Ardagh V Kilmeena
Both teams are through to the quarter finals so it's the case of who finishing top and 2nd. Kilmeena beat Ardagh in the league so Ardagh will want to get one over them.
Kilmeena are top 2 favorites for the junior title.

Tourmakeady V Kilfian
Both teams are out of the championship but it's a case of pride and also Kilfian will have fond memories of beating Tourmakeady in the 2020 county Exclusive B Final earlier this year which was a huge success for a small club. I believe Tourmakeady have improved after while Kilfian have been hot and cold with their form.

Achill V Kilmovee Shamrocks
This is a win or bust for either team.
Cill Chomain are through.
Kilmovee have been protesting over why should they been playing in Achill as Achill were supposed to play Lacken at home in round 2 but since then Lacken have pulled out of the championship so Achill got the 2 points.
Regardless where the match is played I believe Achill will win.

Cill Chomain V Lacken Sarsfields
Lacken Sarsfields have pulled out of the championship so have conceded the last 2 games V Achill and Cill Chomain.
Ballycastle V Moygownagh
Another win or bust tie for either team.
Ballycastle will be delighted with Round 1 win over Eastern Gaels but Shrule/Glencorrib were to strong in round 2. Moygownagh will be happy as they have been struggling with players availability this year but put up encouraging displays in the last 2 rounds.
It's a derby game so no love lost between both teams.

Eastern Gaels V Shrule/Glencorrib
Shrule/Glencorrib are through to the quarter finals but will want to remain unbeaten. Eastern Gaels will be disappointed with the round 1 lost to Ballycastle but to cause an upset the next day is a long shot!
Shrule/Glencorrib by 3.
Islandeady V Ballycroy
Islandeady are not through yet to the quarter finals but they should account for Ballycroy. Islandeady are keeping quiet in the camp and are promoted to Division 2 and an impressive 12 points win away to Killala in round 1.
Ballycroy will be sore after there 1 point loss to Killala in Glenamoy where they should be playing in Ballycroy.

Charlestown vs Knockmore is the other big one. Knockmore are defending champs but need a win to make it through to the last 8.

Ballintubber V Claremorris
Ballintubber are through to the quarter finals and still not gone away so this may be there last shot for a Senior title.
Claremorris have been poor in this level for quite some time only 2 Semi Finals to show for 2008 & 2017. They need a big performance to cause a shock.

Ballina Stephenites V Davitts
Ballina got back on track after beating Claremorris after losing to Ballintubber by 9 in round 1. Davitts also have been poor at this level since promotion to Senior 2012 only 1 quarter finals to show for. They are a good relegation team so will be in the dogfight again.

Belmullet V Aghamore
An historic win for Belmullet over Knockmore in the last round in the wet/windy Erris so confident will be high and it's about keeping momentum. Aghamore should be praise for there excellent comeback V Charlestown scoring 4 second half goals. It could go either way.

Charlestown Sarsfields V Knockmore
County champion Knockmore are in danger of being the 1st champion to NOT get out of the group since there great rivals Ballina Stephenites in 2008. Charlestown are a great monkey off Knockmore backs so it's will be difficult. The pressure is on Knockmore and Charlestown will embrace this challenge.
Ballaghaderreen V Castlebar Mitchels
So one big team will be out this weekend in this group of death! Ballaghaderreen blitzed Castlebar 2 years ago in the semi final but never seem to reach them heights again. Andy Moran/Michael Solan will want to finish the job with Ballaghaderreen with a county title before going to Leitrim so they must win this tie to keep their hopes alive.
Castlebar I believe are in transitional period.
Ballaghaderreen by 2.
Balla V Westport
It been whirlwind 1st year back to Senior for Balla especially in this difficult group but they have put up encouraging display only losing by 5 Castlebar and 1 to Ballaghaderreen. Westport are flying and remain the team to beat in this year championship.
Westport by 6.
Breaffy V Garrymore
Breaffy were made to work hard in their win over Kiltane and supersub Colm Flynn made a difference scoring 1-4. Seamus O'Shea was out injury so they will need him back. Garrymore will be delighted with their improvements after last year they were in the relegation play offs. Garrymore are the 3rd longest Senior team in Mayo so remain hard beaten.

Kiltane V The Neale
The original Tommy Goals Conroy V The present Tommy Goals Conroy! Both teams are out to win to avoid the relegation play offs. Kiltane are expert for survival while the Neale are only in there 2nd year playing Senior football.
