Wasteful Knockmore just come up short

They say goals win games but, you know, points help too. Accuracy in front of the posts even more so and, on that metric alone, Padraig Pearses deserved their win over Knockmore in today’s Connacht Senior club football final. They recorded just two wides compared to fourteen from the Mayo champions as they emerged from James Stephens Park the victors […]

Kilmeena canter to Connacht title

Mayo JFC champions Kilmeena had it all their own way in the Connacht Junior football final at Markievicz Park today. Sligo’s St Patricks were no match for the West Mayo outfit who galloped to a sixteen-point win, on a scoreline of 1-18 to 0-5. I kept one ear on Midwest for some of the game but I wasn’t, I confess, […]

Farewell to 2021

We’re six hours away now from the end of 2021, another weird year dominated by Covid which, I think it’s fair to say, most of us will be glad to see the back of. That’s before factoring in any thoughts about the All-Ireland final, the stinging pain from which stubbornly refuses to dull with the passage of time. Yes, 2021 […]

In the Senior final Knockmore once again make the short journey into town as their provincial title decider against Padraig Pearses of Roscommon has been fixed for James Stephens […]

Results round-up

It was a case of two out of three ain’t bad for the Mayo teams in Connacht club Championship action this weekend. The two wins yielded two provincial titles so let’s start with those victories. Yesterday at the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence Tooreen beat Galway’s Moycullen by 1-15 to 0-14 to claim the Connacht Intermediate hurling Championship. It was […]

Three All-Stars plus YFOTY award for us

The GAA/GPA Gaelic football All-Star awards for 2021 were unveiled on RTÉ a bit earlier on this evening. The football awards had none of the shock value of their hurling equivalents in what was an uncontroversial and largely fair selection. We came away with three All-Stars. Lee Keegan picked up his fifth award, cementing his place as one of the […]
