Bo­her­bue v St Michaels

BO­HER­BUE re­turn to Donough­more on Satur­day on a meet­ing against St. Michaels in the County Ju­nior A Foot­ball League Fi­nal. Dis­ap­point­ment sur­faced for both sides over re­cent weeks, cham­pi­onship hopes ran out of road on de­feats in­curred by even­tual fi­nal­ists Dro­mar­iffe and Kil­macabea.

St. Michaels parad­ing a sec­ond string out­fit fin­ished run­ners up to De­laneys in the City JAFC Fi­nal. Into the county, they over­came Val­ley Rovers be­fore suc­cumb­ing to Drom­tar­iffe by six points in a quar­ter fi­nal.

Mixed for­tunes for St. Michaels in crunch games, los­ing the County Pre­mier IFC Fi­nal to Fer­moy be­fore savour­ing a County Pre­mier 1 Mi­nor Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship ti­tle at the ex­pense of Nemo Rangers.

For their part, Bo­her­bue had real as­pi­ra­tions of cre­at­ing an im­pact on the county af­ter re­tain­ing a di­vi­sional crown fol­low­ing a re­play vic­tory over Drom­tar­iffe. A good vic­tory fol­lowed over Canovee but in a quar­ter fi­nal packed with en­ter­tain­ment over two games, Bo­her­bue fal­tered to a phys­i­cally stronger Kil­macabea in damp con­di­tions.

A chance here for some con­so­la­tion for both St. Michaels and Bo­her­bue, ex­pect a com­pet­i­tive bat­tle be­tween the pair in search of a league ti­tle.

St. Michaels re­ceived a walkover from Kil­murry in a listed semi fi­nal ow­ing to play­ers in­volved with Clough­duv hurlers whereas Bo­her­bue got a good test from Car­rig na bhFear in Donough­more. That may be good enough for a bet­ter equipped Bo­her­bue to se­cure the hon­ours.

KEALE Gaels seek to add league hon­ours to a County Mi­nor B Hurl­ing cham­pi­onship won a few weeks ago when they en­counter Ballinhas­sig at Ovens on Sun­day. NEW­MAR­KET go in search of County Mi­nor B Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship hon­ours, squar­ing up to St. Colms in Bal­lyvour­ney.
