The draws for the 2017 Connacht Gold Senior Championship, Fox's Monumentals Intermediate Championship and the Pyramid Bookmakers Junior Championship were made this evening in The Bush Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon.

The main talking point after the draw, which sees the Senior and Intermediate Championship undergo format changes, was undoubtedly the number of heavyweights who have been drawn against each other in Group A of the Senior Championsip.

As well as defending champions Aughawillan and the previous year's winners Mohill, Group A also contains  Ballinamore Sean O’Heslin’s, Allen Gaels, Melvin Gaels and Gortletteragh. 

Group B also promises to be intriguing as it sees fierce rivals Annaduff and Bornacoola pitted against one another in a group that also features Glencar/Manorhamilton, St Patrick’s Dromahair, Drumreilly and St Mary’s Kiltoghert.
