The second round of the county senior, intermediate and junior A football championships is scheduled to take place during the coming days with the third round scheduled for the week-ending Sunday, September 15.

COUNTY SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

GROUP ONE

In the opening round of games Moyne-Templetuohy got off to a hugely-encouraging start when beating Galtee Rovers (2-12 to 0-13) while Clonmel Commercials edged their contest with Arravale Rovers (0-9 to 1-4). Both of the second round games in group one will take place on Tuesday, August 27. And, there will be a lot at stake in Lattin (6.45pm) when Arravale Rovers take on Galtee Rovers while Moyne-Templetuohy will enjoy the challenge of facing Clonmel Commercials at Leahy Park in Cashel (6.45pm).

Tuesday, August 27
Arravale Rovers v Galtee Rovers-St Pecaun in Lattin @ 6.45pm
Moyne-Templetuohy v Clonmel Commercials in Leahy Park, Cashel @ 6.45pm

GROUP TWO

Ardfinnan beat Kiladangan (0-9 to 0-2) in the opening round while JK Bracken’s proved too strong for Ballyporeen (1-12 to 0-11). So, Ballyporeen desperately require a win over Kiladangan on Friday, August 23 in Boherlahan (6.45pm) to get their season back on track while there will be many interested observers at Golden on Tuesday, August 27 (6.45pm) when 2018 county finalists Ardfinnan take on a JK Bracken’s team who have huge potential.

Friday, August 23
Kiladangan v Ballyporeen in Boherlahan @ 6.45pm

Tuesday, August 27
JK Bracken's v Ardfinnan in Golden @ 6.45pm

GROUP THREE

Loughmore-Castleiney top group three on scoring difference thanks to their 2-9 to 0-4 opening round win over Kilsheelan-Kilcash while Cahir also registered a narrow win over Aherlow Gaels (2-4 to 1-6). So, both Kilsheelan-Kilcash and Aherlow Gaels desperately require a win to get their season back on track when they meet at New Inn on Friday, August 23 (6.45pm). Cahir will face Loughmore-Castleiney at Leahy Park in Cashel on Sunday, August 25 (6pm).

Friday, August 23
Kilsheelan-Kilcash v Aherlow Gaels in New Inn @ 6.45pm

Sunday, August 25
Cahir v Loughmore-Castleiney in Leahy Park, Cashel @ 6pm

GROUP FOUR

In the opening round Éire Óg Annacarty beat Killenaule (0-13 to 1-8) while defending county champions Moyle Rovers just about got the better of Upperchurch-Drombane (0-7 to 0-6). Therefore the collision between Upperchurch-Drombane and Killenaule on Friday, August 23 in Littleton (6.45pm) is vital. Both sides have already lost a game and can’t afford to lose another. Meanwhile Éire Óg Annacarty will take on Moyle Rovers on Sunday, August 25 at New Inn (2pm).

Friday, August 23
Upperchurch-Drombane v Killenaule in Littleton @ 6.45pm
