Sligo SFC semi-final line-up is finalised

Wins in the final round of group matches for Coolera/Strandhill and Curry in Group 1 – and for Drumcliffe/Rosses Point in Group decided the semi-final line-up for the 2021 Homeland Sligo senior football championship.

Coolera/Strandhill continued their impressive form in Group 1 with a 3-15 to 0-13 win against relegation play-off bound Tubbecurry to finish top of Group 1.

They’ll be joined in the last four by Curry who pulled clear of Calry/St Joseph’s in the second-half in Bunninadden to win by 2-20 to 2-8.

In Group 2, Drumcliffe/Rosses Point and Shamrock Gaels produced the game of the day with a point in added time from Eoghan Smith giving the north Sligo club the narrowest of victory by 0-13 to 1-9. Shamrock Gaels had led by two points in the closing stages but DRP responded well late on to edge out the win.

Defending champions Tourlestrane are assured of top spot in Group 2 despite their game with Geevagh being postponed as a mark of respect to the late Cathy Egan, Tourlestrane’s club secretary, who passed away this week.

Tourlestrane will face Curry in the semi-finals on the weekend of October 9/10th, while Coolera/Strandhill will play Drumcliffe/Rosses Point a repeat of last year’s semi-final.
