Port Mór set for Keady battle

Two clubs at the lower end of division 2B face off on Sunday afternoon at O'Neill Park. Just one point separates the teams in this rearranged fixture.

These teams played in the 2018 Junior Final with Keady coming out on top, Port Mór finished runners up in the league and both sides were promoted.

Indeed Port Mór have numerous links with Keady with two previous managers originating from the South Armagh town. Former Armagh and Keady player Vinny Loughran managed An Port Mór in 2007 and led Port Mór to promotion. Back in 2001, another Keady man Don Commiskey led Port Mór to an Intermediate final against Tír Na ÓG, unfortunately the North Armagh men came out on top.

Back to Sunday and it's Keady who will be slight favourites, the visitors had a good run in the championship and it took eventual winners Clann Na Gael to knock them out at the Semi Final Stage. Keady will be hoping for a win to edge them closer to the top 4 while Port Mór are looking over their shoulder at the bottom sides.
