Lahardane emerge from the fog as Connacht champions

Lahardane MacHales this afternoon clinched their second Connacht Junior football title, beating off the spirited challenge of a youthful Owenmore Gaels team at a fog-bound Hastings Insurance MacHale Park.

Tooreen’s tremendous journey continues.

Lahardane were up against […]

Ballina bow out

Ballina Stephenites this afternoon crashed out of the Connacht club SFC, losing out to Galway champions Corofin. The match was played in windswept conditions, standard fare at Pearse Stadium, where Corofin handled the conditions far better, bagging fourteen scores from play to win by 0-16 to 0-12. The Stephenites were forced to field without the injured Padraig O’Hora and joint-captain […]
