Football draw throws up interesting pairings

In their last championship clash, the town side recorded a runaway win. The losers of this tie will be out of the championship race and will be into the battle to avoid relegation to the intermediate grade

Ennistymon, following their victory over Eire Og, await the winners of the remaining first round game between Doonbeg and Miltown St. Josephs.
