SATURDAY’S RESCHEDULED COUNTY JUNIOR B FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP QUARTER-FINAL
The eagerly-awaited meeting of newly crowned West champion Granagh/Ballingarry and East runners-up Fedamore in the Limerick County Junior B football championship quarter final cancelled on Thursday night due to the weather has been rescheduled for this Saturday 6th November in Croom at 3p.m. This is the first ever meeting of these sides in this competition.

Fedamore, winners in 2015 when they defeated Crecora/Manister by three points 1-7 to 0-7 at Croom, suffered a 2-15 t 1-8 defeat to Knockane in the East Limerick final in a game they were well in the running until they were reduced to fourteen players 20 minutes into the opening with a straight red card will be hoping to reach their first semi-final going under to Banogue 1-12 to 1-3 in 2019.
