Club results wrap

Well, that was an action-packed two days of club football. At its conclusion the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championships are all down to the final four, with the participants in the last-chance-saloon relegation play-offs at Senior and Intermediate also decided. In the LGFA Championships, it’s down to the finalists for the Senior decider. Here’s a quick wrap-up of all the […]

Goals decisive as Kerry advance to the final

Goals definitely do win games. Kerry got four of them in this afternoon’s LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final and we didn’t get any. We may only have ended up scoring once less than they did over the course of the game but they still won with a lot to spare, nine points to be precise, on a scoreline of 4-10 to […]

Sunday match reports

I’m off down the road to Croke Park in a bit – and what a day for football it is too – but first it’s only right to do a quick post providing links to the games involving us played this weekend. Friday evening’s All-Ireland Minor defeat was as disappointing to us as it was thrilling for Galway, the neighbours’ […]

Women footballers storm into LGFA All-Ireland semis

It proved to be a day of shocks in the LGFA Senior Championship, with Dublin – so dominant in recent year, until losing last year’s final to Meath – dumped out by Donegal, while our two-point success over Cork in one of the day’s other quarter-finals was also an upset. Kerry, too, wouldn’t have been fancied to beat Armagh but […]

Galway get tactics right to claim Minor title

There was a big crowd of over […]

Monday match reports

Well, that’s it for another year at Senior level, as we exited tamely from the Championship yesterday to Kerry at the quarter-final stage. It’s not all doom and gloom, of course, as the Minors have an All-Ireland final to look forward to in two weeks time and the women are still in it too. Here’s what’s online about the weekend’s […]

Kerry 1-18 Mayo 0-13: second half squander does for us

Yes, the injuries were a factor in our hugely disappointing exit from the Championship at Kerry’s hands in today’s All-Ireland quarter-final but they weren’t the deciding issue. What was instead was our squandering of chance after chance in the second half at a time when we were more than holding our own in the contest. Kerry, by contrast, were far […]

Ladies lose to Dublin

Both Mayo and Dublin were already safely through to this year’s LGFA All-Ireland quarter-finals ahead of their final round group meeting at O’Moore Park in Portlaoise this evening. At stake in this game, though, was victory in Group A, with the winners handed a less taxing assignment in the quarters in two weeks time. Three points in arrears at half-time, […]
