Tourlestrane to begin championship defence against Shamrock Gaels

Sligo senior club football champions Tourlestrane will begin their quest for a four-in-row of county titles against last year’s intermediate champions Shamrock Gaels when the 2019 Belfry senior football championship begins in July.

The draw for this year’s championship has paired Tourlestrane and Shamrock Gaels in a five-team group along with St Mary’s, St Molaise Gaels and last year’s county finalists Tubbercurry.

The format of the senior championship in Sligo has changed this year with the county’s 10 senior football clubs being divided into two groups of five.

Group 2 comprises: Drumcliffe/Rosses Point, Calry/St Joseph’s, Eastern Harps, Coolaney/Mullinabreena and Coolera/Strandhill.

The top four teams from each group will qualify for the quarter-finals with the bottom team in each group contesting the end-of-season relegation play-off.

The first round of group matches is scheduled for July 27th/28th.
