Goal glut seals FBD win in Big Apple

The lads obviously weren’t taking any chances in Gaelic Park in New York a bit earlier on and they clearly were in no mood to get sucked into a second battle this year against overseas opposition. 4-5 to 0-3 to the good against the Exiles at half-time, we ran out 7-12 to 2-8 winners in the end to seal a […]

FBD final final this Sunday

We’re into October and the season of mists, mellow fruitfulness and the ban on collective training (for those goody-goody counties who abide by it) is but round the corner from us now. Strange, then, to think that we have a senior inter-county match taking place this coming Sunday and stranger still that it’s on in New York where, for the second […]

Monday morning match reports

It’s another Monday morning and there’s another bundle of match reports and stuff on yesterday’s facile FBD victory over Leitrim to go through. First up, as always, is Colm Gannon’s report for the Mayo Advertiser and once again this week he’s supplemented his written piece with some post-match audio from James Horan. Like last week’s one, this bit of audio […]

Tomorrow’s match

Our final group match in this year’s FBD takes place in Ballinamore tomorrow afternoon (throw-in 2 pm) where we face Leitrim for the first time in ages.  I think the last time that we came into contact with the Ridge County was as long ago as the Connacht semi-final of 2006 where we managed to extricate ourselves from Carrick-on-Shannon with just […]
