After a rain delay and surf weekend break, the NSW GAA championship resumed in earnest over the weekend with the start of the championship playoff round. The result that caught the eye yesterday at Mono Park, Sydney, was in seeing last year’s senior football champions Young Ireland’s go out of this year’s competition when easily beaten by surprise league winner’s, Cormac McAnnallens. Mac’s were dominant throughout and handed out a 14 point mauling to the YI’s. Meanwhile hurling champions, Craobh Padraig did much better when continuing recent good form, they recorded a similar margin of victory over Central Coast, while in another rematch of the league final, Michael Cusacks booked their place in the hurling final with a four point win over league winners, Sydney Shamrocks. ‘Shamrock’s will now play Craobh Padraig in the semi final next weekend. In Camogie, favourites Clan na Gael and Central Coast proved too much for Craobh Padraig and McAnallens respectively while in ladies football unbeaten Central Coast staked their claim in this year’s final when outsing Cusacks. The latter will now meet Clan na Gael in the semis after they overcame McAnallens on Sunday.

So next week we will have the  NSW Championship semi finals taking place where we will see:

10am (H) Sydney Shamrocks v Craobh Padraig
10.50am (C) Clan NaGael v Cormac McAnallens
11.30am (M) Clan NaGael v Cormac McAnallens
1pm (L) Clan NaGael  v Michael Cusacks
2.30pm (M) Michael Cusacks v Penrith Gaels
