The Lake County list

Cusack Park in Mullingar is our next destination in this year’s National League Division Two North campaign. On Saturday we’re set to face Westmeath there in a game that throws in at 3pm that afternoon. The match is being broadcast live on Eir Sport and Noel Mooney of Cavan is the ref for it. We’ve played the Lake County twenty […]

A year on

It’s certainly not an anniversary to celebrate but if nothing else it’s worth noting that it’s a full year to the day since our lives were upended due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. It was on this day exactly twelve months ago that then Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced from Washington DC the first suite of public health restrictions, including a […]

So, regardless of what has happened on the other side of the provincial draw, on Sunday we’re back in Championship action once again. This time we’re up against defending Connacht champions Roscommon with the match taking place at Dr Hyde Park. Throw-in on Sunday is 1.30pm and the game is being broadcast live on RTE2. Meath’s David Gough will ref […]
