and the Leitrim and Sligo SHC finals have afternoon throw-ins on the same day.

Among the standout football deciders on Sunday are Coalisland v Killyclogher (Tyrone), Athy v Moorefield (Kildare), Ballymacnab v Crossmaglen (Armagh) and Gweedore v Naomh Conaill (Donegal) which is TG4's live game.

In hurling, new champions will be crowned in Dublin, Clare and Tipperary while Gorey's Naomh Eanna will contest their first-ever Wexford SHC final against holders St Martins. 

Throw-in the Ulster club SFC first round clash of Scotstown and Derrygonnelly, plus a host of county quarter-final and semi-finals and it's another busy weekend of action.
