Championship excitement mounts in both Down and Armagh

September 11, 2017

The real action in both the Down and Armagh championships will begin in earnest this coming weekend as semi-final and final places in all 3 grades Senior, Intermediate and Junior are there to be won.

Whilst Armagh are at the quarter-final stages in Senior, neighbours Down have two thrilling semi-finals taking place. Burren take on Castlewellan on Friday night at Pairc Eslar and on Sunday defending champions Kilcoo will take on Downpatrick at the same venue. Armagh Senior and Intermediate quarter final games will be played over Friday, Saturday and Monday nights. There will be a lot of joy and heartache for both players and supporters to endure. Hopefully the weather will improved dramatically to give players the chance to perform to the best of their abilities.
