Breaffy GAA chairman Gerry Bourke is keen for his club to banish the ghosts of a couple of “near misses” and take home the Mayo SFC title this Sunday.

The west Mayo men take on Knockmore at MacHale Park on Sunday (throw-in 3.35pm) in a game that will be shown live on TG4 and Bourke is hopeful that the team can deliver at the fourth time of asking in recent years.

“A lot of people ask me the question whether I'd prefer to see Mayo win the Sam Maguire or Breaffy to win the Moclair Cup,” he told GAA.ie

“Without a doubt, the Moclair Cup would be my priority. I couldn't put it any plainer, and I'd say the players would tell you the same thing.

“This is what we want. This is our fourth kick at it now and I think we're a better team and a better squad than we were before. We thought we were there before, we thought we were good enough, but we had a couple of near misses.

“We just weren't scoring enough. We scored 11 points and Ballintubber scored 12 in one of the finals. Now we have the ability to score more. That's our greatest asset now, we're putting up bigger scores.

“It would be massive if we could do it.”
