I’ve been fairly inactive here the last while for the simple reason that I was away on holidays. I did pack the laptop alright but it wasn’t opened much over the last two weeks, what with all that switching off and tuning out that needed to be done.
Our return from the sun late last night appears to have coincided with the end of the second week of summer weather here. Oh well, we saw plenty of sun ourselves over the last fortnight so we’ve no complaints to make on that score, despite the frequent monsoon downpours here today.
There’s been some stuff going on over the last few weeks while I was otherwise engaged and so didn’t mention here. Such as the Liam McHale interview and his reported interest in the Mayo LGFA manager’s job, the proposals reportedly being put to the upcoming Special Congress about League finals and the need to create a gap to the start of the Championship, not to mention all the ongoing club Championship action, in both football and hurling.
Then there was the Mayo Masters’ All-Ireland Plate final win over Roscommon yesterday and Breaffy’s All-Ireland Senior Ladies Rounders Championship final win over Glynn Barntown today. Well done to both of them.
Mike and Rob have also kept the fires stoked on the podcast with plenty of new shows available on Patreon over the past two weeks. Pick of the bunch there were the episodes featuring interviews with Conor Diskin and Kevin McLoughlin, as well as all the club Championship coverage.
There’s more club Championship action this coming weekend, of course, as the group stage in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior football Championships conclude and the knockouts beckon. More on all that over the next few days.
