Camogie, LGFA fixtures this weekend

The big match down in Tralee on Saturday evening isn’t the only Mayo game on this weekend. In fact, there here are two camogie matches involving the county being contested over the coming weekend, as well as an LGFA one. Starting with camogie, the Juniors are in League action against Wicklow where they’ll be aiming for two wins from two […]

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 […]

Game day – this one’s a tough test

The lads head north today for our Round 2 outing in this year’s League campaign. Monaghan provide the opposition in this one, with throw-in at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones set for 2pm. Tyrone’s Se├ín Hurson is the ref for it. The match isn’t on television nor is it being streamed so if you don’t plan to be in Clones […]

Classy Kilmeena cruise on to Croker

Semi-finals, so the saying goes, are for winning. 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 […]

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, […]

Kilmaine just do it

The Junior football Championship final ended a short while ago and it’s Kilmaine who are the champions. They only just edged out a heroic young Kilmeena side, capturing the Pete McDonnell Cup on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-12. This was a real high quality decider played in perfect conditions in a sunwashed MacHale Park. The vantage point provided by […]

Tooreen’s three-in-a-row + the rest of the weekend’s results

At MacHale Park this afternoon Tooreen clinched their third county SHC title in a row, beating Castlebar Mitchels by 0-18 to 1-13. It was the East Mayo club’s 30th county title but they were made to battle hard by the underdogs today before eventually getting their hands on the TJ Tyrell Cup. Tooreen led by three points at the break […]
