Kennedys Intermediate Championship Previews
Kennedy's Intermediate Football Championship Round 1

St. Michaels v St. Farnan’s 

On Saturday evening the Kennedy's Intermediate championship gets underway as last year’s beaten finalists St. Farnan’s facing St. Michael's. Farnan's who have recently changed managers with former County Minor Manager Aidan Rooney taking over will be hoping that Kent Park will see him off to a good start. 

But despite been relegated from Division 2 of the League this year Michael's will be hoping to cause an upset on Saturday and they will feel if they can keep it close in the opening half they could come out the right side of the result come Saturday evening. 

Curry v Geevagh 

The game of the weekend in the Intermediate championship is the meeting of Curry and Geevagh both teams have been used to Senior Championship in the recent past and both teams will be eager to get off to a winning start. 
This could end up a shoot out between Adrian Marren and Kenneth Sweeney with both the chief score takers for either side. 

Geevagh will be hoping for a big game from Pat Hughes and Jodie O’Reilly while Red Og Murphy will be hoping to impress for Curry. 

Division 1 football could be difference as Curry might just come out on top. 

Enniscrone/Kilglass v Castleconnor 

Group 3 of the Intermediate Championship will be a Battle of the West this year with 3 West Division teams facing off. Castleconnor come into the match on the back of winning the Division 2 league two weeks ago against Calry/St. Joseph's and they will be hoping to drive that success through in a bid to win the intermediate championship. 
Enniscrone/Kilglass who are managed by Con O’Meara will be hoping for a win for his side and to get them over the line on Sunday. Enniscrone finished the league on a high with a win over Geevagh but you would have to think that Castleconnor should win this by two or three points. 

Ballymote v Shamrock Gaels 

Another local derby at the weekend as Shamrock Gaels who were playing in Division 1 all year will be playing Ballymote who just came up short in the Division 3 Final. 
But that was the League and Ballymote who were the Junior Champions last year will be eager to get this year’s Intermediate championship campaign off to a flying start. 
Both teams will be hoping for a good championship, Ballymote will be hoping that Peter Lyons, Mark Irwin and Daniel Clarke can lead the team throughout the pitch. 
Meanwhile Shamrock Gaels have a youthful side and the Hailstones brothers Darragh and Seamus have been going well in the league. Francis Quinn and Liam O’Connell will need show leadership for John McPartland's side if they are come out on top on Sunday.
