GAA JOE Team of the weekend

The provincial finals have now been confirmed.

The weekend kicked off with a close encounter between Kilcormac-Killoughey and O'Loughlin Gaels.

The Offaly side rallied hard in an impressive second half but, trailing by seven at half-time, they had left themselves with too much to do. Still, the efforts of Charlie Mitchell and Oisin Mahon didn't go un-noticed.

Jordan Molloy, meanwhile, was best for O'Loughlin Gaels who defended very well on the afternoon.

Saturday night was just as entertaining then with Glen and Naomh Conaill going the distance in Omagh. Emmett Bradley was the late hero for his team with Cathal Mulholland and Conleth McGuckian impressive throughout.

On Sunday, Scotstown and Trillick lived up to the hype with the Monaghan side just about shading it. The efforts of Kieran Hughes and Conor McCarthy were key in a big win.
