Mayo clubs learn their fate in Connaught competitions
The Mayo clubs still involved in Connaught competitions have learned their quarterfinal fate.
It's a potential quarterfinal in the case of Westport United and Castlebar Celtic, who both have round of 16 games to play this coming Sunday (August 2) in the T.P. Brennan Connaught Cup.
Westport have home advantage against Tuam Celtic on Sunday and should they emerge victorious, they will be at home again in their last eight encounter, hosting Ballinasloe Town – who knocked Ballyglass out of the competition last Sunday.
Celtic's round of 16 game on Sunday is away to FAI Junior Cup semi-finalists Athenry. If they come away from east Galway with a victory, they will be away to Galway opposition again in the quarterfinal as Salthill Devon – who knocked Ballina Town out of the competition in an earlier round – await the winners of that game.
The other two Connaught Cup quarterfinals are West United v Carbury FC, who ended Manulla's hopes in the competition last Sunday, and Castlerea Celtic, conquerors of Conn Rangers at the weekend, at home to St. Bernard's FC.
In the T.P. Brennan Connaught Shield, Kiltimagh/Knock United and Glenhest Rovers are Mayo's two remaining clubs. The former travel the short distance to Ballaghaderreen FC for their quarterfinal, while Glenhest will have home advantage for their clash with Ballymote Celtic.
The other two quarterfinals are: NUI Galway v Colemanstown United and Real Tubber v Corofin United.
The quarterfinals in both the T.P. Brennan Connaught Cup and T.P. Brennan Connaught Shield are due to be played on Sunday, August 9, kicking off at 2 p.m.
