BALLINTUBBER WILL RESUME the defence of their Mayo senior football championship title with a clash against Belmullet in the last eight.

Should they successfully negotiate that challenge, a rematch with 2018 runners-up Breaffy could be on the cards in the semi-finals.

The draw for the SFC quarter-finals and semi-finals, which was made tonight, has put last year’s finalists on a collision course, with Breaffy set to take on Ballina Stephenites in their next outing.

Ballintubber won their fourth county title in nine years when they defeated Breaffy by just a single point in last October’s decider.

On the other side of this year’s draw, Castlebar Mitchels — the three-in-a-row champions from 2015 to ’17 — will face Knockmore, who they defeated in the 2016 final.

The winners of that tie will be rewarded with a semi-final against Ballaghaderreen or Davitts.

Venues, dates and times have yet to be confirmed.
