St Macartan’s signalled their championship intentions and their championship credentials as they breezed into the last four of the Time Venue senior football championship on Tuesday night. Aodh Ruadh after a good first half succumbed to the Clogher Valley side that turned in a powerful last quarter with Linda Donnelly and Niamh McGirr scoring goals as St Mac’s ran out 3-8 to 0-5 winners.

Paula Donnelly scored a first half Macartans goal as the Dungannon side hit four points. They only managed one further score as a returning from injury Jolene Donnelly joined Cathy Donnelly and McGirr hitting points to set up a semi-final clash with Cill Iseal. That game goes ahead at Dunmoyle on Friday 22nd with the much awaited Errigal Ciaran v Carrickmore semi-final the previous evening in Beragh. The introduction of Jolene Donnelly after such a horrendous injury is a massive boost for St Macartan’s while at the other extreme Shannon Quinn’s absence for Errigal is a concern. It would though be impossible to pick this year’s senior finalists, quality abounds on all four teams

It’s set to be a hectic few days in the club championship scene in the county with Intermediate and junior ties pencilled in. The intermediate semi-finals are planned to go ahead but there is still some doubt about the Omagh – Sperrin Og tie with both clubs in discussion about a possible re-fixture date.

Both clubs can call on vast championship experience going into this semi-final and the winners of this tussle will certainly go into the final as favourites. For Vinny McCullagh and Pat Clarke though it’s about getting through this last four outing.

Loughmacrory who were perhaps surprise winners in some people’s eyes against Donaghmore will face a tough task against Ardboe at Kildress on Friday night. Malachy Coyle’s Loch side will go into the game full of confidence though after that quarter final win over Donaghmore at the Wolfe Tones but Mickey Rea’s O’Donavan Rossas who edged out Clan Na Gael have a lot of experience although Rea would be first to admit that there is room for improvement.

Junior Quarter finals are also down for decision over the next few days. Trillick face last year’s Junior B champions Badoney, Mna na Dierge play Galbally as Edendork tackle Fr Rocks and Drumragh go head to head with Dromore in what could well be the tie of the round.

Urney and Coalisland are set to contest the county’s Junior B final with all the finals expected to be played before September 7th the Ulster Council’s cut off date for champions ahead of the Ulster club series. The East and North Tyrone sides are involved in league semi-finals this weekend.
