Chris looks back and ahead

Photo: Mayo Advertiser/Sportsfile Chris Barrett has always been the kind of player who does his talking on the pitch. No more so than last year, when a succession of standout performances over the course of our long and winding road to September, topped by quite a sensational display in the All-Ireland final, propelled him to an All-Star award.

In Round 3 this coming Sunday we face newly-promoted Galway at Pearse Stadium, where throw-in is 2pm and where the LGFA match between the same two counties acts as the curtain-raiser […]

The Farney file

It’s Monaghan we’re up against first and we play them at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones on Sunday where throw-in is set for 2pm. Meath’s David Gough is the man with the whistle for this one. We played […]
