The latest edition of the GAA Connacht Council’s bi-monthly magazine, Into the West, is out now – available from here. It’s a monster issue too, running to all of 88 pages, with loads of match reports from around the province as well as a number of feature articles. This is the fifth edition of the publication and Liam Horan is, I think, doing a great job as editor of it, providing as he does a platform for a load of news about what’s going on within the GAA in the province. While there’s understandably plenty of coverage given to high profile events such as Corofin’s Connacht club championship success, there’s also oodles of space devoted to all those lower key contests which have taken place recently at county level and which deserve their piece of limelight too. Plenty to keep you amused of a winter’s evening, in other words.

On a different note…congratulations to Tom Reilly from Belmullet who has become chairman of the Cavan county Board. Tom a cousin of the other Willie Joe played minor, U21 and senior with Mayo. Toms father was well known in the Erris area being one of the last dwellers on Inishkea Island. The father was known as Pat Rua and all his sons have given service on the football fields of Mayo, Donegal and Cavan.
I’ll second that ontheroad.
Tom is my uncle-in-law. He’s worked very hard over the years with the Cavan GAA, so this is richly deserved.
As with a lot of exiled Mayomen, the distance away from the county hasn’t lessened his passion for Mayo football. Hopefully one day we’ll all be rewarded for the years of pain and anguish!
Likewise, it sounds like a well-deserved honour. Maybe he could do something to right the wrong of 1948 while he’s in the post!
Willie Joe, you are a genius! How come I never thought of 1948. That was the worst of grand theft larcenry. Maybe Big Tom might scrub Cavans title from the records. Incidently the man who blocked down Carneys 14 yard free was domiciled in Kiltimagh for a short part of his life. Cavans Mick Higgins was born in the States of a Mayo father, when the dad returned they supposedly stayed in Kiltimagh before finding employment in Cavan. Another twist in the annals of Mayo football. We wont mention the four minutes the ref wiped away on us at the end.
