Division 3, 4 and 5 Semi Finals 2015

Wednesday, May 20th


(Update Tuesday 19th May – These fixtures have now been moved to Knockmore GAA due to pitch closures – times are unchanged)

Congrats to everyone on getting thus far, it’s a great achievement for your school and some reward for your commitment to football.

Please read all the following bits, fixtures and times are in the attachment (2015 Div 3,4,5 Semis) and at the bottom of this also. This year’s semi finals rotation is North Mayo v East Mayo and South v West.

 We will have 4 pitches in operation on Wednesday. You will be on some of Castlebar Mitchels or the County Board Pitch adjacent to MacHale Park. I would like to thank the club and the county board for the continued use of these great facilities, without which we would struggle to hold all these games.

 Try to arrive at least a half hour before your throw-in time to allow time for everything. As always there is a tight schedule, so latecomers will hold things up badly and you may risk forfeiting your game.

 We will have neutral officials: 1 referee and 1 linesman per game as well as, hopefully, 1 umpire per goal. Team mentors will not be permitted behind the goals. We would ask all schools to follow directions on the day and comply with our motto of “Give Respect, Get Respect” and ensure that all team players, mentors and supporters behave in an appropriate manner.

Extra time will be played on the day at 5 minutes per half. If this fails to separate teams then there will be one further 5 minute single half. After that, we’ll have to replay.

Teams will be photographed prior to your game by our official photographer and hopefully you will appear in the local papers the following week.

If you make the county final that will also be the picture in the programme and I will be looking for a numbered teamlist and brief, 100 word article on your school and Cumann na mBunscol history ASAP, you could even be writing it now if you are confident!

If there’s any errors please get in touch! I would like to thank all of you for your efforts thus far and to thank all the area secretaries and organisers for their tireless work every year in running everything. Thanks also to the numerous clubs,venues and referees who have facilitated us all year.

Good luck to all.

James Feeney,
