Tooreen through to All-Ireland final

Tooreen are on their way to Croker. Their All-Ireland Intermediate hurling Championship semi-final against Liatrom Fontenoys of Down finally went ahead at Breffni Park in Cavan this afternoon, having been put back by 24 hours due to the then prevailing sub-zero temperatures. With the cold snap over this morning, the pitch was fine for action today. Tooreen really looked to […]

Tooreen go again on Saturday

This coming weekend, just a week out from Christmas, Tooreen are once more back in club Championship action. This time the match in question for the Connacht IHC champions is the All-Ireland semi-final and their opponents on Saturday are Liatroim Fontenoys from Down. The match takes place at Breffni Park, Cavan, where throw-in is 1pm. The good news is that […]

Master fixtures schedule for 2023 published

The GAA published its Master Fixtures Schedule for 2023. The link for it is here. The finalised schedule confirms all the major (and minor) dates for fixtures next year. For example, the All-Ireland football final is fixed for the final weekend next July, with the Connacht final scheduled for the first weekend in May and the first All-Ireland round-robin matches […]

The weekend’s matches

There’s no club football action on at adult level within the county this weekend, with the clubs gearing up for the start of the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championships next weekend. This means a rare chance for Rounders to grab the limelight. It’s only right that this less-heralded GAA code should get a mention, as two Mayo clubs are in […]

Goals decisive as Kerry advance to the final

Goals definitely do win games. Kerry got four of them in this afternoon’s LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final and we didn’t get any. We may only have ended up scoring once less than they did over the course of the game but they still won with a lot to spare, nine points to be precise, on a scoreline of 4-10 to […]

A place in the final beckons

It’s a truly glorious morning weather-wise up here in the capital and for Mayo’s women footballers a glorious opportunity awaits at Croke Park this afternoon. Their LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final against Kerry throws in at 2pm with the winners playing either defending champions Meath or Donegal in the decider in a fortnight’s time. Expectations for this Mayo team weren’t all […]

Unchanged team to play Kerry in semi-final

The Mayo team to play Kerry in tomorrow’s LGFA All-Ireland Senior football semi-final was named last night. It’s the same fifteen who lined out in last weekend’s quarter-final win over Cork and is as follows: Mayo (LGFA All-Ireland semi-final v Kerry, 16/7/2022): Aisling Tarpey (Foxrock/Cabinteely); Éilis Ronayne (Davitts), Róisín Flynn (Knockmore), Danielle (Castlebar Mitchels); Tamara O’Connor (Cill Chomain), Fiona McHale […]

One step from the final

This year’s LGFA Senior Championship has provided a few shocks on the way to this weekend’s semi-finals. The biggest one is that neither Dublin nor Cork feature in the final four this summer, which means that it’s set to be the first final since 2002 without either of them in it. The semi-finals will be played as a double-header at […]
