Reliving Kilmeena’s day of glory

A quiet – or, perhaps, not so quiet – sense of satisfaction is sure to be settling in now way out west, as Kilmeena adjust to their newly elevated status in life, that of All-Ireland champions. They’re only the fourth ever Mayo club to win an All-Ireland club title, following in the footsteps of Crossmolina Deel Rovers, Ballina Stephenites and […]

Kilmeena are the kings of Junior football

While those of us at Clones were focused first and foremost on the match being played out in front of our eyes at St Tiernach’s Park, there was plenty of interest too in what was happening down at Croke Park. Updates were being shouted over and back amongst us in the Mayo fraternity in the stand and plenty in the […]

Logjam of Mayo-related matches on Sunday

It’s frequent enough that the attention of supporters can be divided across different games on the same day. This coming Sunday, however, Mayo fans will have their eyes on four separate locations, with teams from the county in action in games contested across three provinces, two of which are All-Ireland deciders.

Classy Kilmeena cruise on to Croker

Well, Kilmeena did that and more in this afternoon’s All-Ireland JFC semi-final against Clonbullogue of Offaly at Pearse Park in Longford where they romped away to a massive 1-18 to 0-6 win. They now head for Croke Park tomorrow week to contest the All-Ireland final against Kerry’s Gneeveguilla. The Mayo lads were […]

Mighty Mitchels are in the final

The women footballers of Castlebar Mitchels are on their way to the All-Ireland final.

Up until the second water break this was a tightly fought and cagey contest. Mitchels enjoyed the greater possession but their […]
