Hurlers roar to Rackard Cup victory

In the depths of last winter behind closed doors at Croke Park, Mayo’s hurlers saw the Nicky Rackard Cup snatched from under their noses when two late goals for Donegal saw their the men from the hills pull off a smash-and-grab title success.

The weekend’s matches

Another weekend is fast approaching – a Bank Holiday one too – and, with it, more Championship action involving teams from the county. There’s football on this coming weekend but not involving the men this time and there’s plenty of small ball action too.

It’s back to Croke Park for Rackard Cup final

This time it’s the hurlers, whose Nicky Rackard Cup […]
