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. The men from the butt of Nephin came out on top by 3-10 to 1-12 after what was a rip-roaring provincial title decider between two teams who really went for it. […]

Lahardane looking to seal Connacht glory once more

Lahardane MacHales are back in action this coming Saturday, with this year’s Mayo JFC winners aiming to win their second provincial title at this level.

Much-changed Minors dig out draw

With next Friday’s all-or-nothing Connacht MFC semi-final against Roscommon facing Mayo, the opportunity was understandably taken in tonight’s Round 5 match against Sligo to ring the changes in terms of team selection. As a result we took the pitch with a much-changed team, showing fourteen changes from last weekend, but, despite this, the two teams served up an entertaining contest, […]

The weekend’s matches

We’re still a bit away from the big match down in Killarney but in the meantime there are a few games of interest involving county teams on this coming weekend.

Super Sligo march on to U20 final

This is a big weekend for Sligo’s footballers but, after this evening’s enthralling U20 All-Ireland semi-final win for the county over Kerry, it’s already guaranteed to be a great one. Tomorrow’s Nestor Cup decider is, of course, important for the Yeats County but a first-ever Championship win over Kerry, guaranteeing Sligo only their second ever appearance in an All-Ireland final, […]

U20s crash out to impressive Magpies

Like the Seniors last Sunday, the county’s U20 Connacht campaign this year lasted just the length of a single match. Unlike the Seniors, though, at U20 level the Connacht Championship is straight knockout and so this evening’s 0-17 to 1-9 defeat to an impressive Sligo outfit means the end of the road for them. This match was meant to be […]
