On a night when Drumreilly provided the first major shock of the 2015 Championship, this year’s Connacht Gold Senior Championship Quarter-Finals will see a repeat of last year’s County Final when champions Aughawillan were drawn to face St. Mary’s Kiltoghert.

On a night when Drumreilly provided the first major shock of the 2015 Championship, this year’s Connacht Gold Senior Championship Quarter-Finals will see a repeat of last year’s County Final when champions Aughawillan were drawn to face St. Mary’s Kiltoghert.

13-man Drumreilly scored a shock and famous 1-7 to 0-9 victory over neighbours Carrigallen to book the last place in this year’s Quarter-Finals, a victory that was raucously greeted by jubilant and scarcely believing Drumreilly supporters in Ballinamore on Saturday.

And in the Fox’s Monumentals Intermediate Championship, Cloone showed their potential with a comprehensive 3-13 to 2-6 victory over Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher in Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada.

The repeat of last year’s County Final is the stand-out fixture of an intriguing set of games with Aughawillan favoured to advance against a St. Mary’s team who have yet to really catch fire in this year’s Championship.

League champions Glencar/Manorhamilton face a tough encounter against Allen Gaels while Mohill have a derby against Annaduff. And Drumreilly, dramatic winners in Ballinamore, will face Gortletteragh.

In the relegation series, Bornacoola take on Dromahair with Carrigallen facing Kiltubrid.

In the Intermediate championship, four remarkably balanced games often some intriguing contests with favourites Melvin Gaels taking on playoff winners Cloone. Eslin take on Ballinamore Sean O’Heslin’s in an intriguing contest while Leitrim Gaels take on Fenagh St. Caillin’s and Drumkeerin take on Aughnasheelin.
